Plush Are Great Learning Toys

"Research shows that those children who play with plush toys regularly are able to express themselves quite emphatically and are calmer during stressful situations." 
Since Jude has too many plush for me to count, according to this statement, I believe he's going to be the calmest kid on his block! Emphatic too, as Jude emphatically explains to his newest plush, Curious George, what the house rules are, and that Luvie, is never to be messed with!  Although Jude didn't use those exact words, I do believe he finished his little talk with, "I think we both understand each other now!" 
Hugs and Loves, 
Bubbie and Jude
P.S.  Who were some of your grandkids'/kids' favorite plush characters?

  1. My granddaughter likes stuffed animals that look like real animals. I like buying those book/plush combos at Kohl's, part of the Kohl's Cares program. They cost only $5 per piece, and some of the money goes to charity.

    It makes sense that kids who have a lot of plush toys can express themselves because they spend a lot of time talking to their plushies!
