  • If giving them to a young child, do not leave unsupervised. If you want me to create a Plush toy specifically for a young child let me know in your order that way we can discuss the materials to be used for the order.
  • Plushies are not to be washed in a washing machine or put in a dryer! If dirty spot-clean with a damp cloth or some soap detergent and let it air dry. You can read more about it in the Blog.
