Plusharoos are small, cuddly stuffed animals for kids that you can decorate yourself. Available in a variety of colors, they're suitable for both boys and girls. There are six different Plusharoo characters available to be made, including the kitty, owl, dog, bear, butterfly, and fish, so you can create the entire group if you like. Within each kit, you'll get one blank Plusharoo pet, stick-on eyes, some fabric swatches that you can use to decorate the pet, and a popping wand to help you do so. The fabric swatches come in fluffy, crinkly, and sparkly varieties, and are easy to attach to the pet by using the wand.

The Claim

Kids will have a good time decorating their Plusharoo stuffed animals with various attractive, eye-catching fabric swatches, and they won't find this task too difficult to handle. Once they choose a Plusharoo character to create, and have popped in all the fabric swatches they desire, they can add eyes in order to really turn the pet into a special friend. After that, they can have a great deal of fun playing with the pet. The pet can accompany them on car rides, keep them company while they're in bed or studying, and even go outside with them. If they want to change the look of their new friend, the decorative fabric swatches are easy to pop out and switch around, too.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Plusharoos is $19.99 plus $6.99 shipping, for a total price of $26.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Plusharoos being discontinued. Plusharoos may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How It Works

To decorate your blank Plusharoo pet, you’ll need to use the included Plusharoo popping wand in order to stick the included fabric swatches into the blank pet’s pre-cut pockets. Once you pop them in with the wand, they will stay inside these pockets securely until you want to change your pet’s look, and then you can easily pop them out. After you’ve added all the fabric swatches you wish to, the eyes are easy to add to the pet, as they simply stick on right on top of the swatches.


  1. Bed Buddy
  2. Just like a standard stuffed animal, you can give your Plusharoo pet a home in your bed, so it can keep you company as you sleep. Although the Plusharoos are smaller than many teddy bears, they are still large enough to cuddle. They are especially comforting on trips away from home, as they can reduce any homesick feelings you may have as you lie in an unfamiliar bed.

  3. Daytime Company
  4. Each Plusharoo will also make a great friend to keep beside you as you engage in quiet activities during the day, such as studying, reading, or watching television. They’ll stay quiet, so they won’t interrupt as you concentrate on your book or program.

  5. Vehicle Rides
  6. To help ease boredom on any car ride, long or short, you can bring your Plusharoo pet along with you to talk to, sing to, or cuddle. It’ll also double as a little pillow if you get tired.

  7. Playing Outside
  8. Plusharoo pets also make great entertainment outdoors. You can make the butterfly fly through the air, or perch the owl in your favorite tree. However, you should take note that the Plusharoo fish, unlike real ones, does not do well in water.

  9. Decorating Bedroom
  10. Your Plusharoo pet will also look attractive hanging up in your bedroom as a decoration. If you’ve got more than one pet, you can devote a whole section of your wall to pretty Plusharoos. Wise owls may look great running along the top by your ceiling, as rainbow fish swim along below. When you want to play with the toys again, you can just take them down.

Positive Points

  • No Glue Required
  • Many children’s crafts can get messy, if they require the use of glue. Bottled white glue is especially likely to end up everywhere, including on the kids’ clothing and nearby furniture. Plusharoos, however, do not require the use of any glue for assembly at all.

  • Sewing Not Necessary
  • Kids often find crafts that require sewing difficult, and even the plastic needles that often come in children’s craft kids can be dangerous for the smallest kids. WIth Plusharoos, no one will be required to sew, though, as the popping wand will simply pop each piece of fabric into each pet.

  • Reusable
  • If you get tired of a certain Plusharoo, you won’t have to buy a new kit in order to create a new one. You can simply use the popping wand to pop the pieces of fluffy, shiny, or crinkly fabric out of the Plusharoo, and then get back to work making a new character.

I placed my order 2 days ago. Card has not been charged, no shipment details, nothing! I received a confirmation email with order #, but there is nothing on the website to check the status of your order. I emailed customer care yesterday and still no response. I DO NOT recommend!

I ordered my Plusharoos a month ago and my debit card hasn't been charged and I don't have my order yet. I can't find a phone number. The customer service web site doesn't activate.

I tried again today and their e-mail address which is listed on their site is dismantled. I don't think I'm ever going to receive it. At least I haven't been charged. I'm thinking this is a rip-off. DO NOT buy.
