Wrinkles Retro Toy
Remembering Wrinkles the Toy Dog
Wrinkles was a puppet/ plush toy dog popular in the 1980s.
I've had my Ganz Bros. Heritage Collection Wrinkles since I was six years old. I don't remember who gave Wrinkles to me (Mom says it was either Santa or her).
Wrinkles is tattered and a tad dirty. She's lost her cute hair bands that went around each ear, her cute dress and underwear, but not her sparkle. My Wrinkles toy dog has been with me for over twenty years, and I will probably keep her forever. She is the one toy that I kept, and for some strange reason brings me comfort. Maybe Wrinkles reminds me of the innocent days of childhood or maybe something else. If you read further you will learn more about Wrinkles the cute 80's retro stuffed animal.

How to Clean Your Wrinkles - Make Wrinkles Look His/Her Best
If you want to keep your Wrinkles in good condition you need to take care of Wrinkles much like you would a real dog. Well, you would not have to feed him or maybe that's the exact reason you have to clean him.
My Wrinkles had never been cleaned and has accumilated a lot of stains and wear and tear so it was about time she had a bath. My first impulse was to throw her in the washer, until someone told me I was nuts. Determined I was taking the right course of action I set out to research how to clean Wrinkles and to prove I had the right idea.
What I found out was that I was wrong. Puttng your Wrinkles in the washer and dryer is not a good idea. You could try it but it was supposed to be a last resort because Wrinkles could be destroyed in the wash. It was not recommended for people's favorite stuffed toys.
