This rather glorious skunk reminds me strongly of creatures out of Edward Gorey’s illustrations…
… but he didn’t create it. Besty did.
How do I know it’s a skunk? Well, Besty says it’s a skunk, for one. For another, when you look from another angle you can see the distinctive skunk stripe:
And check out this sincere expression:
Okay, so sincere expressions are not the exclusive bailiwick of skunks, it’s true. It is, however, the most important feature of a successful stuffed animal. After all, stuffed animals are confidants and support in our dark times we cannot share with real human beings, for one reason or another. What good is an insincere confidant? He might go blabbing our darkest secrets to the cat, and then all Hades will obviously break loose!
If you’re in the market for a good, stuffed friend who will not tell on you… or just a cute squishy thing to decorate your sofa or bed, you might do a great deal worse than this adorable fellow here. And at $45.00, he’s quite reasonably priced, too.
But if your taste runs more to prints than stuffed toys, Besty has your back there, too. Take a look at this and drool. I know I did.
