I can't resist the gaze of this adorable handmade plushie. I am hoping that crafters Heather and Annette will make more for their store Babyleila. You can shop for modern plushies, children's clothing and accessories at their online store that is part of Etsy-- Momathon's favorite online store for all things handmade. You can read more about their handmade clothing and accessories for modern kids on their blog Leila & Ben.
This blue, olive, brown and cream plushie is made with cotton canvas. He (or she) is filled with high-loft hypo-allergenic polyfill. I love the fact he is made without buttons or other choking hazards to make him safe for babies. The little pocket in his belly can hold a binkie or other treasures for your child. The plushie is 11" tall and 8.5" wide. ($18.00)
