Thousands of parents across the world face the ‘lovey’ dilemma, where toddlers become so attached to one particular blanket or stuffed toy that their world seemingly ends when that toy is lost or needs to be washed. I managed to, somehow, escape this whole ordeal with my nine-year-old daughter, but my toddler son has more than made up for it! My family has actually nicknamed him ‘Linus’, from Charlie Brown, because he always has a blanket or stuffed animal with him – sometimes both!
We recently were introduced to Bommerscheim Buddies – a unique, nostalgic cuddle toy that kids love. While their cool retro look makes them adorable for kids, parents also love them because of the unique removable cover makes washing a snap! Plus they’re Made in America and they’re affordable ($19.99 retail).
The Bommerscheim Buddie has helped with so many of our ‘lovey’ issues, I can’t help but recommend them to every new parent I know. First, I don’t run into that problem where he loses the buddy and has week-long melt-downs until we can sneak in a replacement (usually from ebay, because toddlers never become attached to something easy to find). These little creatures are easy to order, quick to ship, and cost-friendly enough to order back-ups from the get go!
Second, my little tyke no longer has to sit in front of the dryer and wait for his friend to finish washing and drying – the Bommerscheim Buddie has an easily removable cover, and you can even purchase extra covers in different patterns! We have the teal cover and the monkey cover, and my son loves it when he wakes up to see his Buddie is suddenly covered in monkeys!
I plan to give Bommerscheim Buddies as baby shower and first birthday gifts, and they would make great Christmas presents for little ones!
