Target Rips Off FRED & Friends?

This makes us sad. We really like FRED & Friends’ products; they are fun and whimsical yet practical. We loved meeting up with their team at the Housewares Show. Now today we saw on their blog that Target and their new Cynthia Rowley summer Whim line like FRED stuff too.

Only problem is, they’ve copied and not given credit.

The Ice Kabobs from FRED (above, on left) look strangely, strangely similar to a new product from this Whim line (above, on right).

Check out the FRED blog post here. We can’t find the rip-off kabobs at Target anymore; perhaps they’ve been pulled?
