Cuddly toys and stuffed animals have an eternal appeal for kids.

Cute, plush, comforting, it's hard to go wrong. There are plenty of stuffed toys on the market, and they come in all shapes and sizes, so it can sometimes be a challenge knowing where to go for your perfect stuffed animal.

Thankfully, we've picked the best giant teddy bears available - and some of them truly are big (think over six feet tall), so be sure that the recipient of your gift has enough space to keep their new cuddly friend! When thinking about wrapping them, it's unlikely you'll get wrapping paper around a giant teddy bear's shape, so consider using some ribbon and a nice bow to add a dash of colour to the present.

If teddy bears aren't quite your thing, we've also recommended the best Peter Rabbit toys too, and if you know any unicorn lovers, we've checked out the best unicorn onesies available. They'll add a touch of magic and sparkle to any bedtime.

Our Top Choice

KIDADL TOP PICK

Jumbo Brown Teddy Bear - Dunelm

Jumbo Brown Teddy Bear - Dunelm

We love this teddy bear because of the plush fabric with which it's made, making this a super soft and cosy friend to have around on chilly winter evenings. It's also great value for money, and we particularly like that it's a darker brown colour, as most teddy bears available tend to be a paler sand or beige colour. The dark brown makes this teddy bear look more like its real life counterparts, the Grizzly Bear, but we're certain this big toy is a better pal to have around the house. Be aware that it's hand wash only.

  • Price: £20
  • Ages: Suitable for kids from birth up

Best Giant Teddy Bear For Families On A Budget

Snuggle Buddies 100cm Teddy Bear - The Entertainer Toy Shop

Snuggle Buddies 100cm Teddy Bear - The Entertainer Toy Shop

There will be hugs galore handed out by this big ol' fluffy, squidgy, teddy bear, so this is a great gift option for kids who are particularly tactile and love to get cosy with their toys. Their new pal will stand at 100cm tall, which is significantly bigger than any other stuffed animals they may have, ensuring the bear is a unique, memorable gift. This also means that he's likely to be slightly too big for the washing machine, so be sure to stress that hand washes are best after mucky adventures. We're sold.

  • Ages: Suitable for kids from 12 months and over

Best Cuddly Giant Teddy Bear

Giant Bear Toy - The White Company

Giant Bear Toy - The White Company

We're so taken by this big teddy bear that we may well have to purchase one for ourselves. Super-soft fake fur has a plush and luxurious hand feel, and the fact that his body is filled with beans makes the teddy satisfyingly squidgy and malleable, so he's great as either a cuddle companion or a pillow. A favourite for little ones - and slightly more grown ones - alike. Best of all, he's machine washable, so can easily recover from any accidents or muddy adventures.

  • Price: £96
  • Ages: We recommend for kids from 12 months and over

Best Personalised Giant Teddy Bear

Personalised Super Soft Large Bear Soft Toy - My 1st Years

The fact that this lovely teddy bear can be personalised is the icing on the cake, making it a truly unique gift for kids of any age, and a present that they are likely to treasure for years to come. Add up to eight characters to the left foot of the teddy for free, and watch as kids fall in love with their new plush pal. Plus, because the teddy is made of 100% cotton, it's machine washable at 30 degrees, making it easy breezy for his new parents to keep him clean.

Best Tempur Giant Teddy Bear

Tempur Plush Pillow Bear - Tempur

Tempur Plush Pillow Bear - Tempur

Tempur is a truly luxurious fabric. It has visco-elastic cells that mould and adapt to the shape of each individual's body,  making it extra squashy and therefore super comfortable, providing unparalleled support and comfort. This teddy bear pillow is an adorable way to both gain a new best friend and have a fabulously huggable pillow. When folded flat, the teddy can be used just like a supportive pillow, but folded up, you have a plush teddy bear. What's not to love?
