Cuddle Up With A Super Soft Flamingo, Hippo, Llama, Ostrich or Tiger That Arrives In A Tube, Perfect For Gift Giving Or Just Because

Holy Springs, NC (September 8, 2020) — What do celebs Angelina Jolie, Whoopi Goldberg and Vanessa Paradis have in common besides fame and fortune? They are fans of the whimsical French toy line Les Déglingos. Translated into English as “The Wackos”, this beloved European plush collection uses corduroy fabric to create crazy creatures. Now American families can find them at independent toy and specialty retail shops stateside thanks to importer TriAction Toys.

Big Simply Hippipos the Hippo in Tube ($19.99) is one of five animal characters that will soothe and enchant tots. The corduroy softness is one feature that kids will cherish from birth to freshman orientation! It may be hard to choose one among Flamingo, Ostrich, Tiger or Llama as each plush pal offers its own charm.

“Les Déglingos was founded in early 2007 by Laurent Manceron in France,” explains TriAction Toys’ Chris Cofoni. “Laurent’s idea was to bring very innovative and funky designs to the market, steering away from the common pastel plush toys available at the time. He was the first designer to design plush using corduroy and the material’s success in the plush toy market has been imitated widely since.”

If any of the five characters look familiar it may be their cameo appearances on many movie sets and the TV series Modern Family.

Hip, hip hooray for Hippipos the Hippo. He arrives a bit disheveled with one X eye and two different colored ears but that’s what makes him wacky! Kids just think he’s loveable.

Hot pink is one notable feature of Flamingos the Flamingo. With his long beak and chic neck scarf, this plush pal will get plenty of ooohs and aaahs from family and friends.

Big Simply Llama in TubeBig Simply Llama in Tube
The first thing you notice about Muchachos the Llama is his long dark ears on the tube and in person. There’s so much to adore about this two-tone pet that comes dressed in a poncho.

Big Simply Ostrich in TubeBig Simply Ostrich in Tube
Bonjour Pomolos the Ostrich! With a tuff of white hair and wide nose beak, this bird may not be able to fly but can rise to any adventure!

Big Simply Tiger in TubeBig Simply Tiger in Tube
Speculos the Tiger is ready for a ride in the car or is happy to cuddle and purr with his young human. Instead of stripes he sports a spotted bow tie.

Ideal for baby shower, holiday and birthday giving, the decorative “tube” packaging is just as appealing as the plush tucked inside. Artistic drawings of each animal face mimic their unique characters. Look for Pomelos the Ostrich’s wide eyes and pink beak or Speculos the Tiger’s pink nose and white furry ears.

Like all well-loved playthings, sometimes dirt and spills happen. Moms will appreciate that The Déglingos are machine washable in cold/warm water and have no parts that present a choking hazard. Each product is tested to comply with European regulations (EN71), USA regulations (ASTM) and REACH (AZO for colorants in the fabrics).

To be part of importer TriAction group of offerings, a line must be of the utmost quality, be fairly priced and have a unique texture or tactile element! Look for these five corduroy pals, each priced at $19.99 and for age newborn+, in specialty stores now.
