  • How do I clean my furry friend or doll?

    If your furry friend or doll needs cleaning, simply wipe with wet cloth or surface wash with Bear Stuff Cleaner® and then air dry.

    Our animals should not be washed in the washing machine or submersed in water, because the stuffing can expand when soaked, causing the animal's seams to pop open. In addition, if your furry friend has a sound box, the sound would most likely become damaged if submersed in water.

    If you do not wish to purchase the Bear Stuff Cleaner, we suggest using a mild soap and washcloth to surface clean the animal, and then let it air dry.
