Captain Packrat's Plushies!
At one time I had a small collection of plushies, but during a recent move, all but two
of them where lost. : ( I have recently started on rebuilding my collection, and now have
far more then I ever had before. Here is a description of the plushies that I used to
have, and pictures of the one I have now. Family Picture #1 Family Picture #2
Plushies I have now (arranged more or less by age):
- "Teddie Bear". This was my very first plushie; given to me when I was born. I
still have him, and he is still in very good condition. He is a panda/teddy bear, about 16
inches long. He is all white, except for his ears, arms, and the bottom of his feet. When
I was about 2 years old, I named him "Teddie Bear" (cute, huh?). When I was 8, I
swiped one of my baby half-sister's T-shirts and dressed him in it, and he's been wearing
that T-shirt ever since. Picture #1 (with his
"nightshirt") Picture #2 (without his shirt).
- "Shammu". A very large killer whale. I was given this plushie when I was about
6. He was all black, with a white belly, and white "eye" spots. He was about 2
feet long, and 2-1/2 feet around. When I first got him, he was nearly as big as me! I
recently found him, sitting high on a shelf in my garage. Picture #1
- "Clipper" A small blue "clip-on" rabbit. I was given this plushie
when I was about 8. I apparently lost him, and just recently my grandfather found him in
an old storage shed. He was terribly dirty, and in pretty bad shape, but with a little
cleaning he looks a bit better. He has a spring-clip built in so he can hold on to things.
- "Fiep". A small (4-1/2 inch) white mouse, made by Steiff. "Fiep" is
the German equivalent of "squeak" He was awfully expensive ($36) for such a
small plushie. Picture #1.
- "Mouse". (That's her name, "Mouse"). A 1 foot tall white mouse, with
plaid inner ears, and a plaid bow. Her fur is very soft and very long and she is very
snuggleable. Picture #1. Picture #2 (with
Fiep). Picture #3 (with Fiep).
- "Galadriel". A cute gray furred mouse about 12 inches tall, with a ribbon
around her neck. Her fur is not a soft as Mouse's, but she is still cuddly. (Her name, by
the way, is from a character in some of my drawings) Picture #1. Picture #2 (reading one of my favorite books). Picture
#3 (wearing my glasses). Picture #4
- "Ratzo". A white rat puppet, about 6 inches high. Picture
#1. Picture #2. Picture #3
- "Momma Mouse". A 12 inch tall, brownish gray mouse with pink paws and pink
inner ears. She wears a black ribbon around her neck. Picture #1.
Picture #2 (with Baby Mouse).
- "Baby Mouse". A small 3 inch tall mouse. She came with Momma Mouse above, and
looks exactly like her, except that the small mouse is also wearing a nightcap. Picture #1.
- "White" Galadriel's sister, she looks exactly like her, except White's fur is,
well, white. Picture #1.
- "Shorty" A short (9 inch) gray-furred mouse. He wears a red ribbon about his
neck. Picture #1.
- "Kay" A short (9 inch) gray-furred mouse, wearing a dress and a hat. I named
her Kay because I bought her at K-Mart. Picture #1.
- "Flower" A cute little skunk, about 11 inches high, with a fluffy tail. He is
the first non-mouse plushie that I've bought. Picture #1. Picture #2.
- "Juniper" A European brown hare, about 9 inches high and about 12 inches long.
She has rather coarse fur. Picture #1.
- "Meeko" Everyone knows who Meeko is. (If you don't, Meeko was the raccoon in
the movie Pocahontas.) Meeko is about 36 inches long, and a bit heavier than most
plushies. My Meeko is most definitely female. Her fur is very soft, and she is perfect for
cuddling. She is one of the most popular plushies available. Picture
#1. Picture #2. Picture #3.
- "Hopper" A 3-1/2 inch brownish kangaroo mouse, with a mechanical device inside
that makes him jump around when wound up. He was a recent gift from my grandmother. Picture #1. Picture #2.
- "Chris" A large (18 inch!) gray and white mouse, wearing a red bow and a red
hat with a piece of holly in it. Her fur is very soft, but her stuffing is a bit on the
hard side. She does have really cute ears, though. Picture #1.
- "Skiunk" A 12 inch black skunk with a white stripe. Not as cute as Flower, but
with softer fur. (Her name comes from the sales tag, which had "skiunk" instead
of "skunk".) Picture #1. Picture
- "Toby" A 12 inch light gray rabbit with a white belly. She has large, dark
eyes, and a white puff-ball tail. She is extremely cute. I found her completely by
accident, at a candy shop that was going out of business, in a mall way out of my way. Picture
#1. Picture #2. Picture #3 (close-up)
- "George" A very large (22 inch) mouse with grayish-brown fur. He has a pink
ribbon around his neck. I got his name from an old Bugs Bunny cartoon. (the one with the
Abominable Snowman. "And I will hug him and squeeze him and I will call him
George....") Picture #1
- "Little Lola Bunny" The smaller Lola, sold at McDonalds for $2.99. She is my
cheapest plushie. Her face is only semi-cute. Picture #1.
- "Putsi" A 14 inch white and chocolate brown Steiff bunny. She is my most
expensive plushie, at $190!!! (no, that's not a typo), but she
is so soft and so lovable, I think she was worth every penny. She looks very realistic; in
fact, while carrying her through the mall, I had several people tell me they thought she was
real. Her fur is incredibly soft, as soft as a real rabbit's fur. Putsi is my favorite
plushie, and she's the one I'm most likely to be seen with at a con. :-)
Picture #1, Picture #2, Picture #3 (with Toby) Picture #4 (with
- "Merry Chrismouse" A small (4 inch) white mouse with a red ribbon around his
neck, and a red and white striped nightcap. His arms and legs are jointed. Picture #1 Picture #2
- "Mümmel" A 14 inch brown Steiff hare. He was also very expensive, at $175. He
is even more realistic than Putsi! His fur is not quite as soft as Putsi's, but he's still
very soft. Picture #1 Picture #2
- "Souris" An 14 inch mouse made by Nounours. Her fur is gray, with a white
belly, face, and inner ears. Her fur is very long, as much as 2 inches! Picture #1

