Jellycat Stuffed Animals
Children of all ages love cuddling with soft toys like stuffed animals. One of the innovative companies behind those toys is Jellycat, which makes items for your baby and older kids. You'll find a wide range of creatures represented like a puppy, monkey, and even a bashful bunny.
What is the Bashful line?
To make parents and other shoppers feel more comfortable buying its toys, Jellycat created a bashful line. The bashful line features woodland creatures that look just a little on the shy side. Though the line started with just one bashful bunny, it now includes a number of other creatures like monkeys, penguins, and cats. Each Jellycat monkey, dog, and all its other bashful creatures are gentle to the touch.
How do you pick a soft toy?
Picking a Jellycat toy that feels soft when cradled in the arms of a baby requires looking at more than just the design. You should consider size and other factors as well.
- Size: Jellycat products come in small, medium, and large sizes. The small size includes those that are up to 14 inches in size. Its medium line ranges in size from 14 to 24 inches. All large products are more than 24 inches in size, including dogs and monkeys.
- Age of the child: No matter how cute that monkey or dog looks, it can be a potential choking hazard when given to a baby. Small children can chew and swallow any loose objects like button eyes or tags. Jellycat makes products that look like a monkey and other creatures without any loose parts.
- Type/design: The design that you pick may depend on the child's interest or the design of his or her nursery. You can pick an animal like a dog, monkey, bunny, or puppy. Jellycat also makes unique designs that look like lions and other wild creatures.
- Child's interests: Consider the overall interests of the child too. Some will love bashful bunny, while others might like a mischievous monkey. You may want an animal from your child's favorite book too.
Is color important?
Some research indicates that children develop faster and learn easier when exposed to neutral colors. Other studies found that kids do well when surrounded by shades of red, black, and white. No matter what colors you pick for your child's room or your home though, you can pick soft toys in other colors. You can enhance your child's view of the world with toys that feel soft and come in a range of colors. Jellycat makes soft toys and animals in a number of colors. Some are more traditional like a bashful monkey in brown or a little bunny in pink. Other soft animals feature brighter and bolder colors.
