Valentine's Day Gift Ideas -- The Tatty Teddy and Other Plush Toys from Douglas Toys (Review and Giveaway)

Welcome to

It's not Valentine's Day without surprising that special someone with a stuffed animal.  :-)  Well, now that I have two daughters, Valentine's Day isn't reserved just for my sweetie!  Instead, my husband and I love surprising the girls with a new plush bear, to show them just how much we love them.  So, when I when I was looking online recently for cute and unique plush bears to get for the girls, I stumbled across the Douglas Toys website.  What first caught my eye was their wide selection of cuddle toys that both children and adults would love.  I especially loved their baby plush toys section, and how they break down their toys by age groups, making it quick and easy to shop for the girls, and get a plush toy that was age appropriate for them. 

I ended up reaching out the folks at Douglas Toys, who agreed to send me a review plush toy, as well as offer a plush (up to $35) to one lucky reader -- read on to learn how to enter this fun giveaway.  So, after narrowing down my list of plush animals I knew the girls would like, I ended up requesting the Tatty Teddy below for review:

Large Tatty Teddy Love-Hearts picture 

Large Tatty Teddy Love-Hearts -- 12" Sitting. Show someone just how much they are loved with an 'I Love You This Much!' soft, grey Tatty Teddy stuffed bear with three, cascading, embroidered hearts.

In addition to this Tatty Teddy, Douglas Toys also offers the following other Tatty Teddy bears, which are equally as cute and cuddly:

I ended up choosing this one, as I always tell the girls "I Love You This Much," as I stretch my arms out wide each day.  I used to have this running saying with my father growing up, and it is nice to be able to share it with my own daughters.  The girls were taking their afternoon nap when I took this cuddly bear out of the box.  So, I was able to give it a good hug and squeeze before having to hand it over to them.  :-) I couldn't get over how cute and lovable this plush bear looked.  And, it was bigger than I expected, which was also a plush.  Once the girls woke up, I couldn't wait to show them my surprise.  As they stood in the hallway with their eyes shut, I quickly pulled the Tatty Teddy out from behind my back.  Their eyes lit up and they both had huge smiles on their faces.  Usually they would fight over a toy, as they each would want their own.  But, they both ran over to the bear and gave it a big hug together.  It was so cute to see.  Then, Savannah took the bear into the living room and sat it at their kitchen table for a tea party.  All afternoon, the girls took turns getting in cuddle time with their new Tatty Teddy from Douglas Toys, and by the end of the night, they both passed out on the couch -- with the Tatty Teddy in between them. :-)

Don't tell Arabella, but she will be getting her own Tatty Teddy for Valentine's Day -- that way they will not have to fight over cuddle time with this cute and oh so lovable bear. :-)  But, in meantime, they continue to take turns and have Tatty Teddy at their tea parties.  I even shared the Douglas Toys website with my husband, with a few links to plush toys that I would love for our Anniversary and/or Valentine's Day.  Maybe, I will get lucky and be able to cuddle up with one of these cute bears in the coming weeks. :-)

Do you love cute plush toys, or know someone who does (adults and children)?  Then, why not head on over to the Douglas Toys website and plush their extensive selection of plush toys today.  Any of their products would make for a great Valentine's Day gift for that special someone in your life.  The hard part will be choosing just one plush toy (as they are all so cute).  Oh, and good luck not purchasing one for yourself?  :-)
