Babies bring so much joy to our lives. When someone you know is pregnant or has recently given birth to a bundle of joy, it is almost human instinct to want to spoil that new precious little one. The challenge often comes in finding the perfect gift. You want to find something that mom, dad, and baby will enjoy while also choosing something unique and thoughtful. Organic stuffed animals from Estella most definitely satisfy all of these criteria. You’re sure to bring a smile to the baby’s face as well as the face of his or her parents when you choose to gift them one of the unique stuffed animals offered by Estella.
Stuffed Animals Are a Great Gift for Babies
There are so many reasons why stuffed animals are an ideal choice when selecting a gift for a baby. First, they are toys that babies can enjoy both now and later. No matter a baby’s age, he or she will be able to enjoy the stuffed animal you purchase.
Very young babies can receive visual stimulation as they watch you or their parents moving or shaking a stuffed animal in front of them. They can also begin to associate animal sounds with a particular animal if the adult moving the toy makes the corresponding sound for the baby.
As the baby gets older and starts to learn how to grab objects, they can experiment with moving and manipulating the stuffed animal around on their own. Since Estella’s stuffed animals are small, they are the perfect size for babies to practice their grips and to develop their fine motor skills.
A stuffed baby toy, such as a shark stuffed animal, will continue to bring joy to a little one as they move from the baby stage to the toddler stage. They’ll be able to start engaging in pretend play using your thoughtful gift. A kid may decide to make a habitat for a stuffed animal, to give it “checkups” at the vet, or to create a delicious meal for the animal to enjoy. The possibilities are endless, and imaginative children are certain to develop new ways to play with their stuffed bunny rabbit, stuffed alpaca toy, or stuffed ladybug than we could never even dream of.
What Stuffed Animals Are Offered by Estella?
When you visit the Stuffed Toys section on our website, you’ll be amazed at all the original and creative options waiting for you. Estella offers a mix of beloved stuffed animals as well as some other novel masterpieces. Each toy is hand-knitted in Peru and features a soft, 100% organic cotton exterior. They can all be washed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle and placed flat to dry.
If you’re looking for an animal toy for the little one on your list, one option for you to consider is the adorable lion stuffed animal. This king of the jungle is more cuddly than ferocious. He has a yellow body complete with a tufted mane and tale.
Duunn dunnn…duuuuunnn duun…..duuuuunnnnn dun dun dun dun dun dun dunnnnn dunnn! Be on the lookout for the organic stuffed shark from Estella. This soft and friendly shark is gray with the signature shark fin on top. His mouth is open, showing his teeth, even though he looks readier to give baby a big kiss rather than a bite.
Hooooo do you know that loves owls? They’re sure to love being gifted Estella’s owl toy. This light tan owl is all tuckered out after a long night flying. He has his eyes closed so he can catch some zzzzzzs. The owl has gray detail work to show his feathers, beak, and feet.
Real alpacas have super-soft fur. Our stuffed alpaca is so soft that it may have people thinking it’s the real deal. This friendly stuffed animal has a rainbow blanket over his back and a few strands of colorful hair on his head. He looks like the perfect companion for a nice snuggle session.
Ladybugs aren’t actually bugs; they’re beetles, or in the case of this cute toy, they’re a stuffed animal. No ladybug is complete without its red shell and black dots, and our friendly ladybug toy is no exception. We’ve also written “love bug” on the underside of his belly to help him share the love with his new companion. Babies and toddlers will love this ladybug’s warm and welcoming smile.
In addition to all of the cute and cuddly stuffed animals, Estella also offers a collection of other fun stuffed creations. You can choose from a smiling avocado toy, a classic yellow taxicab, a red NYC apple, a happy cactus, a friendly banana, a stuffed peanut or a stuffed red airplane.
How to Select the Right Stuffed Animal
Estella has so many cute and unique options, so how are you supposed to pick one to gift to the little prince or princess on your list? First, you can think about what you know about the baby’s parents to help you select something. Have they traveled anywhere they may have seen some real animals that you could purchase a stuffed version of? For example, if they have recently been on a safari where they saw lions, gifting their son or daughter with a stuffed lion may bring back some happy memories of the trip.
If the stuffed animal will only be part of your gift, you could try to coordinate it with the other items you’re giving to the baby. The baby shark stuffed animal would be the perfect complement to this octopus organic baby security blanket, and the stuffed owl paired with this moon cotton baby blanket would make a lovely gift together.
Finally, when trying to decide on the perfect stuffed animal, you can always pick an animal that has special meaning to you. This way, you’re gifting the little one something that they’ll always associate with you. When you get to visit, you can share why you love the animal you selected to help the baby learn more about you and the animal. This can lead to a very special bond between you and the baby as he or she grows up.
