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!
Easter will still happen, no matter what the situation is with the Coronavirus--or anything else going on in the world, for that matter--and we are not about NOT to acknowledge the significance of this spiritual celebration for many people or the expectation of many children that they will receive a visit from the Easter Bunny! So we refuse to let fear and uncertainty keep us from celebrating by joyfully decorating the inside and front windows of our Shop in honor of this important Spring Holiday!
Today is Sunday, April 5, 2020
We are OPEN for curbside product pick-up until around 5 PM today!
We appreciate all of your past support and ask you to continue to allow us to serve you under these modified conditions (we consider it a bit of a privilege at any time, but even more so now)--and to please stay healthy and safe during these unusual times!
We are adding more pre-made Easter Baskets (one-of-a-kind) to our Shopping Carts below! We have been putting together some smaller, less expensive ones, added them to the items you can purchase directly online yesterday and they are SOLD OUT today--we will get some more up there as soon as we can bag and bow them up!
We are happy to work with you to assemble custom baskets (Dogs, Cats, Dinosaurs, Unicorns, Safari, Ocean, Teddy Bears,???) per your requests (we can custom invoice about anything via Paypal by email) if you contact us!
There are LOTS of both Easter and non-seasonal individual items listed here, too!
Please scroll down to the "'Stuff' You Can Order Online" section to see what you can purchase directly here and know, too, that we can respond to requests (call our land-line, 909-798-9313--no texts--or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org) about items not listed with emails including images and prices of what we have that could work for you. Should you decide you want an item in response to such a query, we can easily create a custom Paypal email invoice to allow you to purchase online for curbside pick up just like the items that ARE listed in the Shopping Carts below.
Our "Add to Shopping Cart" feature is like what we did for folks who wanted to donate directly "from afar" to Caden Henderson's Loma Linda Children's Hospital Christmas Teddy Bear Drive last Christmas! It is available for locals who are willing to pick up at curbside from our shop during regular business hours (you're probably "on the way" to some "essential service", like a take-out meal pick-up or grocery shopping, right?) or make another arrangement other than direct shipping (we can hold your purchase at our shop until it is reasonable for you to collect it) for now. Items are available to purchase via Paypal. Remember that you can process any payment through Paypal as a "Guest" if you don't want/have a Paypal account, safely using your credit card of choice without us ever even seeing your payment information--we love this protective firewall for you! We started with potential Easter Basket items and have added/will be adding more "everyday" items, but please do feel free to let us know (call our land-line or email us) if there is something else specific you are looking for and/or have seen in our product or habitat pictures--we're happy to send you images of possibilities--and prices--so you can decide if we can help!
Sad news:Our beautiful day on April 1 appreciating California's native plants flowering in our local deserts (far away from other people) ended sadly when we returned home to find our beloved Australian Shepherd Foxy expired as if asleep in her kennel. We are devastated because this came as a shock, especially as Foxy was always one of our healthiest dogs, and had our vet look into possible causes. It turns out the Foxy had a silent tumor, hard to detect with no symptoms to suggest its presence, on an artery at the base of her heart. It finally caused a rupture that bled into the pericardium of her heart. We consider it a blessing that she showed no signs of distress until her last few days and then slipped away peacefully after a long and happy life of being much loved. Eventually, we will replace the gaping holes in our heats with another fur baby, but for now our hearts are aching..
Rest in peace, Foxy. We'll see you on the other side of that Rainbow Ridge....
Here's some "Stuff" you can order directly here online right now for (eventual) pick-up at the shop:
AS PROMISED, Pre-made Easter Baskets and some small basket stuffers!
We just SOLD OUT the small, simple Easter Baskets! We will be adding new replacement ones soon featuring a medium Easter Stuffed Animal (cost $12) accompanied by a smaller Basket-stuffer Buddy (cost $9), for a total price of $21. Subtracting our usual $3 DISCOUNT puts your cost at $18. The Basket and Ribbon is FREE!
The above one-of-a-kind Easter Baskets each contain 3 different plush Bunnies worth a total of $35--BUT you get a COUPON DISCOUNT on EACH Basket of $5 off AND the Bows and Baskets are FREE! Choose by color:
Here are some adorable, extra-quality potential Easter Basket Stuffers from Douglas (we're adding individuals to some of our pre-made Easter Baskets):
This cute cast of 4" long Barnyard Babies includes two fluffy mottled (but quiet) Chicks, one Golden-tan, one Black and White, and a downy Yellow Duckling that comes with a quacky sound chip!
We think these sweet little 6.5" tall Easter plush are among the most creative interpretations of Easter Bunnies out there--they don't even need a Basket because they are each wearing one, complete with "woven" detailing! However, just because they ARE "Basket Bunnies" doesn't mean they wouldn't be ridiculously cute tucked in among the goodies in anybody's special full-sized Easter Basket!
The above items ONLY are currently available to order online now using the shopping cart feature beneath each group.
We hope to continue to update with more items, but if you see something of interest on the rest of our website please contact us (email or land-line, no texts) and we will almost certainly be able to accommodate you individually and directly!
A quick word about "stuff" for Easter Baskets: We purposefully order limited amounts of specifically (any) seasonal "stuff", including Easter, for a number of reasons. For one thing, every department store, drugstore, hobby and craft store, discount outlet, grocery and convenience store tends to flood their shelves with (not always the best of quality of) such seasonal merchandise--even if stuffed animals are not something they normally carry--so the "market" is very well-covered, often for prices we wouldn't want to try to match. More importantly to us is the fact that any piece designed for a particular holiday or occasion, unless perhaps it is used as decor, is immediately passe the day of or after the event. We want our stuffed animals to be enjoyed far beyond such a short time! Furthermore, we have many a loyal customer who we know full well would be just as pleased if not more so to find an octopus or a moose or an owl as a bunny or a duckling in their special Easter Basket!
All of that said, we want to remind you that we do maintain a continuous supply of Bunnies, Chickens, Ducklings, Lambies, et. al. in our year-round "Barnyard" habitat and since those are not decorated with any seasonal reference, they can be appreciated by their recipient well beyond just Easter, as long as they are meaningful to them for any number of timeless reasons (beauty, comfort, love of nature, love for the giver/memory....). If you are planning a gift with that kind of staying power, it might actually be worth the slightly more you might choose to pay for a little better quality as well--and you will NEVER find our stuffed animals in man-handled piles on a shelf or in a picked-through bin!
Look at ALL of the Plush Dog Breeds we have in stock!
Qualify to get in on our Easter Customer Appreciation Gift Basket Drawing! 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!
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!
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!
