Chances are if you child has one stuffed animal, he or she has plenty more. Lots of times, this collection of animals can grow out of control, hanging on to every stuffed animal they’ve acquired over the years.
Some collections are clearly better than others. And if you child wants to collect every stuffed animal he or she can get her hands on, maybe they need learn that quality is better than quantity, and having 25 monkey stuffed animals might not make your collection stand out too much.
More isn’t necessarily better – The only thing unique about having a stuffed animal collection of over 100 is the size. What do you do with all of them? How many are the same stuffed animal, or at least the same animal? Having a variety of stuffed animals will make your collection stand out more. Try and get rid of animals you have duplicates of or ones that are the same animal.
Movie and TV Characters – In every collection, it’s always a good idea to have a stuffed animal of your child’s favorite Disney movie character or TV character. Adding a Simba or Sponge Bob Square Pants to the collection will show a pop culture side to your child and even how they become a fan of a movie or character at an early age. Plus, some of these stuffed animals can turn into collectables or even valuables as time goes on.
Show your variety – They don’t have to be just all stuffed animals. Beanie Babies, Care Bears and other unique designed or different style of stuffed animals, like The Zoo Factory’s personal stuffed animals, will certainly add a creative wrinkle that even parents can appreciate. This goes along with animals too. Unless you’re dealing with just valuable Steiff Bears, show your variety by having, lions, snakes, horses, movie characters and even the stuffable animals you create to make your collection stand out more than having 25 stuffed animal dogs.
These are three ways to help improve or make your collection more unique.
