Clifford the Big Red Dog chews a new bone

Clifford the Big Red Dog is one of those properties that never really gets old. It's a certifiable classic. Now the big guy's poised to make a comeback courtesy of the Douglas Company.

The toy maker has some very cool looking bags and totes on the way featuring the character. Zebra and leopard prints are the order of the day for the line as the collection features lots of animal print, patent leather, and (of course) enough rhinestones to see you from space.

The Clutch is the perfect grab and go wristlet at 8.5” by 4.5”. It comes in both zebra print and pink leopard. Clifford’s profile is prominently displayed on the bag’s front, adorned with a glittery collar and a rhinestone heart shape on Clifford’s three dimensional ear. The bag has a swinging wrist strap and zipper closure for secure carrying. SRP: $13 each. The Whatever Sak™ also comes in both zebra print and pink leopard. This uniquely shaped 6” wide by 5” tall cylinder style bag has a zipper that goes around the top. Beneath the zipper closure is a very cool ruffled fabric trim that coordinates with the bag’s handle. Clifford’s profile graces the bag’s top, adorned with plenty of bling. The character and style of this go anywhere bag is a real show stopper. SRP: $20 each. The Satchel is available in the pink leopard print. Talk about style and design, this 9” wide by 6” tall bag is shaped in a half circle and is detailed to the nines.  A very cheerful full faced Clifford graces the bag’s front, holding a blinged out doggy bone in his mouth. The bag is completely trimmed in pink cording that coordinates with the rounded double handles. The bag has a sturdy zipper closure. Girls watch out because mom may be trying to take this one out. SRP:$24 each. The Tote is totally fun and funky cool! It could be another of mom’s favorites.  At 10” wide and 7” tall it has plenty of room for storing those must-have items. Clifford’s profile in bright red patent leather is on the left edge of the bag graced by Clifford’s three dimensional ear that has been embellished with a beautiful rhinestone heart shape. The zebra print bag is trimmed in a wide black shimmery accent trim and fully lined with red fabric. It’s double handles are a red patent with an easy opening at the top. SRP: $24 each
 Big Red Dog fans should look for the full line to be available at retail this September.
