When you were growing up did you have a special stuffed animal or doll that you considered your “friend.”
When I was a young girl I had A LOT of plush friends. I had two that were with me all the time. I never left home without them (visiting relatives, going on vacation). I didn’t actually take them to stores or places like that with me – I just liked knowing I had them to cuddle with at night.
My friends are pictured above. The gray one is Pal and the brown dog is Bridgette. I believe Pal was actually a dog at one time (not bear). Poor Pal. He is in sad shape but I love him just the same. Both plush are 47 years old. They have been with me since I was a baby.
I had amassed a huge collection of stuffed animals when I was younger. Whenever I was at the store I would pay a visit to the stuffed animal section. Whenever I found a plush animal that was less than perfect (mashed face, missing an eye, marked up…) I would buy it. I know it sounds silly but I used to think that they had feelings and that the ones that were flawed were never going to get purchased and therefore never going to experience love. So I would buy them and bring them home with me where I showed them love.
I don’t know if that makes me a big hearted person or just nuts. LOL!
Even as an adult I have a soft spot in my heart for plush animals. I have several in my home that I adore. They make me smile every time I look at them.
One of my furry friends is Mr. Bear. I sleep with him at night sometimes (no kidding!).
Here is my hubby with Mr. Bear. I got him for free from at the toy store for making a big purchase. I was going to donate him but he was just too cute and cuddly. I had to keep him for myself.
Have you heard of the brand Douglas Cuddle Toys? Douglas Cuddle Toys sells the most adorable, and realistic looking, plush toys.
Douglas Cuddle Toys has plush dogs, cats, zoo animals, wild animals – you name it.
Aren’t they just darling?
I was thrilled when Douglas Cuddle Toys reached out to me and asked if I’d like to do a review.
I received to review Ingrid, a Pembroke stuffed Corgi dog.
My great-great-Aunt lived in Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Wales where the Pembroke Welsh Corgi originates from. I’ve even been to Pembroke. I was there in 82′ and again in 86′. One of my favorite castles is also in Pembroke (Pembroke Castle, birthplace of Henry VII). I find it fitting that I received the Corgi as one of my review choices. I also happen to love the breed (they are so cute!).
Ingrid is about 14″ long – about the size of a Corgi puppy. She’s also incredibly cute and very realistic looking.
You many have seen some photos of Ingrid on my Instagram page.
Cute! Cute! Cute!
There are other Corgi dogs available at Douglas Cuddle Toys. I’m going to purchase the other dogs to add to my collection.
Douglas Cuddle Toys would like to give a lucky reader their own Ingrid Corgi plush toy (the same one I have). Thank you Douglas Cuddle Toy.
