Douglas Company Debuts Clifford The Big Red Dog {Review & Giveaway}

Douglas Company logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Karen!}

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 Cuddle Toys.

From adorable stuffed dogs to cuddly soft wildlife to fanciful unicorns and dragons, 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.

Most recently, Douglas is seeing red with all of the Clifford-themed products it has to offer due to their launch of their Clifford the Big Red Dog plush products collection. Available in all shapes and sizes, these charmingly sweet toys are ultra soft and snuggly, no matter if they are sitting, lying down, standing or, in the case of the 30" style, simply huge!

The collection is split into two categories, Clifford Cuddle Pals (plush characters) and Clifford Fun Fashion (themed purses) and, after browsing the adorable variety of options available from Douglas Toys, I knew that Big Sister E and Little Sister B would be thrilled with each and every one.

And when the Clifford Fun Fashion Tote w/Dog arrived, all three of us were immediately drawn to the complete and utter cuteness.

Bright, colorful and just the right size (8" wide) for carrying, this Tote combines two things that every girl I know loves: purses and stuffed animals. How can you go wrong?

The canvas-colored tote is contrasted with a fun quilted material lining and is finished with colorful trim and embroidery. Pulling out the removable mini Clifford the Big Red Dog, he can then be enjoyed as his own traditional stuffed dog.

Each time I have seen Big Sister E and Little Sister B enjoy the Clifford Fun Fashion Tote w/Dog, there has been a part of me that has wondered how silly I would look out in public carrying a toy purse with a stuffed dog in it. It's just that cute!

The combination of the great fabrics and the versatile features of this fashionable tote give it a huge dose of added charm and appeal and a whole lot of added fun for any Clifford fan. All that it needs is a matching Emily Elizabeth, T-Bone and Cleo!

The strong construction and durability of this tote ensure that it can be used as a functional purse, which just makes it even more fun to give or receive it as a gift. Add that to how well-made and high quality the Clifford plush is, and you've got two-in-one fun!

For darling traditional or unique plush items for babies and kids of all ages, Douglas Toys has the selection and quality that you need. Now with the addition of their line of Clifford products, the child in your life just has one more reason to love what you pick out.

Available directly from their website, Douglas Toys' plush Clifford pets and products range in size from 7" to 30" and have a suggested retail price range of $10 to $160 each. 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 their choice of Clifford Cuddle Pal or Fun Fashion (valued at $20 or below) from Douglas Toys!
