Flash Post: Friends With Benefits

My Friend Huggles


What It Is: A line of life-sized plush dolls, each with its own character-building ‘trait’, unique look, and a heart badge where the lucky owner can sign their name to pledge their friendship. Purchasing any of the dolls makes for extra fun through a product-based interactive website to inspire kids to make their offline play more virtuous – challenging them to come up with activities to show their kindness or generosity. The line, called My Friend Huggles, comes from a Canadian company and really takes their motto of inspiring kids to heart – they actually donate dolls to Make-A-Wish chapters across the nation, so young girls can have a close friend to see them through trying times.

Who It’s For: Your daughter, as a sweet Valentine’s gift. Your niece, along with a porcelain tea set, as a precious birthday present. Your local child-based charity or daycare, along with some fresh clothes, as a donation with meaning (and fun).

What It Costs: Each doll’s list price is $44.99

Where It’s At: You can email My Friend Huggles for a current list of retailers (I know Lawtons on the East Coast carries) them, or buy a selection of the dolls on Amazon.

    What Lawtons did you see these in? I haven’t been able to find them.

    What a sweet idea. I really appreciate that this company gives children dolls through the Make a Wish Foundation too.
