10 Smart Stuffed Animal Storage Solutions
If there’s one thing new parents learn in the first few months, it’s that people sure do love to give babies stuffed animals. As an adult, I can understand this — and you can too, right? We remember the one or two special stuffed animals that brought us so much comfort and love as a kid — and there’s always the hope that we’ll gift that memorable lovie. That, and they’re really cute.
Yet as a parent, I can feel your frustration.
