We all know a kid whose stuffed animal never leaves his side. But what about when the best friend needs a bath?

Here’s a solution: Bommerscheim Buddies, cotton bunnies with a removable and washable cover.

When this plush toy gets dirty, simply remove the cover and wash it. You can replace it immediately with the same fabric for an invisible fix, or with an alternative personality.

The toys, created by two sisters in the Midwest, are made in Indiana in two dozen patterns in flannel and plush.

You can even find a matching blankie. The blanket is $11.99 and the Buddie itself runs about $19.95. For $10 more, you can add a name. Extra covers are $13.99. Find out more at www.BommerscheimBuddies.com.
