A couple of days ago the Kensington Palace released a few pictures of Princess Charlotte and her mother Kate Middleton. Both were looking very happy and smiling. Princess Charlotte was especially happy in a picture of hew new favorite stuffed animal friend.
The stuffed toy is called a Fuddlewuddle, Today reports. It is made by the British toy company Jellycat and it is offered in several different sizes with prices varying from $16 to $45. Princess Charlotte’s version in particular is a $27one medium sized.
The photos were taken by Charlotte’s mom, the Duchess of Cambridge herself, in early November at their home in Norfolk, marking the first pictures of Charlotte to be made public since her christening in July. “The Duke and Duchess continue to receive warm messages about Princess Charlotte from all around the world and they hope that everyone enjoys these lovely photos as much as they do,” the Palace said in a news release.
We’ve seen many fashion brands experience the so-called Kate-effect. This is when she wears something and then it immediately turns into a shopping hit for many women. Would the Fuddlewuddle experience a Princess Charlotte-effect? We think so. Princess Charlotte is a hot topic in Britain and already has a ton of fans. So most of then would be rushing to get a Fuddlewuddle, too. Plus, the stuffed dog is quite cute.
Jellycat was founded in 1999 by brothers William and Thomas Gatacre. The goal of the company is to “quirky, original and innovative soft toys for all ages”. The name, the company says, comes from a child: “The name Jellycat was dreamt up by a child who loved jellies and cats and giggled at the thought of the two together. The silliness of the name was a great reflection of the design and so it stuck!”
