Have you seen the sequin craze? You can buy almost anything with reversible sequins now, from clothing to pillows. Kids love flipping the sequins back and forth to reveal different designs and make patterns, so someone brilliant applied the same technique to stuffed animals.
You can get lots of options with reversible sequins. Two of my three kids have added Shimmeez, a particular brand of sequin stuffed toys, to their wish lists, and the third will take one if it happens to show up (though it doesn’t beat out the live animals or tiny Lego sets for priority).
But even if you don’t want one of the eight inch tall round animals that Shimmeez offers (pig, owl, lamb, unicorn, dog, and just to keep it interesting, narwhal) or the bigger 14 inch animals (bear, cat, and another unicorn and owl), you can get many other brand or types of animal. Have a kid who loves Beanie Boos? You can get them with reversible sequins. Grandkid loves snakes? We’ve got just the thing to give. How about a dinosaur? Dinosaurs sport sequins just as lovely as any other creature.
Whatever you need, type in the name with reversible sequins and see what comes up. But I bet with the trend hitting a high point during the gift giving season, you can find lots of things with a flip side.
