I received a MyPetsies custom stuffed animal in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and may differ from yours.
I remember seeing Petsies, which are Custom Stuffed Animals of your own pets, on Shark Tank one night and thought to myself “Wow! that’s a great idea!”
When you lose a pet your heart is broken.
After all, they are a part of the family and they will be missed more than you can really imagine. When I lost each one of our girls, it did not get any easier just because you have been through it before.
Missing them doesn’t get any any easier as the time goes on either – the hurt will lessen, but the pain and want to hold them never really goes away. I had custom stuffed animals done when my girls passed and they cost me a fortune – I wish Petsies had been around back then, I could have saved a ton of money!
The Petsies in this post is one I received as a sample to see the quality of them and give you an idea on what you will receive and also the order process. I will update this post with pictures of Harley when mine arrives. But when I opened the box and saw this one, all I could say was aww. My sister and mother in law were here also and couldn’t believe how cute they are.
Petsies are great whether your pet has passed or is still with you. They make a great custom stuffed animal to cuddle with. They’re soft and squishy and solid. You know how you get a stuffed animal and it feels like they didn’t put enough stuffing in it. The Petsies don’t feel anything like that. Filled with stuffing and are completely huggable. I knew they were going to be a hit though because back when they were first started, they made stuffed animals out of kids drawings called Budsies. Those were awesome too.
If you have a photo of your pet than they can make a Petsies for you. Whether you have a dog, cat, horses, rat, or bird all it takes is a picture. I am having one created of Harley but I really should have had one done of Big Bird. There’s always next time. Petsies are available in 10 inch and 16 inch with specialty eyes and noses. Your pet’s markings are airbrushed on.
Customizing Your Petsies
They are easy to order. Just snap a pic or two or three of your pet, upload it to their site and make your choices. Choose the size, enter the information with their name, breed and your email address, how you want them positioned, sitting, standing, or laying, how you want their mouth, closed, closed with tongue, or open with tongue.
Then choose their ears, floppy, half or up, if you want their tail up, down, nub or no tail. Then choose their eye color and fur color. Be sure to get a photo of their special markings.
Estimated shipping time is approximately 6 weeks. However, you can choose to get it quicker for a slight additional fee. You can also opt for a sneak peak of your Petsies for an additional price also.
Want to customize your Petsies even more? You can! Choose to add a memory pocket and a Dog’s Leave Footprints sign. You can also add a display tray (which is free for an additional time), custom bling collar, Angel Wings, bandanas, custom pet bed and so much more.
The Petsies make the perfect holiday gift for those hard to buy for people. Maybe someone lost a pet that they’ve had for a long time and you don’t know what to get them. Whatever the reason, the person on the receiving end is sure to love their Petsies gift. A word of warning though, if you have a dog that likes her stuffed toys, you might want to keep it away from them. 😉
