Stuffies are essentially stuffed animals with pockets. This plush toy has been around for several years and has achieved overall positive ratings from consumers. In our evaluation, we found it to be durable and felt about as expected, although it did seem a bit smaller overall than expected based on the advertising. At 12 inches tall, it only stands about as tall as a Barbie doll.
The seven pockets vary in size, with some of them being too small to really serve much purpose. Younger kids like the idea of “secret” pockets, so this is likely to keep their interest more than a standard stuffed animal. You may want to keep an eye on what kids put into the pockets, to make sure they aren’t hiding something like yesterday’s lunch!
You can find Stuffies in some stores, so it may be worth a trip to a local retailer to get a look at them in person before making your final purchase decision.
Perhaps the most similar product was another As Seen on TV plush toy with pockets called Tummy Stuffers. That product has since gone out of production. You can, however, find Tummy Stuffers and dozens of other stuffed animals with pockets at Amazon, with varying levels of consumer satisfaction.
Stuffies is an established stuffed animal with pockets that has amassed relatively high ratings over the past three years. Some of the pockets are too small to be of much use, and the product seems a bit smaller in person that in television advertisements. Overall, however, kids seem to like the “secret pocket” concept, and its cost keeps it competitive enough to make it worth trying.
