Gund is known for Snuffles the teddy bear and other cuddlies that people have grown up with and love. Their design is classic, recognizable, and known to be passed down from generation to generation. They have some bright, playful dinosaurs that are durable for long-term play, and the most adorable animal line called Cozys (like the bunny in the picture below).
While a lot of the their stuffed bears and animals are home grown, they also license some of the world’s most well known brands such as Pusheen, Totoro, Gudetama and Hello Kitty. One of my favorite things was the Totoro backpack (it’s really cute, I’d know a lot of people who’d love it!), but I think the biggest reveal was Gund‘s collaboration with Sanrio and the US Olympic committee for Hello Kitty goodies. You’ll find Kitty wearing outfits that team USA is known to compete in: gymnastics, track & field and swimming.
It’s Pusheen‘s 10th anniversary! Gund is celebrating with a special birthday doll adorned with a colorful cake and matching hat.
