What It Is

FuzzyHeads is a new line of soft toys that are part pillow and part stuffed toy. They come in three sizes: the nine-inch Lil' Fuzzys, 16-inch Fuzzys, and 24-inch Big Fuzzys. There are a variety of different FuzzyHeads characters, and each one comes with his or her own personal bio. Characters include Pink Penny, the fashionista of the crew, and J. Aldaway, who dreams of being a professional basketball player. FuzzyHeads are made of a high-quality plush with a soft furry top.

Is It Fun?

FuzzyHeads are super soft and would make great cuddle companions for boys and girls. The toys' bright eyes and warm smiles are simple in design, and the tubular shape is ideal for snuggling whether at home or on the go.

Who It’s For

FuzzyHeads are for ages birth and up. However, it's not recommended that you put toys in the crib with babies under the age of 6 months.

What To Be Aware Of

FuzzyHeads are machine-washable. It's recommended that you wash them in cold water and tumble dry on low. Read more

FuzzyHeads: Perfect Pillows for Kids and Travel!

We’re going to be taking a long road trip for our summer vacation. I’m so excited to get to our destination, but I’m not looking forward to those long hours in the car. With two ten-year-olds along for the ride, I know I’m going to hear a lot of “Are we there yet?” “When can we stop?” and “My brother’s bothering me!” One way to alleviate the whining in the back seat is to make sure that the kids are as comfortable as possible. Fortunately, I found out about FuzzyHeads! Read more from Susan Heim, parenting author and editor for "Chicken Soup for the Soul"

Kids and Baby Design Ideas - My Review of the FuzzyHeads 

I’m the father of two beautiful twins, both a boy and a girl. They recently turned three years old and have started to form their own opinions about what they like and dislike. You’d think that since both children are the same age, they’d have similar interests, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. . Read more
