Hug harder, smile bigger! is BUG-O-DILE’s motto. Designing plush that both ensures a happy feeling and beautifys life is my passion. Before I started sewing animal plush, I was a traveller and an animal photographer. The things I saw and learned during those years made me want to give something back to wildlife.

With BUG-O-DILE plush I want to bring animals into your home and raise awareness of the importance of protecting wildlife and their habitats. This is why my plush supports conservation efforts, especially for amphibians.

I see amphibians as fascinating creatures because of their interesting lifestyle and variety of colors. Unfortunately many people find them scary or nasty, but don’t know how important these animals are in our society.

The on-going efforts of the Amphibian Survival Alliance (ASA) in protecting amphibians and educating others in a positive way is something I am proud to support.

Cuddle the world more beautiful! The first plush animals went online last March and the collection is continuing to grow. By adopting a reptile or amphibian plush you help ASA save amphibians because 10% of the proceeds will be donated to ASA.
