PALAEOPLUSHIES IS MOVING! If you've found your way here somehow, you need to head on over to

Mini Beanie "Weather Loach" Misgurnus anguillicaudatus handmade plush toy

Only 4 left in stock


This plush is made of custom printed minky fabric to my own design, sewn and stuffed with polyester stuffing. These plushies use rice inside to make them floppy and give them weight - please keep them away from moisture! They have plastic metallic safety eyes and nylon barbels. These plushies come in two slight variations and you will receive one at random. If you order more than one, I will do my best to select different ones for you.

These plushies will come with a certificate of authenticity, detailling their species, the date they were made and proving that they are an original Palaeoplushie handmade in Scotland by Rebecca Groom.

As this is a hand made item, it is not intended for children and is designed to be an art piece for adults. As they are stitched by machine, they won't fall apart if handled roughly but have not passed the relevant safety standards to be sold as a child's toy.

Plushie Dimensions: 22cm long
Description: Misgurnus anguillicaudatus is a species of loach native to East Asia. These fish are popular in the aquarium hobby and can grow to around 30cm. The name "Weather Loach" comes from their ability to detect changes in barometric pressure, to which they react with excited behaviours.
