Big Plush's two-part blend of polyester fibers appear as a mixture of smooth fluffy puffs, that are mixed-in with heavier, denser bits of coiled polyester fibers.
The Art AND Science of Making Giant Teddy Bears is something we obsess about at Big Plush.
And nothing matters more than "how soft it is" when it comes to giant teddy bears.
And in addition to that, we also like our giant teddy bears to be heavy enough, and resilient enough, so that they "hold their shape" and "spring-back" under stress (like lots of hugging and snuggling).
Big Plush stuffed animals in the American-made category and the Stuffed in America category are hand stuffed in the USA with a two-part American-made blend of Polyester Fiber Stuffing that is meant to give it maximum softness, maximum weight and maximum resiliency.
To explain it in non-technical terms, Big Plush stuffing is made up of a combination of mostly fluffy, lightweight bits of soft stuffing, which are combined with a smaller percentage of heavier, denser, more "coiled-up" bits of stuffing. This helps to create a Big Plush stuffed animal that is not just as soft as possible - but is also heavier and more dense as a result.
Not Just Soft - But Heavy Too

Big Plush Stuffing Starts as Giant-Sized Bales of American-Made Polyester that Weigh About 600 Pounds Each
Big Plush Stuffing Starts as Giant-Sized Bales of American-Made Polyester
The stuffing inside of Big Plush giant stuffed animals starts off as huge bales of premium polyester that is Made in the USA. Each bale is inspected and then sent to be processed by two seperate machines.
These machines help to create the two different components of the polyester stuffing blend: one type is more lightweight and fluffy; the other type is more heavy and dense.
After each bale is unwrapped, it is prepared to go through the process that expands (or "fluffs-up") the polyester.
The highly compacted raw polyester fibers are fluffed-up through centrifugal force, and then mixed with a small percentage of heavier, denser polyester, to add more weight while maintaining maximum softness.
A two-part process is used to blend the stuffing that goes into Big Plush stuffed animals. The result is a stuffing that is both "fluffy" AND "heavy"..
The polyester is made entirely in the USA.
Big Plush Stuffing is Soft AND Tough.
The coiled-up bits of stuffing in the 2-Part blend of stuffing add more weight and density to the finished product.
All bears are weighed to ensure maximum correct weight and softness.
Big Plush giant teddy bears are fully stuffed in America with pride.
Big Plush stuffing is NOT lightweight stuffing that easilly collapses and "flattens-out" under stress, Instead, Big Plush stuffing is created to withstand pressure (like hugging and squeezing), while being very soft AND maintaining resilience,
Big Plush giant teddy bears are stuffed by hand, one at a time. Extra care is spent on each bear to ensure that the sections of the bear's body which traditionaly undergoe more stress receive extra amounts of stuffing. Care is also taken to ensure that the bear is not "overstuffed" in any one place.
After each bear is hand-stuffed, it's stuffing hole is sewn-up. Then all seams are inspected, and receive additional sewing reinforcement when necessary.
Big Plush giant teddy bears are weighed before being released, to ensure proper weight,
The end result is a Big Plush giant teddy bear that has had as much attention given to it's INSIDE as it's OUTSIDE.
