How is it even possible that we are ALREADY at the beginning of the third week of November? There's little argument left that we're now on the downhill run to Thanksgiving, which is now only ONE WEEK away already, followed by Christmas NOW LESS THAN FIVE weeks from right now! How are YOUR holiday preparations progressing?
We can most certainly help you with at least some of them! Come check out our gorgeous Decorative Flags if your house front would benefit from a little refreshing ahead of the arrival of all those guests (plus they might even be able to find you a little more easily--and be impressed with your visual hospitality!), nab a Hostess gift or add to your gift stash for special people on your list while we have the best selection of "Stuff" in store!
Picking out and organizing arrival of enough Teddy Bears for you to contribute through us to Caden's Drive always gets us excited about our own (regularly priced) Teddy Bear selection--and it's always a great excuse for us to fill up the shelves where they always live! Right now those shelves are veritably overflowing with choices, with a few more on their way, so if any of you Teddy Bear aficionados out there "need" a good excuse to consider adding a little something to your own collection, now would be a very good time to come check out our gang 'o' Teddy Bears!
We just gave away all of this swag to the lucky winner of our "Fall Harvest Fun" Customer Appreciation Gift Basket Drawing!

Well we HOPE you'll be popping in to see us on Small Business Saturday! It's on November 30 this year and we will soon be letting you know what our line-up of Customer Appreciation "incentives" will be for you to visit us for some LOCAL SHOPPING on that day...
Small Business Saturday will be the first day of this winter holiday season that you can "earn" a Christmas Gift-with-Purchase Customer Reward! What do you suppose it will include this year?

Newest "contributions" to our Teddy Bear Collection from Ganz!
We are just loving the NEW Ganz's Crystal Ornament Collection for Fall this year!
Here's a recap of the new styles now in store!
The more or less "flat" Crystal Ornaments have faceted acrylic pieces cut to either transmit (like the transparent petal portions of the Sunflowers) or reflect (when mirror backed as in the case, for example, of the big acorn) light prismatically, creating all sorts of blingy sparkle in direct light! The Kissing Krystal accented by an autumn-hued (Great-horned?) Owl is brand new this year, replacing the long-time previous version whose sparkly, fall-colored mistletoe was studded with only acorns; its giant clear faceted portion also transmits tiny rainbow spots when illuminated through and through! We love how unique and creative these new styles are for Autumn decorating--and are especially impressed with the new Fall Kissing Krystal!
Teddy Bears and Sesame Street Characters were riding in those huge Gund boxes that just recently arrived!
"Big Bo" Panda, "Graham" (seated, upper right and about the same color as the crackers), "Maxie" (classic big hugs from her!) and "Henry" (preceded by his very imposing schnoz and luscious in velvety black!)
Gund's wonky little "Toothpick" Teddy Bear has become SO popular (although not always on first impression--until you realize they MEANT to make him that way!) that Gund has created an entire NEW collection of "related" plush characters around him! We just ordered almost all that are currently available--and here are the ones in stock now!
We have refilled all those empty "leaves" on our "Tree" (now again) full of Audubon Birds with the authentic sound chips recorded by Cornell University! Back in stock are Meadowlarks, Mockingbirds, House Sparrows, House Finches, Black-capped Chickadees and Eastern Bluebirds!
We also just filled in a bunch of gaps in our Forest Habitat with new pieces from Wild Republic!
Here is a montage showing critters added from the most recent shipment!
These unique pieces from Wild Republic just assisted in repopulating our South American Rain Forest Habitat!
Of COURSE we brought along the Decorative Flags (now "guarded" by our plush Dogs!), Raggedy Ann and Andy and our 3-D Greeting Card Collections (both Swing and Pop-Up)!
