Chances are, your favorite clothing brand makes a stuffed animal — and it’s far more luxurious than you’d expect. Many brands offer limited-edition plush toys including Polo Ralph Lauren, The Real McCoy’s and The Elder Statesman. Far from regular, these wild creatures are made from indulgent materials like cashmere, horsehide and fine-pebbled Italian leather. They feature patchwork constructions, hand-dyed fabrics and hand-sewn detailing. As such, they’re far more expensive than the stuffed animals of your childhood. But if you’re looking for a unique gift this holiday season, or you want to upgrade your desk ephemera, these are unexpectedly opulent.
Small Flag-Sweater Polo Bear by Polo Ralph Lauren $85
Handcrafted Horsehide Pig by The Real McCoy’s $165
Toy Octopus by Kapital ~$179
Flamingo Teddy by The Elder Statesman $515
Hector Dog Bag by Thom Browne $2,600
