Accessory makers are churning out plushies — small stuffed animals or characters — so fast that even the most serious fanatic can't keep up. While I don't see any purpose in collecting regular plushies, I have fallen for the cell phone holders, which make fun desktop accessories.
I'm currently in love with the Plushie cell phone holder by Bale Living. It comes in pink, blue, green and orange and costs 4.95.
Most plushies are inexpensive so when it comes to purchasing one you should pick bright colors that will add a youthful flare to your desktop and cheer you up. If you get sick of it you can always get a new one, or pass it on to a kid. Check out the widget of my favorite plushies below.
