Stuffed Animal Collection


JAG18

203 views

I don't know how anyone would know this, but I adore and collect stuffed animals and have for as long as I can remember.

Stuffed Animal Collection 1

Might as well start with the OGs.  Left-to-right: Gram Paul "Uncle Grandpa" Penguin, everyone's favorite old man who's gotten up in years and now needs a wheelchair.   His son Fat Penguin (named long ago in a different time and place) who's probably the favorite animal I own.  He's got a wife and five kids, but we don't need to talk about them right now.  Glacier the walking ticking time bomb who likes to throw is little brother.  Said little brother Iceberg who's a kleptomaniac and who only has one foot, but everyone swears he lost before his brother threw him.  And finally their Italian cousin Gelato who's catchphrase is, "You guys are mean!"  He gets to say it a lot around this lot.

Stuffed Animal Collection 2

A small sample of all my bears, the largest species in my collection.  Rapid fire family left-to-right:

Germania Kirk: got his name from when me and my sister played "Star Trek", but afterwards we couldn't stop calling him Kirk.  Is a preacher and married to...

Maple: The Canadian bear.

Dimples: their son who was the first bear baby in the world and is now a doctor.  Everyone used to call him baby boy because he was the first.

Erin Erwin: the Irish ice cream man.

Millennium: Erin's wife and the undisputed best chef in the land.

Nikki: their daughter and now married to Dimples, hence...

Baby Boy: Dimples and Nikki's son who has his dad's old nickname.  His catchphrase is "Ta da", which he is also sometimes called.

Not shown are the two Erwin family boys, Cuddly and Winnie.  They moved away awhile ago and are living their best single life with their friend Curly.

Spangle and Brittany: I think I forgot their last name.  Spangle used to be a superhero (Spangle Boy!), but now I think he just sits in his pajamas all day.

Caramel: their third kid and former cheerleader.  Somehow fell in life with...

Sweeter: a gingerbread man and baker who can never match Millennium.

Lindy "Lucky Lindy": their daughter who's actually a clone of her mother because you know bears and cookies can't.  Anyway, she's a bit of a trouble maker.

Stuffed Animal Collection 3

For whatever reason, most of my and my sisters' stuffed animal collections consisted of bears and penguin to the point that are few other animals were given the kind of offensive term "nonie" (NON-ee).  Either way, the nonies' lot has improved over the years and Punxsutawney Phil has been the mayor for eight years or more.  His chief advisor is his cousin Phil (the one without the hat) and together they wisely govern the town's treasury (the chests).  The big monkey is their bodyguard Lazlo Khan and his little monkey son Bongo.  The hedgehog is Lothario (that means "the lover") advisor/jester.  The green thing is a recent gift from my sister that I don't know what to do with so I let him hang in the executive suite. 
Also, Meltdown isn't there to hold the flag for them or anything he's just also on my desk and photobombed them.

Stuffed Animal Collection 4

More recent additions now that I love referencing things.  Left-to-right (back row), Pabu the red panda, Greywind the dire wolf, Bosco the black bear, Gojira the spinosaurus, and 51 the alien.  (Front row) Bruce the shark, Lottie the axolotl and her son Verde. 

I've just realized that my love for writing might have started with the stories and backgrounds I created around all these animals.  Either way, this is a small sample of my collection, I probably have a hundred more, but what I really want to do is create some kind of archive of all of them with their names and histories to make sure I'll never forget.  Will I find time?  No idea, but this is a start I guess.

Good collection. I was definitely big into stuffed animals as a very young kid before I got into Lego.

Thanks.  Your comment got me wondering why my lego and stuffed animal hobbies never clashed as a kid and I'm guessing it's because back then I mostly got animals from yard/garage sales (and still found some good stuff).  I'm pretty sure I've only found Bionicle sets/pieces at exactly one sale I went to.

Oh my goodness, this is the adorable content BZP blogs were made for❤️. Their storylines are hilarious and sweet, thanks for sharing!!! Like a Mr.

Roger’s Neighborhood vibe content. What’s so funny to me about this is the fact that I now own clones of your plush phamily/phriends- Lots of the Beanie baby ones-definetly the groundhogs and hedgehog-thanks to inheritance of my hoarder grandmother’s

collection…which I’m now dragging out for greeting card holiday/ seasonal decor (senior citizen/prescool style 😂)These cloned ones are now official BZP brand member plushies to me, haha!

(Also happy dance to see an Axolotl in the array, yay 💗)

Thank you!  Really cool that you've acquired many of the same ones especially Mr. Atonomi (yes I know it's spelled Punxsutawney, but I can't even spell it now without googling it so he's Mr. Atonomi). 

Axolotls for the win.

Funnily enough, I think I might've had the two penguins on the left as a kid, or at least ones that looked very similar.  Nice collection!

That's actually really cool because those two are like long lost heirlooms or something.  I've tried searching for them online (and I know most stuffed animals aren't like Beanie Babies with entire websites dedicated to tracking them), but I can't find anything about "The Windsor Collection Exclusively at Sears".
