1. TeeTurtle Moody Reversible Octopus Plush

The Reversible TeeTurtle Moody Octopus Plush is fun to hold, crush as a stress reliever, and announce your moods too!

And we love the manufacturer to say that the plush is suitable for anyone from 36 months to 99 years old. So what’s so awesome about these 7 inch by 7 inch by 5 inch cloth toys? There is the tactile squishness, so squeeze it when you need stress relief. Plus, the 36 colorful designs are reversible, so you can use them to show your mood to those who don’t know. And some sport “happy” and “sad” lips so you can quickly tell which side you’re on. Who Said Toys Are Kid’s Stuff?
