Birthday Bash Sponsor Spotlight: ElJay Plushie (Stuffed Unicorn) *Review*

Super duper, with a strawberry on top, excited to introduce you to this Etsy shop! ElJay Plushie...the cutest animal creations, sewn to perfection! I instantly fell in love with the Dolphin...but I knew Destiny would love the Unicorn, so I contacted for a possible review. The owner, Leah, said YES! Not only did she say yes to a review, but she also said yes to a giveaway!!! (I will give you the details on that later in my review)

My Review
I received a customized unicorn for review. I requested pink and blue colors, Destiny's favorites and this is what I received.
ElJay Plushie
With the perfect mix of pinks and blue(and a touch of yellow), a cotton candy theme was created. A coordinating cupcake applique was applied on it's hip. The unicorn was stuffed generously and is able to stand on it's own. It is the perfect huggable size and is so loved by all of our family. These sweet creatures are made with a super soft fleece material and they are about 10" tall and about 9" from nose to tail. Their "hair" is made of a piece of fleece that is cut into nice strips. Destiny loves to braid her tail.
ElJay Plushie has created a one of a kind stuffed unicorn for my little girl and I am ever so grateful.
 Here is a picture of Destiny, when she first met her new friend. Look at all those little hand reaching out to touch the unicorn...they all were fascinated!

I can tell Leah puts a lot of love put into her creations. Destiny's new friend is sewn together so well and is proportioned beautifully.The underside and feet are made with striped with stars material. So adorable and creative!!
ElJay Plushie also makes custom stuffed monkeys, dolphins, horses, alligators, elephants and so much more!! You just have to check them out for yourself! I highly encourage you to visit her Etsy shop...you will fall in love with her stuffed animals!

  3. This is so flipping cute! I am feeling a little guilty that I always seem to want to win things for my daughter, and my poor sons get left out, haha, but honestly I would love to win one of these for her. Or any of their plushies. So creative and cute!

  4. My daughter is finally into her stuffed animals. Sure took long enough; I was always crazy about mine as a little girl! Makes me wish I could sew. Love seeing people doing what they love for a living. You are obviously very talented. :-)

  9. I love the cute, custom colors and appliques that are used. I think the elephant is my favorite. It has a vintage feel. Pink elephants always remind me of Dumbo, which was one of my favorite movies as a small kid. :)
