I think it’s safe to say that at some point most kids have the favorite blanket or stuffed animal they just won’t let go of. I know this holds true for my own children and even myself. I had an adorable little stuffed monkey from birth that I was very attached to. This monkey actually travelled with me into adulthood and was even around when I had my first son. Unfortunately, at some point my monkey went missing. After all those years I simply don’t know what happened to him. What I do know is there was one gross factor to my monkey, after all that time he was kind of gross; dingy, dirty and definitely quite worn.
That’s one thing about stuffed animals, they don’t hold up well to what children can put them through. And now as a parent I know just how hard it is to maintain that favorite stuffed animal – it’s not as simple as tossing it in the washer, or is it?
With traditional stuffed animals you run into the issue of washing them. Running them through the washer usually ends in a tragedy of sorts. Matted fur, loss of stuffing, eyes popping off – you get the idea. But what if there was cuddly buddy, which your child could love, cuddle, and even muck up and cleaning him/her up would be as simple as washing a blanket? Well now you can have it all with Bommerscheim Buddies!
Bommerscheim Buddies were created three generations ago when Midwest sisters Joan and Pat Bommerscheim lovingly hand-sewed a plush long-eared Buddie for each of their babies. But they added a secret -- a fabric cover that could be removed, washed (or even replaced) when the Buddie needed to be cleaned. What a genius idea! Now a cuddly plush can truly be a forever (clean) friend.
Bommerscheim Buddies have an old time feel. There is something very nostalgic about them. I really appreciated their look when compared to most plush animals on the market today. Soft and certainly cuddly, Bommerscheim Buddies come complete with a cover in the pattern of your choice – there are many, many choices! These covers can be removed and washed as needed. Not only that, but you can purchase additional cover(s) for a fresh new look or simply as a backup, just in case.
With a new little one way I could see Bommerscheim Buddies as baby’s new best friend. And since we are still unsure of the gender I picked covers for each scenario. However, when my daughter caught a glimpse of the new “cuddle buddy” in the house it seemed to have magically made its way into her room and her bed.
Making for a wonderful gift this holiday season for that special toddler in your life or even a mom-to-be, with Bommerscheim Buddies you’ll give a gift that can be treasured for years to come. They are safe for baby with no loose eyes, or button noses that can pop off. And mom will appreciate Bommerscheim Buddies as opposed to traditional animals that can’t be cleaned.
