We are the most intriguing biggest little stuffed animal shop in Southern California (also featuring Decorative House and Garden Flags for the home--and NOW also featuring Designer Scarves for your wardrobe)!

Extremely easy access from Interstate 10 in Redlands between San Bernardino and Palm Springs!
(see map on "About Us" page...)

Open 7 days a week! 

Today is Sunday, May 20, 2018

We are OPEN until 5 PM in Suite 101 in the Redlands Plaza at 330 6th Street in Downtown Redlands!

One more day to run outside to try and see jet fighter planes streaking across the sky before they disappear! The Hangar 24 Air Show finishes off late this afternoon, but meanwhile, we'll be listening for an opportunity to watch those awesome pilots and machines perform!

Now that we are seriously into May, Graduations and Patriotic celebrations like Memorial Day and even Independence Day in a couple of months are firmly on the horizon! Those are, of course, in addition to all the Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, etc. that happen to be on the schedule for your late Spring! We would love to contribute to making them all special--come visit us to see how we might help!

Graduation Flags can now be found with the rest of the Graduation "Stuff" in our seasonal area (scroll down for a few examples, available in small and large sizes). Patriotic Flags are also now in store, both in packages 
on our Flag Wall and 
with open ones on our House Flag display rack, with more to come in a few weeks!

Graduation "Stuff" is up on the seasonal shelves. Graduation Plush Critters, classy Graduation Picture Frames and House and Garden size Graduation Decorative Flags can now be found there! Don't forget our brand new collection, too, of 3-D PopUp Graduation Greeting Cards now keeping the many styles for additional occasions company on the Up-With-Paper display right inside our front door! 

If you are looking to dress your home for the season, we have an amazing selection of gorgeous Decorative Flags that could make that an exceedingly easy task for you! (Poles and Brackets for the House Flags and Holders for the Garden-size Flags are also available if you have not yet tried this form of enhancement for your home!) All you have to do to stay up to date for the next season is to change out your Flag(s)--and DONE!

NOTICE--Now available at Star Tulip Stuffies:
You can now have us custom design and assemble your own special Goodie-bags 
to match your party motif for you 
to present each guest at your next event featuring an animal (or fantasy creature) theme! Scroll down for the official announcement with all the details!

Do you have an established or b
udding Naturalist in your family or circle of friends? Should you ever be in need of a gift for said nature-lover, we want to remind you all that, while our plush is cute and huggable, most of it is far more than mere toys! Our realistic and highly detailed stuffed animals come from exactly the same suppliers who help stock the gift shops at Zoos, Museums, Aquaria, National and State Parks and Monuments (except that we have a huge selection all in one place that you might otherwise have to search several such venues to find)! Many are artistically lovely enough to display as home decor as well as to appreciate for their tactile and visual comfort value! If you've never visited our shop, the need for a unique gift that reinforces an interest in and appreciation for Nature (and maybe even serves as a concrete reminder of an awesome family experience visiting any institution 
dedicated to this end
--or even the great outdoors itself) could just be your perfect excuse to come check us out--we promise you will be amazed!

Every once and awhile one of you comments on how much you enjoy our background music here in the shop (it's so lovely we've even had folks notice "our" tunes during a phone conversation and comment or inquire!)--because it is tranquil and soothing! The CD's we almost always play are from a very talented local Piano Tuner, Greg Schultz--who composed and performs all the works on each CD! We are very pleased to tell you that Greg dropped a few of his CDs by the Shop recently, so now you, too, can enjoy his beautiful Nature-inspired compositions! Ask at the check-out counter--they are just $15 each, including tax--and we play them until they just about disintegrate! 

Do remember to check out our gift choices before you do all of your shopping at big-box and department stores with the cookie-cutter selections! We, like all of our Downtown small business colleagues, go out of our way to bring you things you just won't find in the "usual" places! Find unique gifts (holiday and year-long) for the most special friends and family members in your lives by shopping local!


Note: If you saw something on this site a day or more ago and find it is no longer here (or it appears this site has not been updated daily--we occasionally have issues with Earthlink's usually reliable site builder!), check our Facebook address (link above)--there is more "space" there to leave things up longer (and it usually works when the website is not available to us for editing), so we try to do that in case anyone missed something here!

Thank you for allowing us to spend what turned out to be a highly productive day of botany on Wednesday! We are often perfectly happy to find one or two individuals of an unusual or rare California native plant (to add to our "life list") instead of wild vistas of color provided by a huge numbers of flowers from a few common species. In this case it turned out to be more of the color vista sort of a trip, but with much of the color coming from species we would not have expected to see in such massive displays! We're working on images to share soon!

There was a fairly massive wildfire last year in the Chimney Peak Recreation Area south of Kennedy Meadows and north of Highway 178 (Walker Pass that runs past Lake Isabella) and reports of an exceptional wildflower display in that burn recovery area were correct!
Beneath the blackened tree skeletons was an airy "cloud" of lavender bloom "floating" up to about a foot and a half off of the ground about as far as the eye could see! Yellows, as is often the case, were the dominate hues on higher slopes within this burn, but here light to intense pink to blue-purple flowers created this somewhat surprising violet-tinted haze of color! Several species contributed to this beautiful effect--and we will post our attempts to tease out some images with their individual "portraits" in the next few days...!

Patriotic Flags have begun to appear in store--just in time for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July!

Our Graduation PopUp Cards are here!

Any given graduation is once-in-a-lifetime! Why not recognize your favorite graduate with a keepsake card that will show how impressed you are with the achievement--and that will certainly be noticed and remembered!

Even our Greeter Cheetah has decided it's time to think about Graduations!

We are SO excited to have just received our VERY FIRST shipment from Bocchetta Plush direct from Queensland, Australia--complete with customs documents affixed to the boxes! 

Although from Italian origins, now that Bocchetta Plush has been based in Australia for around 15 years, we would expect them to be quite expert at designing and producing plush versions of animals that inhabit their adopted home--and well they do as you can see from the examples we chose, including a few representing some (actual, real) Aussie fauna we had never heard of before! How cool is that!

Equally if not more impressive is the artistry with which the designers at Bocchetta have rendered certain specific breeds of Cats and Dogs, some that are unavailable to us from US vendors! We are pleased to present these initial offerings from both collections! We look forward to adding additional styles in the future!

Why not try our NEW SERVICE for your next event with an animal (real or imagined) motif?

We do ask that you allow us at least 4-6 weeks ahead of your event to work with you for these functional reasons imposed by the space-time continuum of the Universe:

--In almost all cases we will need to special-order the contents of your goodie bags (In the interest of diversity, we seldom if ever keep more than a few pieces of any style of item on hand and almost certainly would not have desirable coordinating gift items already in store.)

--There are a LOT of available choices to mix and match among our many suppliers and you will want time to explore and think about exactly what you want once you see some possibilities!

--We always check stock with our suppliers to be sure they can ship what you select in a timely fashion and to allow you to decide among alternatives, if not.

--It can take up to two weeks for items to arrive once we place an actual order from some of our best vendors, many of whom are on the east coast—and at least a few days for us to assemble your favors.

We have a MUCH nicer display area at our NEW location for Dane's beautiful landscape photography! It's just past our Decorative Flag area, to your right as you come in!

Hansa'sPortraits in Nature”, absolutely beautiful, highly realistic plush animals have returned to Star Tulip Stuffies!!

This is their River Otter—he is NOT taxidermy (better—his gorgeous synthetic fur will not degrade!), but we do half expect him to give a shake and spray water from his wet-looking coat all over!

We have lots more exquisite Hansa pieces in store--come take a look
