So, I am thinking of investing some money in a new stuffed animal. But all I have around me is rather low quality or over expensive ones. So I wanted to ask you guys for opinions. It seems online is a good way to go for this. Is there any stuffed animal maker you guys like that does good quality? How can you judge quality from images and such?
I already have some things I am thinking about. Firstly, I want ones that are not small. probably 20+ inches or so. But as buying online is mostly around iamges and reviews... I am not sure how to judge quality. Any advice on good supplies of good quality and such? I really don't want to get one that looks great in the image, then turns out to be under-stuffed and too floppy, or with it's fur placed very sparsely so you can clearly see the "skin" they set the fur into. Suggestions?
(also my budget is $55 at best, including shipping, so please don't go on about this amazing $70 plushie and make me jealous.)
As for things I like, the only things I don't like in general are things like super heros and whatnot. I prefer animals, though some cartoon ideas might be interesting if you have one you love and it's good quality. (Going to get cuddled a whole bunch. ^~^ So I am largely filtering out anything that I can't cuddle well. By that I mean things like horses made to stand on their legs, which are super stiff, are not really that cuddly.)
