100 Innovative Stuffed Toys

From Explosive Gamer Plushies to Adult-Sized Stuffies

— March 4, 2011 — Life-Stages
This list of innovative stuffed toys is in memory of all the plush pals that forged memories into multiple childhoods. Growing up, stuffed toys normally meant a teddy bear or some other animal. This collection of stuffed toys shows just how much the plush market has evolved.

From explosive gamer plushies to adult-sized stuffies, stuffed toys are no longer aimed solely at the younger children’s market. The wide variety of plushies in this list may come as a surprise and there are even some that you most definitely would not want to get your child.

Whether you’re buying a gift for your kid or a friend, whatever age and whatever gender, there’s a stuffed toy out there for them. Who doesn’t like receiving a stuffed toy as a present?
