I think these Happy Turtles might have been part of a summer theme at Starbucks one year. I can’t really remember for sure. Anyway, one tag says 2006, and one tag says 2007, so I’m not sure which year they are from. They are really cute at any rate. They are probably four inches tall, and the red one has flowers, eyelashes, and antennae while the green one has more traditional turtle decorations. I think the red one might be some kind of turtle dressed as a lady bug. There may have been other accessories with these turtles, but I’m not certain.
Occasionally Starbucks puts out a plushie that isn’t a bear, but is still super cute. In 2006 they put out this bunny that holds a carrot sack. In the sack was a lemon sugar cookie that (I assure you) tasted oh-so-delicious! This bunny is super soft and has a pink nose, ears and feet. I think maybe I should put some candies in the carrot sack this year! Click the pic to enlarge. 🙂
These cute critters were part of the Holiday 2006 line. The snowman is all decked out with a fine winter cap and scarf and he is holding onto the snow puppy with his stick arms and a red leash. The snow puppy is detachable, but can be reattached by sticking him onto the snowman where there is velcro. Great for holiday decorating scenes and cute as can be! Click the photos to enlarge. 🙂
