2. stuffed toy, plushie, soft toy (stuffed doll)

I found these stuffed animals in the Whole Foods grocery store (it’s Amazon-owned) on Westlake Ave. I liked the stuffed alpaca* best, Peruvian blanket on its back and all. The T-rexes at the back, are nice, as well. I’m just not sure they make the same excellent cuddle material as the alpaca. (Scary teeth).
*Llamas have long, banana-shaped ears, so this is not a llama.
