These teddy bears are also ideal for kids, because – as luck would have it – youngsters are equally as huggable, adorable, and snuggly. When these two combine, you have the perfect combination of hugs, cuddles, snuggles, and comfort throughout a youngster’s childhood.
Kids who have had teddy bears that they absolutely LOVE for the majority of their youth, are statistically more likely to sleep better, have fewer nightmares, and be more prepared for bedtime. Crazy, I know – but true, and I have hand-picked 3 among the best teddy bears that will likely prove it to you.
My Pillow Pet Large Panda Bear
I actually have this pillow pet and it is absolutely my favorite must-have snuggle-buddy of all time! I named my Po after the Panda in Kung Fu Panda, and he is ultra-soft, snuggly, and perfect for anyone with a love of sleeping soundly on plush comfort.
My pillow pet usually stays in the shape of an unrolled, heavily slept-on pillow – however, for youngsters and those who need something to wrap their arms around at night, these Pandas can roll into a bulky, chunkier stuffed animal with the help of Velcro straps.
Fisher-Price Doodle Bear
Doodle bears have been around since the mid-90s – however, they disappeared, obviously for a makeover, and now they are back with resounding popularity. This one is nicknamed Rose for her lovely, rose-toned color, and kids can scrawl and doodle on her plush body and face with a slew of included washable markers.
The markers dry quickly, so snuggling won’t result in colorful stripes of your youngster’s own – and each doodle bear washes clean in the washing machine.
Gund Philbin 18” Bear
Pictures of Philbin really never do him justice! This adorable teddy bear is fluffy, cuddly, and oh-so-snuggly with plush fur that feels as if you’re running your fingers through velvet. His body is slightly under-stuffed for a leaning, softer look and feel, and his eyes are expressive in pearly black and chocolaty brown.
This teddy bear is a must-have! For washing concerns, Philbin can be machine washed and tumbled dry on a low setting. Or, for the sake of assurance, you can hand-wash and hang-dry for a few hours. Kids will totally love how warm and squishably soft Philbin remains – even after hundreds of washes.
For the spring, summer of 2015 (and likely far beyond) - here is a list of the top teddy bears:
