Mini Uncle Rich!

“My niece loves her Uncle and I don’t see her often,
whenever we call I’m the first person she wants
to hear. I thought a stuffed uncle would be the
perfect gift for her!” –Rich E.

Flat Stanley Buddies for Christmas!

flatstanleyforpost

Looking for creative Christmas stocking stuffers for the kids?

Our IAASA friends Treci and Tina shared how they plan to make the family’s Christmas stocking super special! While on vacation this Summer the kids made their own “Flat Stanleys” from the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown and took photos with them while sightseeing. Tina thought it would be a great idea to upload each doll the kids created to our DIY Buddy template and make them into stuffed animals for Christmas.

We love creative fans! Thanks for sharing!

Anthony’s Groomsmen Gifts!

buddy blog photosAnthony

“First thing is first, the stuffed animals are fantastic. In fact, I brought the one that looks like me to work and everyone raved about it. Some of my co-workers went to the website as soon as they saw mine and were dreaming of possibilities.

I know also you’ve been asking about a story, well…here it is. I find myself always on these oddball shopping websites. For this particular instance I was on a website called ThisiswhyImBroke.com They have a bunch of really weird, un-needed, super expensive things. Around the same time I got engaged and I was thinking on potential groomsmen gifts. I was really tired on the same gifts being recycled over and over and I wanted to add a personal touch to this. So I stumbled across your website through Thisiswhyimbroke and fell in love. The personal touch to this isn’t so much that it’s a pillow version of the wedding party but that I am a pro wrestling fan and I remember growing up they had these things called “Wrestling Buddies”. There was Hulk Hogan, Macho Man, The Million Dollar Man…so here was an opportunity to make our own wrestling buddies. And yes, as you can tell the party is comprised with mostly fans of sports entertainment.

The groomsmen gifts were a huge hit.  We had them all displayed at the wedding and a lot of people came up to me and said they were the coolest and best groomsmen gift they have ever seen. My wife is even jealous (which by the way I may have to put in a new order so she can have her own). Wedding photos below! Thanks again!”

Mini Wrestling Team

JenniferBarkulis

 

Helped create priceless and fun memories for me and my family. My husband inappropriately refers to our five buddies as his, “Midget wrestling team,” and uses it as his background picture on his Facebook page. People comment all the time that they love them and want to know where we got them from. Thank you!

Mini Alfred!

What made you choose iamastuffedanimal.com?

“I was considering personalized gifts at the time, although, I did not have a specific
website or company in mind besides flowers. I saw an advertisement in PEOPLE
magazine for IAASA and decided to try it. Thanks! I got the reaction that I wanted
which is priceless.”

Arnold is Here!

About 2 weeks ago our friends on Reddit.com sent a photo album of our celebrity Buddies
to the front page! It was fun answering all their questions, but the most popular comment
(as voted by them) was a request for an Arnold Schwarzenegger Buddy.
So here you go Reddit–you asked for it, you got it!

Little Mikey, PI

SandraChamplain

“This was a gift for private investigator Michael A. Coller and now “Little Mikey” travels with him wherever he goes. It is the best present I have ever given to anyone. Shipping and packaging was great too, very sturdy. Giving this gift was so much fun to me. I looked at it quite often and kept imagining Michael’s face when he saw his buddy for the first time. It really is the most special, creative gift ever. I’m delighted I found your company!”

Al Away from Home

I just wanted to say thanks for your help with my order.
I was able to get my doll out to my wife in Afghanistan
for New Years and she totally loved it. It wouldn’t have
been possible without your help.
I hope you had a great holiday season. –Al S.
