My Review of the Plaid Squirrel Fuzzyheads

Plaid Squirrel Fuzzyheads

I’m the father of two beautiful twins, both a boy and a girl. They recently turned three years old and have started to form their own opinions about what they like and dislike. You’d think that since both children are the same age, they’d have similar interests, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. For example, my daughter is very into dinosaurs and monsters right now while my son can’t stand them. He’s more a fan of superheroes and animals. They’ve been like this all their life. I never would have thought the two of them would like the same toy, but that’s exactly what happened when they received two Plaid Squirrel fuzzyheads for their birthday.

The fuzzyheads are a cross between a doll and a pillow. The company, Plaid Squirrel, makes a lot of offbeat toys, but they must be doing something right because both my children fell in love with them. The fuzzyheads get their name because of the fuzzy hair they have on top of their cylinder-shaped body. There are dozens of fuzzyheads to collect, but my son has the has the orange and black doll named L’Range while my daughter has the green and purple doll called Lime Larry.

The character pillows are extremely soft and almost silk like. I’m not sure what the exact fabric is, but it has stayed soft and cuddly through several washings so far. That, plus the goofy design of the pillow, has made the toy very appealing to my children.

The pillow wouldn’t be very doll like without a face, which is why eyes, eyebrows, and a goofy grin has been embroidered on. This means that there are no small parts to choke on.

Since the fuzzyhead pillows are cylinder shaped, they’re also great for car rides. I don’t know about other children, but nothing puts mine to sleep faster than a trip in the car. Unfortunately, car seats aren’t designed for sleeping children and their heads use to always plop forward or to the side. It made my neck hurt just looking at them, but the fuzzyhead dolls have solved that. The kids love to take them in the car because it keeps them entertained as I drive, but this also means that the pillow is positioned next to their head when they doze off. The support of the pillow means that they can sleep comfortably without having to worry about their head slumping over.

We’ve only had the fuzzyheads for a few months, so I can’t say how well they hold up long-term. What I can say is that both my children play with their dolls constantly and take them everywhere. The pillows have held up perfectly fine so far and show no signs of wearing down anytime soon.
