More of My Favorite Things . . .

When it comes to toys, there certainly are a lot of them which I've reviewed over the past year! But two of my favorites would definitely include the following . . . 

My Favorite Things . . . Stuffed Plush -
  • I just reviewed and gave away a Hallmark Interactive Storybook and Story Buddy and I have to say, these plush buddies are certainly on my "favorite things" list! I especially love Bigsby the Big Foot! Each Story Buddy is soft and snuggly and includes one storybook - when you read it, there are specific phrases which your buddy will respond to and add to the story in a very fun and unique way! There are five Story Buddies, which include Bigsby the Big Foot, Jingle the Husky puppy, Abigail the bunny, Watson the raccoon and Cooper the bear and all of them encourage a love for books, stories, imagination and friends! I love Story Buddys and think they are not only unique buddies, but they are sure to be wonderful "friends" as well! Children - and parents - will be delighted by the stories and how the buddies interact with it. 
  • If you ever wondered if an elephant could be soft and snuggly, wonder no more because Truffles the Big Red Elephant is this and so very much more! Truffles measures 24" long, is my very favorite shade of deep, ruby, fire engine red and is beyond soft and snuggly! What isn't there to absolutely love about Truffles? This plush elephant is so soft ,so snuggly, so wonderful in every way - you just want to hug and hug Truffles! I'm sure any child who receives this plush toy will not only receive a toy but a new best "friend" who is certain to be their constant companion for years to come! I love Truffles! (I got Truffles from Signals.com)
  • Over the years I've reviewed a number of plush puppets from Folkmanis and all of them are amazing, but one of their new puppets has absolutely found it's place on my "favorite things" list . . . the Portuguese Water Dog! At 24" long, this puppet looks like  a real puppy! Soft, cuddly, and very huggable, this puppet is sure to be a favorite of children who receive it and children who interact with it when it is used as a puppet at school, church or any other setting! The Portuguese Water Dog from Folkmanis is so plush, even though it is a puppet, children will love it like a plush friend . . . because it is both! (Keep watching because I'll be giving one of these away, too!)
Well . . . these are my "Favorite Things" in the area of plush toys . . . tomorrow I'll share more of my "Favorite Things"!