Yes--we brought the "Cat House", currently housing both our Realistic Domestic Cats and Kittens as well as our Caricature Cats like Grumpy Cat, Pusheen (a few left) and Simon's Cat AND our Ocean Habitat! Those Jellyfish and that big blue Sperm Whale will eventually find themselves again "floating" among the waves--as soon as we can get a ladder in there to suspend them from the ceiling...!
Our Medical Area has become one of our most popular displays, so of course we have it at the new location! We even made more space for it to house additional fun "stuff" in anticipation of adding more plush Cells, Germs and Vermin from Giant Microbes in the near future!
Here is a montage of the first wave of NEW Fall Decorative Flags, some with available matching 6" Accent Magnets--in store NOW!!
It is hard to believe that Star Tulip Stuffies, House of Fine Stuffed Animals has been open for over four years home again in Redlands, CA (we started here back in 2003 in the now-defunct old downtown Redlands Mall)!
We have lived and worked and been your neighbors in this area for more than 40 years! Star Tulip Stuffies was originally opened as a storefront in the Redlands Mall back in 2003. Since then a growing following of stuffed animal aficionados has managed to find, support and spread the word about us.
From the very beginning our intent has been to bring our customers the very best selection of the finest quality plush creatures we can find while keeping our prices as rational as we can.
We are all about choices; we like nothing better than to present several different companies’ version of the same animal because we have found that every designer will have a different take on that same critter. Thus, if you visit us, which we certainly hope to make you curious enough to do, you should not be surprised to find that, not only do we have an “unusual” creature, say a porcupine or an opossum, rendered in plush, but that we also will likely have four or five or even more styles from as many different manufacturers (with accompanying differences in sizes and prices!) of that individual kind of animal! This also means that while you will find respected and familiar names like Gund, Ganz, Douglas Cuddle Toy, Fiesta Toys, Aurora, Wild Republic, etc. on many of our products, we make a point of searching out quality companies less well known, especially in California, that you may only brush up against on a trip to the zoo or aquarium (we really love the educational kick provided by those extremely realistic representations!) or while traveling east of the Rocky Mountains (many retailers are simply unwilling to stand the cost of shipping some of these…)--or that are just outrageously esoteric (we have plush germs--in Petri dishes, no less--by GiantMicrobes and body parts--if I only had a brain--from I [Heart] Guts!
Our selection is so diverse (we are simply stuffed with “stuff”, but then “stuff” is what we do!) in order to keep track of everything we have resorted to arrangement by habitat! When you visit (by now you know you have to if you can…) you will eventually notice that our entire shop is suggestive of the interior and exterior of a gigantic fantastic playhouse or dollhouse. “Inside” live authentic Raggedy Ann and Andy, Sesame Street characters, etc. Also living the pampered “indoor” life are plush Cats and Teddy Bears “Outside” you will find our rather extensive collection of realistic Dog Breeds (this is a personal favorite category of ours, so if someone makes a decent version of a specific breed, we will try to have it for you!), Barnyard Animals, Horses, Frog and Turtle ponds, Forest critters, Desert animals, Birds, and creatures of Central and South America, Australia, Africa and Asia as well as an area devoted to Ocean life! There is even a section “inhabited” by the fantasmagorical creatures of the imagination including dragons, faeries, unicorns and the like!
About Our Name: The “Star Tulip” part of our name alludes to our other life as occasional botanists! “Star tulips” are members of a rather large genus, Calochortus, meaning “beautiful grass”, of native Californian lilies that includes species with enchanting common names like “butterfly” or “mariposa tulips” and “faerie lanterns”. The butterfly tulips have large goblet-shaped tulip-style flowers, often marked with spots and bobbing in the breeze above their cohabitating grasses like the insects they appear to mimic. The more diminutive faerie lanterns have closed flowers on slender overarched stems and could easily be imagined to light the nighttime activities of elfin woodland inhabitants. Our tiny namesakes open fully wide and close to the ground as if they were stars scattered across the forest floor! The alliteration of “Star Tulip” and “Stuffies” was just too tempting to pass up!
