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.
This is my favorite snuffles, a millenium snuffles which I have for a long time.  He came from Florida and has traveled with me around the US, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, he loves to drive in the car and is a funny fellow with a really cute and sweet smile in his face, isn't he? 

Hawaian snuffles

I believe in the 90s Gund made the socalled Hawaiian snuffles with green grass skirts.  The whole group consists of at least 3 different snuffles afaik.  Anyhow, one of these fellows made its way to Germany, and here he is.

Stache Snuffles

(picture from unkown source on the internet)

Looks like Gund is coming out with some ugly looking snuffles.  This has to be the ugliest to date.  While it may one day end up to be a valuable collectors item, I cannot overcome myself to buy this one.  What do you think about this one?  Post your opinions in the comments section!

Puzzle time!

The Millenium bros



The two Millenium brothers continue to be my favorite snuffles. Their fur, their looks, their big smile in their face and their soft yet firm filling to keep their bodyshape, everything together makes them both perfect. It is so much fun to cuddle them, and they bring just a lot of joy into life. I wish Gund would make a snuffles of this size again with the same kind of filling, in some other colors maybe?
