Soft & Cuddly Creepy CrawlersYou could go find the actual critters under the Antarctic ice, in space or eating rotten veggies in your garden, or you could just get our nice plush versions. Our cuddly bug collection includes: the fuzzy roly poly, called the pill bug, woodlouse and worse, that inhabits damp spots in your garden, but ours is 7” long in two-tone blue with a happy smile, perky ears and a tripartite tail; and the furry tardigrade, a fluffy version of a thing that’s normally darn-near microscopic, called a water-bear or moss piglet, that’s a bug relative--a crustacean that you don’t want in your bed. Our version is 9“ x 5” in powder blue plush, and it looks more like a six-legged furry hamster. These toys are considerably more pleasant than the real things, which your mother wouldn’t let you keep anyway. Plus they’re washable!
