Douglas, THE Cuddle Toy - review and giveaway



Douglas, The Face of Fun and Play!

How thrilled was I when Douglas contacted me to see if I was interested in reviewing one of their products? VERY! My kids love plush animals and we are also considering rescuing a dog, so we have been discussing what sorts of breeds we would be interested in. Douglas offers a wide array of stuffed dogs. Although these animals are toys, they are also so realistic that it would be totally appropriate not only kids, but adult dog lovers as well.

It was a very difficult decision, but my girls picked out Mandy, a pale yellow lab. Well let's just say that I should have ordered another one too. They loved Mandy so much that it resulted in quite a few arguments. The dog is soft, cute and the perfect size for my girls. Miss E. was the lucky winner of Mandy (apparently sharing was not an option) and since then Mandy has been following Miss E. everywhere! To see some more of the sweet and adorable plush Yellow Labs that Douglas offers, simply click HERE!

One thing I really detest is junky, cheap stuffed animals. My kids loved the fact that Mandy is cute as a button. I loved that these toys are made by a company that value but quality AND TOY SAFETY. Douglas offers high quality, unique toys (to define this I consider that both the both the materials and the construction are of high quality)














Douglas also has a fun product line of RAD Dogs and Quilties (Dogs and Horses). These are very colorful, unique and great for the kid that loves something a little bit different. I LOVE the Multiflower Quilti Dog pictured below! The Quilties look like something little girls would treasure and although the RAD Dogs were probably designed with boys in mind, these would be good for either a little boy or a little girl.














Douglas also offers the following product lines:
- Baby
- Horses
- Cold Weather Animals

- Cats
- Wildlife and Farm
- Sea Life
- Teddy Bears
- Unicorns and Dragons (LOVE the Unicorns)
- Dinosaurs and Beasts



Another line I love is the plush purses. In addition to their classic plush bags and purses, Douglas now offers ADORABLE the Cuddle Purses. How could your little girl would not love this? Any of these would be well loved by your little fashionista.

Christina - xristya@rock.com - I love the 1968 Lakota With Rope Blanket Horse! I also love the idea of the purses that are little animals - when I was little I had a muff (for cold hands in the winter) that was a "lady" with her blue hat and blue skirt (they were "winter" clothes and the skirt was the part you put your hand into) and have NEVER forgotten it and just loved it and I think the animal purses would be the same for little girls!
