My 3 boys love Mr. Duck who they took home from a visit with my grand children. I put Mr. Duck in the washer & dryer when he gets dirty........like magic he comes out like brand new. It's just to bad it's not that easy to pop Niko, Andy and Charlie in the washer & dryer when they get dirty! If you have some large plush just sitting around your home taking up space, why not think about who you know with pets who might enjoy them or research local rescue groups or shelters who are always looking for donations of blankets & pillows for their rescues.
