From Reproducitve Cuddle Buddies to Prickly Plushies

 - Aug 4, 2010   Updated: Mar 23 2011
When you think of plushies, you usually think of stuffed toys that are perfect for babies because of the fact that they're cute and cuddly and don't have any sharp edges.

However, this cluster of plushies for adults will get any grown-up going. From reproductive cuddle buddies to prickly plushies, these toys really aren't for kids!

Implications - No longer are cute and cuddly things the exclusive domain of the very young. In fact, this quirky collection of sweet and plushy innovations clearly shows that older customers with a soft spot for squishy toys are increasingly becoming a targetable and completely legitimate market demographic. The future of design knows no age restrictions, and that is a very good thing indeed.
