The ever popular Dr Seuss was a very prolific children's author publishing over sixty books. With this number of books he also created a large number of very memorable and lovable characters which live on in the memories of children and adults alike. The good news, for Dr Seuss fans, is that there are a large number of Dr Seuss Plush Toys based upon his characters available including favorites such as Sam-I-Am, Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, Horton the Elephant and many others.

This page features the Dr Seuss Plush Toys that are currently available and contains a little information on the books they are based upon.

The Cat In The Hat - Funny Tricks, Mischief And Naughty "Things"

The Cat in the Hat is almost certainly the most recognizable of Dr Seuss's creations and definitely one of the ones who is most fun to read about. I have to confess to being a bit worried about the behavior of the Cat and Thing One and Thing Two while the mother of the two children is out of the house. However, the silly tricks that he performs and the games that the Things play make them some of the most loved Dr Seuss characters by children and adults alike.

The Cat in the Hat also appears in a second book, entitled: The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.

The following Dr Seuss Plush Toys are all based on characters that appear in the story "The Cat in the Hat".

Here he is, your own Cat in the Hat plush toy for kids who love this classic Dr Seuss story of tricks, fun, mischief and mayhem.

The Cat is a very popular character and this medium-sized plush toy is just the right size for children to hug and relive their favorite moments from this silly and naughty cat.

There are other sizes of this plush toy available but I prefer this medium-sized version which is big enough to be a nice feature in a child's room but not too big to hug.

The Sneetches - Tolerance Of Others Is Taught By Dr Seuss

The Sneetches is one of the most allegorical and thought-provoking of all the books written by Dr Seuss.

Two clans of strange creatures have created a huge social divide within their society but the only way that the poor can be differentiated from the elite is the lack of a star upon the belly. These two castes of Sneetches are fooled equally by the populist policy providing Sylvester McMonkey McBean but eventually the Sneetches learn that stars do not matter.

Below you can see a star-belly Sneetch plush toy which can be purchased on Amazon.com.

This soft Star-belly Sneetch with his cute smile is a cuddly companion for children (and maybe adults?) who are big fans of the wonderful Dr Seuss story "The Sneetches". Beware of being too proud of your star belly, though, and if a trickster like Sylvester McMonkey McBean comes your way, it is best to run of to bed with this lovable plush toy rather than engage on star-on, star-off shenanigans.

For those readers who have been truly won over by the silly Sneetches, this plush toy is a great find and makes a perfect gift for Sneetch-lovers of all ages.

This plush toy is one of my favorites on here as I loved the way my father used to read the story, and even my mother wants one - at least I know what I can get her for Christmas.

      I'm surprised there's no Zillow stuffed toy (from Wocket in my Pocket). Seems like it would be a winner with kids at night. After all "The zillow on my pillow always helps me fall asleep!"
