Puffalumps

Puffalumps

Puffalumps were a soft silky animal and looked like a pig/hippopotamus hybrid. You could get them in various pastel shades - mine was white.

The first time I went abroad I was 5 and had to hand over my Puffalimp to be put through the X-ray machine at customs. "Will he be alright?" I nervously asked the customs officer, "Of course - but he will come out green!", he quipped.

I went hysterical and Mum was furious with the guy. Needless to say, my Puffalump didn't make the return journey as hand baggage.

    I have tried so hard to find my yellow puff elephant with sailor dress :( I have been searching for years. Please does anyone have a lead or one I can have? My so called friend threw her out because she was so old and dirty :(

    I have a yellow bear puffalump. It was originally my older brother's but as soon as i could crawl i continuously stole it from his room until I was allowed to keep him. I still have him although he is now very fragile and his material is almost paper-like, and when you look at him a good 40% of what you see is stuffing - he has some major holes! one of the most loved bears on this planet.

    I am in a desperate search for "Puffy"! My neice had a puffy given to her by her granmother for her 1st birthday, it was a blue bunny and Puffy went EVERYWHERE she went even at 14 Puffy still came along, unfortunately Puffy got lost when she was 14 and moved from SC to TX and now at almost 20 she still gets upset that Puffy is gone! She is getting married next year and I am desperately trying to find this Puffy for her wedding day! If anyone can help me PLEASE do!! You can reach me at bjcrawford@marykay.com I know it would just make the gift of a lifetime for my neice to get Puffy back!!

    I got my white bunny when I was around 8 or 9 and she is still sitting in a box in my parents attic. One day soon I hope to bring her out to give to my 5 yr old as I know she will love her just as much as I did.

    I loved my Puffalump so much. She was always great for a cuddle. I had the same one in the photo.

    I recieved my puffalump when i was born. It was in my crib and, 19 years later, still sits on my bed. I will always love "puffa", not a very creative name.. I am aware. I have the gray mouse with the brown eyes and the christmas one that looks similar. He smells alittle funny, and has turned from a nice light blue color to a dirty brownish gray but he is perfect. Everyone in my family has had a turn at sewing some part of him back together. I believe the only thing keeping it from falling apart is the stitching everyone has done. The tail is hanging by a thread, literally. I just finished my first year of college, and puffa was at home. I missed him, but was worried that something would happen to him in the dorm room, so he stayed on my bed. As sad as this sounds, I love him.

    I have a yellow bunny puffalump. My grandma gave it to me when I was 5. I used to toss it high in the air and let it hit the popcorn ceiling. Such fond memories. I'm so thankful I kept it after all these year. Some things should not be thrown away.
