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 Tuesday, December 11, 2018

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

There are only 14 days left until Christmas--and we are not even done receiving new shipments of "stuff" for you!
We are expecting some cute NEW Poniesto add to our Stable and a fancy NEW Mermaid for our Ocean Habitat to arrive from First and Main as soon as later today! And it wouldn't be Christmas for us without an infusion of gorgeous plush (DogsCats, more PoniesOwls and Dragons, among additional things) now on its way from Douglas Cuddle Toy (this shipment is coming from New Hampshire, so we expect it about middle of next week--but still in time for Christmas!) We will start showing pictures of the NEW "Stuff" recently arrived from Wild Republic, including some awesome NEW Sea Life, in anther day or so, once we've shown you all the new Ganz "Stuff"!

Meanwhile, we just took down our Sale Table and are in the process of reconfiguring it so we can bring you a fun FREE series of "activities" (although you won't really have to do anything but show up if you want to!) that we will preview with a special version just for Christmas this coming weekend! (Parents with school-age kids with an interest in nature--and especially home-schoolers--watch for details about this--it may be something you can easily incorporate into your children's courses of study...)

Seeing a frosting of snow on our local mountains (we almost forgot how beautiful that is!) has inspired us to "harvest" the ripe red apples from our display window and chase the fall sunflowers away until next year! It's time to get a more wintery scene in there and see if we cannot attract some Ice Faeries and Friends for a holiday visit...
So if you do not immediately see us when you come to visit, give a shout-out--we're likely working on getting that window prepared for them--and we'd love to be "interrupted" to come out for a break to serve you!

Don't forget that besides our ongoing Discounts and Customer Rewards, SALES TAX is ALWAYS INCLUDED in our prices--and we have holiday designs and colors of paper bags and tissue paper for our always-complimentary gift-bag wrapping!

Caden Henderson is again collecting Teddy Bears for the kids stuck in Loma Linda's Children's Hospital over the Christmas holidays--and we get to help!
All of the drop-off sites, including us, have Caden's Collection Boxes so we can accept your donated Teddy Bears any time between now and December 17! Scroll down for all the information, including our offers on some SPECIAL TEDDY BEARS you can purchase from us at seriously reduced prices to put into Caden's Collection Box!

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!

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!

Just in time for your holiday shopping, our little present for you--a NEW Gift with Purchase Customer Reward!

Gorgeous NEW styles of CATS from the Ganz Heritage Collection have begun to arrive...!

OK, OK--you are right--this is NOT a Cat either!

With one or two notable exceptions, this being one of the better ones, plush German Shepherds available right now just come up a little lame. The faces all seem not quite realistically credible for such a majestic dog! We made a point of making room in the Ganz shipment for this well-executed version (the other great ones are made by Bocchetta Plush in Australia--we have one laying style from them in stock..)!

Looks like our Greeter Cheetah is all ready to work on those Elf duties...!

Star Tulip Stuffies is pleased to again support Caden’s Bear Drive with the following SPECIAL OFFERS on Teddy Bears to be added to his collection:

This year we will start by offering a choice between TWO Teddy Bears at
 VERY SPECIAL PRICES as indicated!  

Spencer normally sells for $16-18, including tax, before any of our regular discounts, the best of which would be about $2 off, so usually the lowest regular price for Spencer would be $14-16. HOWEVER, IF you buy him and put him directly into Caden's Collection Box we will charge ONLY $12, including tax.

Bumbley sits on our Teddy Bear shelf at the regular price of $23, incl. tax, best price with our usual discount, $20. It costs you ONLY $16, incl. tax to add a Bumbly to Caden’s Collection Box.

(Spencer or Bumbley is still the regular price if he goes home with you)!

We will deduct an additional $2 from either Spencer’s or Bumbley’s special price if you spend $20 or more on ANYTHING ELSE at the same time in our Shop (we WILL apply any coupon discount to regular-priced "stuff", too)!

We are happy to provide this "incentive" for you to help Caden reach his goal of 250 Teddy Bears for kids at Loma Linda Children's Hospital by Christmas!

We reserve the right to substitute Teddy Bear styles and/or special prices should we run out of either Spencer or Bumbley during this year’s Teddy Bear Drive!   


**VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:**

If you would very much like to donate Spencer and/or Bumbley to Caden's Collection and live too far away or simply cannot get to our Shop for any reason, PLEASE CONTACT US!

We can send you an email invoice for whatever Teddy Bear(s) you choose to donate that you can pay through PayPal from your computer. PayPal accepts your credit card information to apply directly and only to your purchase without us even being able to access it and sends both you and us a receipt record of your transaction. You DO NOT HAVE TO BE A PayPal MEMBER to make a one-time payment; you just "Use as a Guest", following the (EASY) prompts at the link to Paypal our email invoice will include! There is NO SERVICE CHARGE to you to do this, just the cost of the Bear(s)!

A third back-up case of Spencer is on its way from First and Main!

We have AGAIN run out of  Bumbley, but we should be receiving a couple more cases of him today or tomorrow from First and Main!

Caden's Collection Box is beginning to fill--Teddy Bears are beginning to be visible near the top of that box! With several cases of Bumbleys and/or Spencers recently arrived from First and Main your mission, should you decide to accept it, has been to help us to move as many of them as we can keep putting onto that cart into Caden's Box--and you HAVE been! In fact, the Bumbley supply has dwindled significantly--and we did indeed just order more!

THIS is the DISCOUNT COUPON now appearing inside the December issues of the Redlands Coupons Monthly and Highland Coupons Monthly!


Many of these are delivered right to houses in these areas, but if you don't happen to receive one on your doorstep, never fear! We have a stack of them in store, so pick one up when you visit and take advantage of all the cool deals inside!

bocchetta-australiana-4-201.jpg


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!

bocchetta-cats-and-dogs-4-2.jpg


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.

Here are some examples of the amazing array of realistic plush creatures from so many world-wide habitats from Wild Republic!

To find information and (usually adorable) photos of babies of many of these and many more wild animals born in zoos around the planet, wander around this Link:

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
