Fragile Earth Stuffed Animals
Interests: Fragile Earth Stuffed Animals (www.feplush.com) is an online retail store specializing in plush stuffed animals. Owners, sisters Helen & Mary Beth, are self-proclaimed stuffed animals aficionados, who started Fragile Earth Stuffed Animals to share the items we love with the world. Carrying plush characters from MerryMakers, Yottoy, and Crocodile Creek allows us to indulge in our love and awe of children's literature. We found the representatives from Jellycat by accident one day at a trade show and fell for the London based company's products immediately. We even adopted one of their animals, the Pudding Hedgehog, Rupert, as the face of our company. That same day, we discovered Unipak which has many wonderful styles of plush stuffed animals (Plumpees, Ooleys, Fairy Bears). Gund is the latest product line we've added and we are thrilled to introduce some of the bears we keep very near & dear to our hearts (Schlepp, I'm talking to you!) and Gund's wonderful line of Sesame Street plush stuffed animals. All our products are shipped & packaged from our warehouse in New Jersey by Fragile Earth Stuffed Animal representatives. We love to hear from our customers and can be reached a myriad of ways. You can find us on Twitter (twitter.com/ruperthedgehog) and on Facebook (facebook.com/feplush). Or if you prefer to rock it old school, our email addresses are helenfeplush@gamil.com,marybethfeplush@gmail.com, or (are you noticing a trend here?) rupertfeplush@gmail.com. AND, if you'd like to talk to a live person (or hedgehog), our phone number is 732-759-0016. If we aren't free to take the call, please just leave a message, and one of us will get back to you as quickly as we can. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our store. We look forward to working with you now and in the future.

Remember the Saga of the Booda Wing A Ball? Well, it would appear that even with a new Wing-A-Ball we are still horribly uncoordinated. Last night we were out playing with Spike and Dru and there was a moment where I almost threw the Wing-A-Ball on the roof of the... Continue reading

This is the Booda Wing-A-Ball Dog Toy and it is Drusilla's favorite toy. We have the purple and yellow one. If we would accomodate her, she would play fetch with it all day. Spike loves it too but he gets bored/tired/apathetic and will run a couple of times with Dru... Continue reading