Velcro, so I can open them, or press them together. Picture #1

made by Eden. Picture #1
- "Pieps" A 10 inch white Steiff mouse with a big black nose and a blue ribbon.
I didn't know it when I bought him, but he has a little squeaker inside, so when you
squeeze him, he lets out a little squeak! : ) Picture #1
- "Topsi" A 10 inch white Steiff rabbit with a pink bow, and the most incredible
blue eyes. She was $100. Picture #1 Picture
- "Cinnamon" An 18 inch brown mouse that I found at Wal-Mart. She was only $10.
I had the hardest time trying to name her, until I walked into my room one night and heard
the song "Cinnamon" on the radio, and it just struck me as the perfect name. Picture #1

carries a miniature katana (the sword can be removed from its scabbard, and it is actually
sharp!) He was handmade by Stuffe & Nonsense. Picture #1 Picture #2
- "Mrs. Brisby" An 8 inch brown mouse wearing a 'tattered' red shawl. She was
originally made in 1982, when the movie The Secret of NIMH came out. I was lucky
enough to find her at ConFurence 8. Her nose is a little crooked, but she's really cute
otherwise. Picture #1 Picture #2

his face, so I named him after one of the rabbits in the novel Watership Down. Picture coming soon.

Bunny, but with a white tummy, and longer, softer fur. Picture

I found her at ConFurence 11 (I was fortunate, as a Dealer, I could buy
things from other Dealers long before the room was open to regular
attendees, giving me first pic of all the plushies!). Cuddly, cute,
and very soft!
- "Old Macgruder" A long brown bunny with a very large
rump! I also found him at ConFurence 11. I think he looks
a lot like Sleepy, but he's not a puppet.

kind of curly.
- "Momma Bunny"
- "Baby Bunny"
- "Baby Bunny #2" A set of bunnies! The momma bunny is
10" tall, and is actually a very small puppet (WAY too small for my
huge hands). The two baby bunnies are each about 3 inches long.
All three came in a plush tree stump, and look VERY cute with their heads
sticking out of it. :-)
- "Eldorado" Nothing at all to do with the animated movie,
or the City of Gold, even. Rather, I was listening to ELO's Eldorado
album while trying to come up with a name for this 10" tall gray bunny.
- "Ciento Cincuenta" Real original name, 150 in
Spanish. :-) She's a 12" tall white rabbit with a yellow

chamois belly. He's a 'Screenie Beanie", a plush with a chamois
belly for cleaning a computer monitor.
- "Zodiac Rat" Yikes! I bought a Ty Beanie Baby!
*grin* And immediately cut off the tags! *gasp!* This
plushie is one of the Zodiac series, commemorating the Year of the
Rat! He's sorta splotchy purple? With shiny ears and sparkly
green eyes. Zodiac Rat is by no means the most bizarre design in the
series, someone must have been smoking something when he designed them....
Arraigned by species:
Mice and rats: 71
Rabbits and hares: 50
Plushies I have lost:
- Small dolphin. He was about 6 inches long and solid gray. I was given this plushie at
about the same time as I received Shammu.
- Green and yellow snake. I made him in my junior high home-ec. class. He was about 6 feet
long, and had a rattle in his tail.
- Baby snake. I also made this plushie. He was a matched set with the above snake. The
baby snake was about 1-1/2 feet long, and did not have a rattle.
- Lion. He had a long mane that had a habit of getting frizzy. He was given to me when I
was about 9.
- Popple. The first plushie that I bought for myself. She was
white, and had a colorful puff-ball tail. I put a small gold ring around her left ear. I
bought her from my half-sister when I was about 13.
