Last Saturday, instead of our usual haunts for his kind of toys, Miah and I went to SM Megamall for my kind of toys. It was the launch of Plush & Play as the first Filipino-made plushie brand to be sold in Toy Kingdom!

I first saw Plush & Play toys when I was replenishing my Human Nature stash. I found the toys cute, but I was more amused by their funny and witty names inspired by local icons. Come on, names like Manny Pakwan, Anne Kamatis, Buko Martin, and Pan Talong would at least elicit a smile, if not a giggle, right? I found Filipinya to be the cutest and planned to buy but never got around to doing it because I wanted to see them in person first. So when I got the invite, it was a no-brainer: I had to go!
|How could you not go awwww?|
|I only have a photo of these four stacks of toys because a crowd had already gathered to check out the toys and I couldn't squeeze in, heh|

|Fancy meeting you alone in the crowd, couldn't help but notice your frown 🎶🎶|
|Lookie, my Filipinya was handcrafted with love by Tita Belo|
|Filipinya now sits with my other plushie friends, and they are one big happy plushie family!|
Plush & Play toys are gifts that keep on giving, and I am happy to be spreading the word about these plushies. I think I will even get more for myself! I want that big Manny Pakwan plushie (P749.75), actually. Hmmm.
