If you’re looking for an inappropriate (yet funny) gift for a newborn, you could go for a plush bottle of Jaggermesiter. Would the parents be happy if this is becoming their kid’s favorite toy? I’m not sure, but it’s so much funnier than a rabbit or a teddy!

I’m a silly mum desperate to get her daughter to love plush toys so she can play with them! Could she get attached to a slice of bread or even better a toilet paper roll plush? Heidi Kenney from MyPaperCrane is creating funny and unusual plush toys for kids and for adults. Her weirdest creation: tampon plushies. It could make a funny gift, I just have to figure out which of my friend could deserve such a gift!

It looks like that child of mine has to learn to love plush toys so I can finally buy some! I’ve found new ones that are just adorable from Belgium based studio Plush. They say: “Plush is a sparkling new children’s clothing + accessories brand. It’s huggable. It’s cute. It’s raw and somewhat rock’n’roll!” They’re also designing great clothes, if she doesn’t want plush toys I can always buy her one of those nice tee.

I Heart GutsMy daughter does not care for toys and care even less for plush toys, she’s much happier playing with the remote control, my wallet or a spoon. So I don’t have any excuse to buy her a plush toy from I Heart Guts and then keep it for myself… and it is a pity. I particularly love the Kidney Plush: When Urine Love. I just can picture my husband and myself checking before leaving the apartment: “do we have the kidney?” “where did you put the kidney?” “did you put the kidney in the diaper bag?”
