Who can imagine a world without soft, cuddly toys!? The traditional idea of an animal to cuddle was the teddy bear, which has been produced in thousands of versions for over a century. Some of the early versions were far from cuddly as the outer skin was rough and the mainly straw stuffing was not very soft.
Now however, cuddly toys have taken on a new dimension! Modern man-made materials of fillings and skins are so soft and warm, that they are sold in their millions around the world. There cannot be a child who goes to bed at night without cuddling their favourite animal for love and reassurance when the lights go out!
Every baby born, probably has many soft cuddly toys given to it during its early years, and the latest materials are safe enough to be given to the youngest of infants. Every animal you can imagine has been made into a soft toy, and although bears are very popular, so are tigers, elephants, rabbits and parrots!
The world's most famous online retailer sells an unparalleled selection of toys.
