Happy New Year fellow Snuffleistas!

Happy New Year to all fellow Snuffles lovers (I will call them Snuffleistas ;) ) around the globe.  I have met people from China, Japan, Australia, Germany, France, Canada, and obviously the US and many more countries who collect snuffles.  Snuffles is much more famous than I may have expected.  And I am not surprised.  Snuffles is a teddybear with a big smile in his face, a smile that spells happiness and joy. 

Thanks to the contributors to support my blog and post their Snuffles pictures. 

Living in Europe for now over 3 years, I find it wonderful that the Snuffles blog can still continue and finds so many supporters. 

Happy New Year 2013!  Enjoy your snuffles!

Did you know that the Mohair snuffles was sold in two countries?

For years, I had two Mohair snuffles sitting on my shelf.  I never really noticed the difference between the two, but they were sold in two different countries, one was sold in the US, the other in Canada.  You may think now, who cares or what does it matter?  Well, the snuffles sold in the US has only two tags on his back, and one hangtag in his ear. In addition, he has a tag around his arm.

The Canadian snuffles has 4 tags on his back, and two hangtags in his ear.  They both share the leather tag on their chest.  The second hangtag in his ear comes from Bear St., a Canadian distributor.

How about a Snuffles forum?

I know there is a snuffles forum on yahoo.  But it seems that there is little going on.  What do you think about creating a forum for snuffles and integrate it into this blog?  Can we instill life into such a forum?  Any thought?  Send me email with your thoughts.

Millennium Gund Snuffles Bear

A load of beautiful pictures of a big 30 inch MiIllenium Snuffles from one of my blog's readers.  Thank you Christina for the great pictures.  The Millenium Snuffles is the best to date.  Most cuddly Snuffles, most huggable.  Hopefully Gund will make one like it again, similar stuffing and size would be great.  Perfect size and shape.

fluffly or liller

The nice thing about this blog is that people who read it do contact me for different reasons.  They send me pictures of their snuffles, they ask me to buy or sell some snuffles from them, it is quite diverse, like a microcosmos. 

A short while ago, a young man emailed me a picture of his girlfriend's snuffles which is 23 years old, and his girlfriend had him since she was born.  Well, here is the picture of "fluffly or liller" as his girlfriend calls this little snuffles.  He told me that she still sleeps with her little snuffles.  Aren't snuffles sometimes comforting?

Big mohair snuffles beige/brownish color

Millenium Snuffles took a huge and long trip to China

This Millenium snuffles has seen the world, even if it was only from the sky. He flew from the United States to Hongkong in China to a fellow collector, poster on this blog and lover of snuffles. Here you see the first photo taken upon his arrival.

Below you see photos from the original owner. I think I have mentioned this previously, I found out that there are two different kinds of Millenium snuffles. One with short fur, very nice and soft, the filling seems to make him sit more like he was staring at the moon, and another one, with long fur, soft and more scquishy and the filling makes him sit more like bowed and less upright. Both are very nice, I have one of each. This one is the version with the long fur as far as I can see.And a final distinction between the long fur and short fur millenium snuffles is also with the positioning of their eyes.  The long fur snuffles has his exes sitting right above his snout, touching the white snout, while the short fur snuffles has about an inch space between his eyes and his white snout.
I am not sure if the filling of both snuffles is different, or if it is just accidental that they sit up differently. However the fur is different. I am sure, the new owner will have a lot of fun with this new Millenium snuffles.
