The Science of Promotional Plushies
I lied. There is no science. Only fuzziness!
The fact is that there is no science behind the creation of a perfect promotional plushie, only fuzziness and affection. As a plushie connoisseur since the day I was born, I can attest to the extraordinary bond that exists between a client and a cherished stuffed animal!
So, what distinguishes a stuffy? Let's go into the world of plush!
The History Behind the Stuff(ing)
Who made the Teddy Bear?
Morris Michtom, a toy store owner and inventor, installs two plush bears in his shop window on February 15, 1903, selling them as Teddy bears. Michtom had already requested permission from President Theodore Roosevelt to use his moniker, Teddy. Source: History.com
As a result, the teddy bear was born.
Teddy bears have since become the most popular stuffed animal on the market, followed by plush dogs and cats. However, any toy store will have everything from a crocodile to a parrot!
Why Promotional Plushies?
Promotional plushies (I have many from various trade exhibitions and events) are a wonderful way to remember a brand. What's nice about promotional plushies is that they appeal to a wide range of people! Stuffed animals are also versatile and adaptable to any sector. Here are a couple of examples:
Animal Parks and Aquariums
Airports and Visitor Information Centers
Amusement Parks and National Parks
Daycares and Schools
Customization and Branding
One of the most common methods for your consumers to dress up a promotional plushie is with a customisable shirt, which is ideal for branding opportunities. Other options to mark promotional plush include miniature caps, bandanas, and embroidery on the soft itself. Because stuffies come in a variety of forms, sizes, and colors, your customer may create a promotional plush that is truly theirs!
Stuffed animals aren't just for kids anymore! When presented with a plushie, adults are reminded of their childhood and the emotional protection that plushies provide. Stuffed animals are referred to be "comfort objects" because they allow us to take that sensation of comfort with us as we grow from childhood to maturity. Stuffies, like a warm blanket, allow us to calm down and destress. Stuffed animals have been demonstrated in studies to help with mental health issues.
Plushies With a Purpose
While stuffed animals are excellent corporate gifts, they can also have a positive impact on the community. They are the ideal companion for fundraising or raising awareness. They can also be presented as comfort presents to hospital patients, those going through emotional and unpleasant events at police stations, or those mourning a loss. A plush animal can even assist to alleviate loneliness and create a sense of belonging.
Plushies are not only wonderful promotional products for increasing your customer's awareness, but they may also give an emotional connection that other promotional items cannot deliver. When your clients are seeking for a one-of-a-kind and meaningful giveaway, send them promotional plushies or check out some of our other top popular promotions.
