Why Babies Need a Custom Snuggle Buddy


Snuggle buddies are often a little one’s first friends. They are soft, loveable, and provide comfort during naptime. That’s why choosing a snuggle buddy for your baby is a special moment, and at Kalin Marie, we understand that. So why should you order your custom snuggle buddy from Kalin Marie?

They Come In A Variety of Animals

We are constantly adding new fabrics and options to our available selections, but currently, for our snuggle buddies, you can choose from a:

There are several different colors of Minky fabric to select for each animal option, and all snuggle buddies can be embroidered with a name or message. With such a large selection, it’s easy to find your little one’s favorite animal or color or even match it to a themed nursery.

Minky Fabric Is Soft and Easy To Wash

One of the main reasons Minky is used for baby blankets and stuffed animals is because it is incredibly soft and snuggly. Minky is also fairly easy to wash and keep clean.

To wash your Minky snuggle buddy:

  1. Wash it in cold water on a delicate cycle. 
  2. Use only mild, dye-free detergent. Do not use fabric softener on Minky, it will cause the Minky to matte, and it will lose its plushness.
  3. Air dry your Minky snuggle buddy or tumble dry with no heat. Do not use any heat or fabric softener sheets on your Minky. They may cause it to matte.

The less you wash Minky items, the better they will hold up. But when you do wash it, just remember to treat it as gently as possible.

You choose your item, the fabric, and the embroidery message, and we custom-make your order.
