Introducing Cuddle Clones

Facebook seems to be a great place to find new and interesting companies. I discovered (the now discontinued) Makies there, then the recently discussed Dolls from Heaven and now this company– Cuddle Clones. With a vision of “Happy Pets, Happy People” and a mission “to capture the emotional connection between people and their pets”, Cuddle Clones creates one of a kind plush replica’s of your beloved four legged friends. Based on a provided photo and other facts, such as ear/tail position and distinguishing marks, Cuddle Clones can make a huggable, customized plush clone of your favorite pets, whether they’re cats, dogs, horses, guinea pigs, rabbits or other large and small animal creatures. (See examples here! Click ‘View By’ to see all their different kinds of creations– they’ve even made a chicken!) A portion of the cost of your Cuddle Clone is set aside for animal related charities.

If plush clones aren’t your thing, you can also order a customized figurines, slippers and more traditional memorials. (See examples here of Cuddle Clones Custom Figurines.) Being a pet parent myself, I love the story behind this company. The company was started by Jennifer Williams, who was inspired by her love for her Great Dane, Rufus. When he passed, she decided it was time to see if she could make an idea she had a few years prior, of immortalizing Rufus in plush form, into a reality. Shortly after, Cuddle Clones was born.

From the promo photos, it looks like Cuddle Clones is doing a great job and is definitely making special memories for pet owners. I did something similar with one of my pets, Sammi. Since she was a pure bred Golden Retriever, it was pretty simple for me to get a ‘clone’ of her from MyTwinn (before the company went downhill). Cuddle Clones seems to take that a step further by adding the element of customization.

Besides cloning your four legged friends, they also sell plush creations of your own unique creatures (examples) or lost toys from the past with their Plush Replacement service. See all their products here.

    I have been watching this company for a while and since we have a “mutt puppy” I have thought about getting one of these. I know the day will come when he will pass away and my little girl will want to remember him forever and this would be a good way to remember him. Plus, they seem to do an amazing job of replicating the animals. I wonder about their process? Where are the animals made again? Are they handsewn? Machine?

      I don’t know all the answers, but their FAQ says this about location, “Cuddle Clones are made at our 100%-owned small workshop located in the city of Dongguan in China’s Guangdong province. Our workshop currently has many very talented designers and support employees and it is a very nice little place. Locating our workshop in China provides huge advantages such as highly skilled labor in the area of plush design and the proximity to raw plush materials, which means that we can offer Cuddle.” http://www.cuddleclones.com/faq.html

    I don’t know….some are better than others; some look pretty generic. If you don’t capture the expression of the pet the selling point of a cloned memorial is lost.

      The photos they sent for the post don’t really look as good as some of the owner submitted ones. I noticed that when posting. But, those are the ones they went for.
