Please see the photos for a swatch chart with color suggestions, and click on the photo to make it large enough to read the color names. Please feel free to describe the colors you would like to have, in the order notes at checkout, and I will try to give you the closest colors I have, depending on availability. Colors tend to vary on different screens, and so they may appear to be different on yours than on mine. Standard eyes are white with black pupils.

Want to name your own slug? I can personalize your hang tag, which comes tied to your Hug Me Slug with a ribbon. You can name your slug, or I can print "For + a recipient's name" on the front of the hang tag. I also have room on the back of the tag for a short message, if you would like to include one. Send me the details in the order notes at checkout.

If you would like to send your slug as a gift, to a separate address, I can include a gift note for you as well. Just let me know that I am shipping to a gift address, and let me know what you'd like your note to say, in the order notes at checkout. Please allow one to two business days between your purchase and shipment for me to make your hang tag.

My fleece Hug Me Slugs have no loose or removable parts, and so they are safe for play. (Their cute hang tags are meant to be untied and put away for safe keeping before giving to small children.)

Hug Me Slugs have love to give. Lots. And they're always happy to give it.

Hug Me Slug stuffed banana slug plush toys are handmade by me.

Hug Me Slug stuffed animals are meant to be displayed, loved, played with, and most of all, hugged. Hug one, and you can’t help but feel their joy. Their smiles are pretty contagious too.

Hug Me Slug stuffed animals are created from my own original design and pattern. Their bodies are made of 100% poly fleece, which has been pre-washed and air dried.

They have a circle of coordinating 100% cotton or cotton blend quilting fabric, which has also been pre-washed, on their bottoms.

Each Hug Me Slug is hand signed on his or her bottom. That tickles!

My fleece Hug Me Slugs have hand-embroidered smiles, sewn with a needle and embroidery floss, to make a chain stitch.

Their eyes and hearts are sewn on by hand, using embroidery floss, to form a blanket stitch around their edges.

Their eyes have been custom-printed from my design, onto fleece, and individually sealed by hand with nontoxic Liquitex Fabric Medium.

Hug Me Slug plush toys are stuffed with polyester stuffing. A doll needle is used to carefully move their stuffing around to form their sluggy shapes.

Each Hug Me Slug stuffed banana slug comes out a little different. Some are a bit chubby, and others more svelte. Each one is unique.
Hug Me Slug plush toys are quirky, fun, unique gifts for people of all ages.

Hug Me Slugs have welcomed new babies, celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and all kinds of special occasions. They have also comforted and cheered people who needed someone to hug. Hug Me Slugs make great friends.

Hug Me Slugs are cute, sweet, whimsical additions to a baby's nursery, a child's bedroom, a college student's dorm room, or any room in the house where you'd like to have a happy slug smiling back at you.

Tips for caring for your Hug Me Slug:

Hug Me Slugs plush toys may be gently spot cleaned, rinsed with cool water, and set out to air dry. I use a wash cloth, or a good-quality paper towel, with a small amount of soapy water, to gently wash spots on them, if needed. Then I use a wet cloth or paper towel to rinse the spot, or if necessary, I hold them under a running faucet to rinse the surface with cool water.

Hug Me Slug stuffed animals are carefully soft sculpted with a doll needle, to achieve their shape, and so I avoid putting them in a washing machine and I avoid squeezing them to remove excess water. I let them sit on a counter to air dry, with a towel under them, if there is any excess water. If they look like they would like some grooming, once they are dry, a toothbrush has worked nicely for me.

Shipping policies

I ship most packages via USPS Priority Mail, within the United States, and by USPS First Class International Package Service, outside of the United States, unless otherwise noted in the listing. I usually ship within 1-2 business days (Monday-Friday), sometimes the same day. I am shipping from North Carolina, USA. The Post Office here is closed on weekends. I will send you a shipping date and a tracking number. Priority Mail shipping usually takes 2-3 days to arrive within the United States. The Post Office strives for 2-3 day shipping for most locations with Priority Mail, but sometimes that varies. If you are closer to the west coast, the Post Office strives for 3-day shipping for Priority Mail, which may also vary. USPS First Class International Package Service arrival dates vary, depending on customs and other factors, including holiday traffic and destination. Please allow at least 2 weeks or more for international orders to arrive. International orders may be subject to customs fees from your own country as well.

(The United States Post Office also offers Priority Mail Express 1-day shipping within the United States, and I can do that for you if you let me know right away. It costs considerably more however, and I need to bill you and receive payment for extra shipping before I can ship. The Post Office also offers Priority Mail Express International 3-5 day shipping, for orders outside the United States, but again, it is very expensive, and the same applies.)

I calculate postage based on the current United States Postal Service fees, plus the cost of the box or envelope, and other packing materials, where applicable. Please feel free to contact me for an accurate shipping quote on specific combined items. If you don't see your country listed, please ask for a shipping quote, and I will look up the information for you.
