Has anyone created plush toys of their characters? Seeking good recommendations for vendors. Thanks.

Hi Marjorie,

You can try https://www.budsies.com/.
They are a SharkTank company that has been pretty successful, and they have no minimum order.
I used a different company about 8 years ago, but they required a minimum order of 1000 units. 

Good luck!
Chris

I used Budsies several years back when my Fire Truck Dreams book released and the plush toy is adorable.  I used it in my school visits and the kids loved it. I only ordered the one but there are options to order more.

Here's a blog post I did on it with pictures out the final product if you like to see it. https://sharonchriscoe.wordpress.com/fire-trucks-transformation-2/fire-trucks-transformation-final-post/
