I wish to buy an excellent soft toy

For my boy's 2nd birthday.

I like the Jellycat toys but there's sooooo many my brain has gone furry.
I like the quirky ones best.

Any favourites you'd like to recommend?

This stegosaurus is very cute

My first thought was the Jellycat octopus too. It's even nicer in real life.

All the Ocean Life Jellycat looks adorable. Iโ€™m smitten with the squid.

Oh I forgot - if you can afford it, have a look at Cuddle & Kind. I desperately want some of them (for the kids, honest)

We've got a couple of dinosaurs from here and they are lovely.

Skittlesandbeer · 28/06/2019 16:36

Ooooo have you seen the lobster soft toy from Jelli? Very unusual, but cuddleable!

Another vote for the Jellycat octopus, he's just so comically large and beautifully tactile. Ours is called David. (Eight is a lot of legs)

If you like quirky what about a Manhattan lanky cat? I got one for DS first birthday because he was obsessed with cats. I was down between a jellycat one and these, but went with the lanky cat because it's just so quirky looking.

TheWeatherGirl1 · 28/06/2019 17:18

We have a lanky cat!

There's some excellent suggestions here, I love the dinosaurs and the Cuddle and Kind dolls are gorgeous/out of my league.

I may just bite the bullet and buy the octopus, at least then if he doesn't want it I'll have it.

Thanks again

I really want a Swellegant Lancelot Lion from Jellycat

AWhistlingWoman · 28/06/2019 17:59

Not that it needs another vote but the Jellycat octopus is super cute! I bought the very smallest one for a daughter's friend, it was a hit!
Close Jelly runners up - starfish, whale, sushi and any of the dragons!
I also love the Moulin Roty toys.

This one made me squeeeeee

Plus the lemon, mince pie, newt and red ant.

The frog prince!

I came on just to say the octopus! I got the small one from DH for Christmas. He's very lovely.

Davros · 28/06/2019 19:37

sinkgirl those are fabulous, what talent

My two year old loves his jelly at bashful monkey and bat, both medium size and perfect for cuddling

TheCraicDealer · 28/06/2019 19:46

I got the bashful dragon from Jellycat for my DNephew when he was born- DNeice has stolen him and carries him around, but occasionally he manages to get him back. The dragon is nn'ed Smokey Grin

Odell the octopus is a firm favourite with my 15 month old daughter his tentacles and delightfully springy ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ™

I really love my Flatout Bear. They make the best pillows.

reefedsail · 28/06/2019 19:55

@magneticmumbles OMG that shrimp!

I'm going to get him for DS's birthday.

SirVixofVixHall · 28/06/2019 19:58

The octopus or the big mammoth. My best friend bought dd the mammoth for her birthday and he is just lovely. Even I hug him occasionally...

DistantVworp · 28/06/2019 20:07

DS10 and DD6 have a hippo and a giraffe from here:

Both had since v young and both still cuddle up to them at night

TheWeatherGirl1 · 29/06/2019 07:34

I bought a medium octopus AND the lovely chameleon.

I've really enjoyed looking at all your suggestions and now have a ridiculously long future toy list!

The chameleon is our fav one

We got a Jellycat flamingo on Wednesday!
