Chris-Carl Stuffed Toys from Divisoria

Divisoria never fails to amaze me.  It's the place to be whenever you need cheap toys, supplies and knickknacks.  Cheap does, however, come with a price (pun intended), and most often than not, one finds that quality is often compromised in the quest of saving a few bucks.

There are, however, a few exceptions.  Stuffed toys from Chris-Carl are one of those.

What really caught my eye was their uncanny similarity to Forever Friends bears.  But unlike the latter which usually only comes in light brown palettes, Chris-Carl's comes in really rich colors one doesn't usually find in stuffed bears.

It's like the physical characteristics of a Forever Friends bear mingled with the rich colors of a Ty beanie baby.  Cute!

Oh!  And did I mention they're all locally made?

Larger Chris-Carl bears sell for Php75.  Already comes with the plastic case.  Smaller ones (like the white one pictured below) sell for Php100 for 3 pieces.


Chris-Carl stuffed toys also offer bigger and smaller bears than the ones pictured.  They also have other stuffed animal toys other than bears.

Don't they make great gifts and souvenirs?  J

  1. i was never fond of divisoria, even for christmas gift shopping:-(. the few times i was there i ended up feeling i didn't get my money's worth.

  2. I'm usually more picky when it comes to buying at Divisoria stalls since, yes, most of the time they are really not made to last. But I get a lot of my craft supplied there especialy when going really huge DIY projects that require a lot of raw material. =)

    @michymichymoo: It does plus it doesn't cheap. =)

  3. @Christian | Lakad Pilipinas: Lalo na malapit na Christmas. Hehehe! =)
