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 Friday, November 16, 2018

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

Yay! It's Friday! YIKES! We're halfway through November! Double YIKES! Thanksgiving is LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY!!

Is your house "dressed" to greet those Thanksgiving guests--or just to share in the beauty Autumn? We still have a gorgeous selection of FABULOUS Fall Decorative Flags, including some specifically for Thanksgiving! We hate to blow past this time of year too fast; it's one of our best seasons here and while it's probably a good idea to start working on that list of Elf chores for (not that much) "later" this year, we think it's perfectly fine to savor the beautiful colors and mellow temperatures of Autumn while you are at it!


 Besides all of the new styles of Christmas and Everyday Pop-Up Cards just in, a box full of 10 designs of those amazing Swing Cards has just arrived! Santoro, who makes these fabulous 3-D greeting cards that sway in response to the gentlest puff of air or mild jostle, does not do specific holiday styles, but there are several stunning winter-theme ones in this group that could certainly be used for Christmas! Scroll down for an image of today's featured newly received Swing Card!

Chanukkah "Stuff", including a selection of really nice Chanukkah Flags to acknowledge and help celebrate this beautiful tradition and an early taste of Christmas "Stuff" are now appearing on our seasonal display shelves!

The first round of Christmas Decorative Flags has appeared on our Flag Wall!

AND we have the following
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

Caden Henderson will again be collecting Teddy Bears for the kids stuck in Loma Linda's Children's Hospital over the Christmas holidays--and we get to help!
All or most of the drop-off sites, including us, already have Caden's Collection Boxes so we can start accepting your donated Teddy Bears as soon as TODAY! 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!

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!

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)!

Two cases of Spencer are ON THEIR WAY from First and Main and should arrive early next week. You can pre-order Spencer any time, starting now and we will transfer your donated Bear(s) right from the shipping container into Caden's Collection Box as soon as they arrive!

cadens-bear-drive-bumbley-.jpg


We already HAVE Bumbley in stock, so he can be purchased as soon as NOW for Caden's Drive. More are riding along with Spencer, so even if we temporarily run out you can still have us add Bumbley to Caden's Collection Box the moment he arrives with Spencer!

We want to offer any BUSINESS or SERVICE ORGANIZATION who might want to donate to Caden Henderson's Teddy Bear Collection for kids in Loma Linda Children's Hospital at Christmas this year SPECIAL DISCOUNTS on any number of styles (see photos) of bears ordered through us in ONE DOZEN increment quantities. All of the Bears illustrated are 10" tall (not shown to scale), sitting, and range from $18-$23, including tax, before any customer discounts in store. However, the first 3 would be just $10 each per dozen, the next couple, $12 each per dozen and the rest would be $14 each per dozen (we absorb BOTH the SALES TAX and SHIPPING!) business-to-business or organization-to-organization on a PREPAID basis to go into Caden's Box upon arrival. Please contact us directly if you are interested/have questions, etc. (909-798-9313 or startulipstuffies@earthlink.net or FB message).

ALL shown styles are currently in stock at the manufacturer, BUT by mid-November last year this vendor as well as almost all our other potential suppliers were down to only a very few, if any, of almost all kinds of Teddy Bears, so the caveat if you would like to do this and want a choice is to please ACT ASAP!

EMERGENCY UPDATE: Our Supplier has JUST informed us that they are ALREADY getting low on "Dean" and "Willoughby" AND "Regis"--so don't delay if you want to take advantage of this opportunity, please!


where-are-cats-.jpg


You may have noticed a significant decline in recent weeks of available choices in our "Cat House". About 50% of the reason for this, besides their obvious popularity, is that about half a dozen styles of plush Cats were recently discontinued by Gund. 

Never fear! Just in the nick of time, Ganz is stepping in to fill that void--and we have an order including some of their newest styles on the verge of shipping. Almost as many, however, are so new that Ganz does not even expect them to arrive in North America (Ganz is just over the border from New York on the Canada side!) until the end of this month! So between this "delay" and the 3-week travel-time (allowing a week stuck in US Customs being searched for smuggled drugs???!) from Ganz to us, we are being forced to be patient about the arrival of these NEW Plush Cats.

We promise they WILL be worth the wait--especially since well-designed, believably realistic stuffed animal versions of domestic Cats are extremely difficult to find (that "cati-tude" thing is just hard to capture)! We have to admit, though that we  are not typically very patient and can hardly wait for any of them to arrive to help fill in our partially naked shelves--so rest assured that we will be letting you know as soon as they begin to arrive!

Heeeeere's Chanukkah "Stuff"!


Chanukkah beats out Christmas this year by several weeks--starting on the evening of December 2!

Menorahs and additional traditional items can be found in our year-round Judaica Collection.

First look at Christmas "Stuff" is in our seasonal display area!

CHRISTMAS 3-D PopUp Cards are HERE!

swing-card-soccer.jpg


And we just received a box full of additional styles of Swing Cards!

Specific holiday cards are not made by this international company, but we've already shown you several designs in Winter themes that could work VERY well for incredibly impressive Christmas greetings!

In spite of the fact that we know about a ton of our customers participate in one way or another in Soccer, we have NEVER had a Soccer Swing Card--until now! (Part of the reason may be that an earlier version just wasn't quite as cool as this awesome NEW style!). We bet you know at least one Soccer Player (or Soccer Mom or Dad or Coach!) who would love to receive this one!

Meanwhile we will continue to honor our DISCOUNT COUPON found in The October issues!


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:

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
