Shawnimals are the plush creations of Shawn and Jen, the artists behind the Wee Ninja. They’re also “an enigma comprised of felt, stuffing and unabated creative synergy”. Each handmade Shawnimal comes with its own original story, and stickers and buttons if they’re available.
So far, nearly 400 unique Shawnimals have been made, including limited editions and special occasions, which gives them Beanie Baby –esque collectability without the potential market crash. If “strange yet cute artist-made stuffed creatures” sound like your cup of tea, then check out Shawnimals, and see if you can find a new stuffed friend.
