Fuzzy Friends for Fun

Every kid should have a little stuffed animal trove. They fill in as props for games of make believe, pillows during story time, and friends who listen in accepting silence.

But finding the right fuzzy friend for a child is tough. It can't be rough, or too fuzzy (that just gets gross and uncomfortable). It should have some give and squish. And, preferably, it should be from harmless materials (why start out with toxic friends in early childhood). These stuffed animals, constructed from vintage towels (hopefully unused), fit the bill. There's nothing to come loose or fall off. The material holds up to stains and is wonderfully soft. And, they come in many animal friend choices, like elephants, pigs and monkeys. What's not to love?
