Spotlight on “Big Eye Dummies” (Giveaway)




Your browser may not support display of this image. Big Eye Dummies are designer plush dolls with interchangeable eyes and mouths. Each doll comes with 2 sets of eyes and mouths, along with its own back story. Big Eye Dummies are approved for all ages but recommended for 2 and up. The eyes and mouths come gently sewn down. To start playing, simply cut and remove the threads . . . and the mix ‘n match fun begins!

Big Eye Dummies are designed and created in New 
York City by David Lipson, a dumdum himself since 
the 2nd grade and a professional Animation Producer and Director who has worked on TV shows, including Word World (PBS), Lizzie McGuire (Disney Channel), Schoolhouse Rock (Disney), and shorts for Sesame Street (PBS).

Big Eye Dummies are awarding winning, too! They received Creative Child Magazine’s Preferred Choice Award.

Says David: “Big Eye Dummies offer several major innovations to the plush doll market, such as using high quality thread to hold them together instead of staples or nails. Another breakthrough was filling them with fluffy soft stuffing instead of rocks or bricks. Focus testing has shown that these improvements seem to really enhance the ‘cuddle and snuggle’ factor for children.”

But seriously now, independent laboratories in America test all products, and comply with the European and American Toy Safety Standards (EN-71, ASTM F963). The dolls retail for $19.99 and can be purchased at



When I first learned of Big Eye Dummies with their interchangeable eyes and mouths...I was like “What?”. I never really had thought of the concept of designer plush toys. I figured that a Slicka_webstuffed animal was a stuffed animal! Since I have TWO girls….I knew I would always have a gazillion stuffed animals in my home. Plain and simple!

But I have to remember that my girls are not your average frilly little girls….they love dirt and adventure. Mischief and mayhem is definitely in their DNA. When our new friend, Slicka, arrived at the door…they were in  heaven. He is a fun, lovable stuffed animal that was also rough and tumble.   Each Big Eye Dummie comes with 2 sets of eyes and mouths that are removable and interchangeable.

All mom has to do to get them ready for play  is cut the strings that attach the eyes and mouth to the toy when it first arrives. Slicka was hilarious to play with. Each child had to share wtih me their “Slicka” look as they would change its eyes and mouth. I only wished that the toy has a zippered pouch inside his body so that you could store his extra eyes and mouth. Other then that…Big Eye Dummies are fun, entertaining, appealing and well thought out. Big Eye Dummies will appeal to the frillist of little girls and the most rough and tumble of little boys.

David Lipson (creator of Big Eye Dummies) has a lot of vision and creativity. You can see it in his line of toys as well as line of robots. The robots are phenomenal. Check it out “here”.

My girls love to use their imagination. Slicka is definitely one of those toys that took us beyond our imagination and left the doors open wide for adventure!
