Georgeous Mini Stuffed Animals – 3 Shop Reviews

Have you read my previous post on choosing figurines or dolls before? Because I am pretty proud of that one myself, to be honest, haha. Today, however, I will be talking about mini stuffed animals that I found on Etsy.

Some of them are really fantastic to look at and I have a favorite, to be honest. That one seller is also pretty popular on my Facebook group, the shop get’s a lot of ‘likes’ and ‘hearts’. It is up to you to find out which one I mean, so let’s go 😉

Shop number 1: Bridget Mc Carthy.

This Etsy shop makes or sells.

Miniature Plush Pets, which she is very known for, but also other mini related stuff, see below.

Some more info about this shop.

First, I would really advise you to take a look at her Instagram page ;-).

Her cat sculptures and other miniatures have been featured in several miniature magazines: in Miniature collector magazine, in Miniatura (Spain), and in Dollhouse miniature magazine (UK).

She also is a former artist at Walt Disney co!

The miniatures are one of a kind, lifelike, and full of personality. They are made with artificial fur and the expressions of the mini stuffed animals are painted in detail with a tiny-micro-painted brush and steady puls. Whiskers are applied for realism, along with her ‘magic touch’.

She sells in her shop:

  • miniature dogs
  • mini cats
  • miniature mice
  • Beatrix Potter
  • Gizmo
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Bunnies
  • holiday themes: Halloween, Easter, Christmas
  • Victorian
  • food and others

The price :

Variable prices, check out her Etsy shop.

Overall Rank.

star reviews

Where to get this item.

On Etsy of course.

The good and the bad :

The Good.

  • buyers are raving over this shop, which means that it gets a lot of 5-star reviews in the last 7 days. ( I mean, how could they NOT give 5 stars, right? 😉 )
  • just absolutely splendid and handcrafted pieces of ART

The Bad.

  • items can be a bit on the pricey side, but in my opinion, that is worthwhile for pieces of art.

Final Conclusion.

I guess that you found my favorite artist, LOL!

Shop number 2: Hagimi.

This Etsy shop makes or sells.

Micro Amigurumi Crochet, Miniature animals crochet.

Some more info about this shop.

This seller makes mini stuffed animals with her own design, handcrafted and they are crocheted.

On the extensive list of miniature animals is included:

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Bears
  • Mouse, rodents
  • monkey
  • birds
  • farm animals
  • sea creatures
  • wild animals
  • insects and reptiles
  • but also things like plants, flowers, and a glass bottle

The price :

Again, variable prices, a ‘bit’ lower than the first shop though 😉

Overall Rank.

star reviews

Where to get this item.

On Etsy here.

The good and the bad :

The Good.

  • more affordable than the first shop, but still has some pretty nice animal minis with good craftmanship!
  • buyers are also raving over this shop. Maybe by now, you know what I mean by ‘raving’ on Etsy? Well, it means that this shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the last 7 days 🙂
  • returns and exchanges accepted
  • she can and wants to do custom orders

The Bad.

  • I don’t see any negative reviews!

Final Conclusion.

I would definitely buy from this shop, as it is a little bit more in the price range for my wallet, but still great quality 😉

Shop number 3: BlytheBannAnnaBears

This Etsy shop makes or sells.

Mostly Blythe dolls, but also a few miniature pets.

Some more info about this shop.

So as I said, this shop sells most of all Blythe dolls, but I did want to mention a few cute little animals that she makes, handmade.

Another reason I wanted to mention these, is because they are made on a scale of 1/6, so they are suited for that size, on the contrary from the previous Etsy shops, which are all on a 1/12 scale. Keep in mind that these are bigger (always check measurements before purchasing miniatures)!

So these would suit well your collection of Blythe, Pullip, Licca or Paola Reina, Waldorf, Textile, Jolina Ballerina, Les Cherries, Little Darling, and others. Most of these are crocheted.

The price :

The prices are going down again in the third shop, compared to the other 2, but still variable 😉

Overall Rank.

Another

star reviews

Where to get this item.

Yes, you guessed it, on Etsy.

The good and the bad :

The Good.

  • a bigger scale than usual, to accompany your 1/6 scale dollhouses and dolls
  • buyers are raving, this means that the shop gets a lot of 5-star reviews in the last 7 days
  • returns and exchanges accepted

The Bad.

  • just one little remark that I can see is that 1 mini pet was a bit too large for her doll, that’s it

Final Conclusion.

I would buy miniature animals from this shop because the quality looks good compared to the price.

My Final Conclusion.

As you can tell, there definitely are several shops that sell fantastic mini stuffed animals, there are some true artists out there!

Finally, I would like to show you this picture as well, the tiniest stuffed animal that I could find on Etsy, a cuuuute little polar bear!

  1. Hey Lizzy. Thank you for the amazing article. It got me smiling as I go through it,. Those small stuffed animals are too cute for the eyes to behold. I should do all in my power to ensure that my kids do not get exposed to the information in here because they a re gonna break my bank. When I am ready I would not mind to come back here.

    • Haha Bogadi , are you sure that you are talking about your kids? They sure are tempting to buy, right 😉

      Thanks for your comment!

  2. Wow, I found this article just in time. My mother’s birthday is just around the corner and this would make the perfect gift. Hagimi looks perfect since they look like they might have one that resembles the pet she already owns. Have you bought any of these yourself? Would love to get a hands-on review.

    Thanks again, Lizzy.

    • Hi Stevie,

      I haven’t bought one of those myself yet, but I probably will someday. As I want to have little ‘trolls’ in my treehouse when it’s finished 🙂

      A happy birthday to your mom!

      best regards,

      Lizzy

  3. Wow, these are gorgeous, and it is so tempting for me to own that doggy, as his facial expression is just so gorgeous.

    You say as a downside that the miniatures are expensive, but as you say they are all individually made and painted by hand, so it is the workmanship you are probably paying for, as I am sure it takes a long time to produce such fine looking animals. In fact, most original art is expensive, and because of this sadly it is considered a luxury to own, but if one can afford to invest, why not?

    • Hi Michel, 

      I totally agree with you, lots of hours go into these pieces of art, that’s what makes them expensive indeed. I thought I would just mention that anyways;-)

      have a nice day!

  4. I  really enjoyed shopping with you today, you did a fantastic job taking me to all of your favorite shops. I am a big fan of art, so I do appreciate this experience with you. It just amazes me what artists are able to accomplish, if only I was so creative I also could create beautiful artwork as well.

    I am looking forward to our next shopping trip together, you are a great guide for finding mini treasures.

    Thank you
