Douglas Cuddle Toys {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Kristy!}

There is something about stuffed animals that all children love. Whether it is their plush, soft cuddliness, their ability to be there for unconditional hugs and snuggling or the way that they can provide security and friendship all through the night, a great stuffed animal can find a place in a child's heart and stay there indefinitely.

But let's face it: there are a lot of stuffed animals out there these days and, unfortunately, many of them aren't so great. Big ones that fall apart, small ones that have pieces falling off, brands that are recalled due to poor craftsmanship... sigh. It's enough to make me want to avoid stuffed animals altogether sometimes.

That is, however, until I was introduced to one of top names in high quality, unique, endearing plush animals around: Douglas Toys.

From the most adorable stuffed dogs to the softest toy dinosaurs to the most adorable baby plush toys, Douglas Toys has been committed to making safe and quality toys for over 50 years. Whether you're looking for cute or realistic, you'll find all shapes, sizes and colors available that, with their sweet expressions, have a way of just being a step above a regular stuffed animal.

As I browsed the huge variety of kids' toys over at Douglas, I knew I had found the right thing for Big Sister E when I came upon the toy purses. Bright, colorful and available in seven different styles (horse, dog, butterfly, dachshund, guitar, cat and owl), they combine two things that every girl I know loves: purses and stuffed animals.

And when the Pink Calliope Horse Purse arrived, Big Sister E and I couldn't get over the utter cuteness.

I have to admit that, for a minute, I wondered how silly I would look out in public carrying a girls' toy purse. It's just that cute! The combination of the great fabrics and the fun features like the braided tail and the ruffle mane really give this horse a huge dose of added charm and appeal.

Plus, the strong construction and the zippered inner compartment really do make this a functional purse, which just makes it even more fun to give or receive it as a gift. How could you not want to head straight to Douglas Toys when you know that the reaction is going to be such a happy one?

Big Sister E would barely stand still, she was so excited about wearing this purse!

If you're looking for a darling plush item for babies, Douglas Toys has them all (some rattle or squeak for added effect) and you won't have to think twice about whether they are the highest quality. Or, if you're looking for a unique new cuddly pal for an older child, Douglas Toys has those, too - and they even have a great selection of stuffed animals that boys will like as well.

Available right on their website or at retailers across North America, Douglas Toys is definitely one of the top names in adorable, plush pals of all kinds. Giving one of these cuddle toys as a gift is one that you know will last through a lifetime of love. Thanks to their generosity, one person will get to find out just how great Douglas Toys are as well, because...

One lucky person will win the plush item of their choice
(up to $40) from Douglas Toys!
