The Call of the Wild(flowers) has become too loud for us to ignore!
Therefore, we will be CLOSED (only) on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, to make our first botanical foray of this new season! Of course we will bring back a report with pictures!
We will resume regular business hours on THURSDAY, February 27. (Remember that our regular hours on Thursdays are always 2 PM until 7 PM.)
We apologize for any inconvenience, but thank you for your tolerance in allowing us occasional breaks like this from our usual open-seven-days-a-week schedule during the California native wildflower season!
Extremely easy access from Interstate 10 in Redlands between San Bernardino and Palm Springs!
Find us NOW at our NEW HOME, at 1410 Industrial Park Avenue in the Tri-City Center
Open 7 days a week!
Friends from Riverside, Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties and beyond: Do you pass "routinely" through Redlands on your travels?
Make Us a “regular” stop!
Saint Patrick's Day is always on March 17th (that's only about three weeks away!), but this year Easter is not until April 12--so we have time enough to get our Saint Patrick's Day on for awhile inside our Shop before we switch our decor over to Easter!!
Today is Tuesday, February 25, 2020
We are OPEN until 6 PM today!
NEW Dragons and Unicorns from Douglas have helped fill up our Fairy and Fantasy area--and all the NEW the Dragons just in from Aurora fit, too!
LOOK who just joined those new dragons and Unicorns in our Fairy and Fantasy Habitat!
NEW from Douglas, it's a cute Baby Yeti and an absolutely adorable Sasquatch!
HEEEEEERE'S NEW Puppies from First and Main!
The beautiful aqua, spring green and lavender colors of this lovely flag design were too attractive to pass up--even though this flag is not appliqued and/or otherwise embellished. The delicate but lush water-color effect could only be achieved with the subtlety of print on this declaration of the Reason for the Easter Season!
Easter is almost two months away (like those weeks aren't going to fly by...!), but it's not too soon to begin qualifying to get in on our Easter Customer Appreciation Gift Basket Drawing! In fact, since you can enter once a day per purchase (no minimum) per customer and we're taking entries as of NOW, you have time to enter LOTS of times! Don't miss your chance(s) to WIN!
Newest "contributions" to our Teddy Bear Collection from Ganz!
Teddy Bears and Sesame Street Characters arrived earlier this year during Autumn!
"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!
A plethora of new plush designs arrived this Fall from Ganz!
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!
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!
