“I look at other people’s lives, and some people feel like they’re too old to play with toys. But I still go through the toy section at the store, ’cause there were toys that I wanted when I was little that I couldn’t have. So I still get them.” – Kevin Gates
History of Plush Animal Lover’s Day
The history and origin of the Plush Animal Lover’s Day are anonymous. There was a mention by an urban legend that the Teddy Bear, one of the worlds most loved plush animal pets, was invented after the American President Theodore Roosevelt who refused to shoot a baby bear on a hunting trip. He also mentioned that the celebration of this Day first came about after Royal Selangora, a collectibles dealer had come up with the idea of a Teddy Bears Picnic Day during the late eighties. Soon other stuffed toys became jealous that Teddy Bears have got their celebration and demanded for a special day all of their own. Thus, Teddy Bears Picnic Day has replaced with Plush Animal Lovers Day soon after.
A plush animal is a toy usually sewn from a textile, and stuffed with a soft material. It is otherwise known as plush toys, plushies, stuffed animals, soft toys or cuddly toys. The stuffing materials commonly used are synthetic fiber batting, cotton, straw, wood wool, plastic pellets or beans. German Steiff company was the first commercial concern to create stuffed toys in 1880. Stuffed toys are manufactured in different forms, and often they resemble the animals, cartoon characters, legendary creatures, or inanimate objects.
