A jet setting llama, travelling the world, visiting the world’s most high-end travel destinations.
The Lego Backpacker
Though not officially a plushie, the little guy is one of Instagram’s most avid toy travelers.
Martin the Bear
Martin keeps a pilot as a pet, which allows him to see the world from above more than any other teddy bear!
Iggy the Piggy
Self-described as “cute, but naughty”, this relaxed Russian pig resides in Moscow.
So proud to be able to put Fluffy himself on this list! Fluffy has allowed us to travel with him for quite a few years, which earned him the following description: “a small leopard in a big world: from undiscovered Europe to the volcanic valleys of Sumatra, Fluffy has been travelling around the world for over a decade.”
Private is a true sushi connoisseur who would travel the whole world just to get his fins on some delicious salmon nigiri.
Chip the Bear
Chip’s fame extends beyond Instagram: he’s the star of the books Chip to the Rescue and Chip Goes to Art School.
Horst the Unicorn
Unicorn Horst lives in Bremen with his mother Steffi. His German heritage makes him a descendant of the original teddy bear.

Once this little fox sets out on an adventure, all his friends follow! Au happily shares his daily life with his followers, giving us some insight into what keeps a fox plushie occupied.
Miss Tipsy Cat Bose
This little cat has been travelling around the world for over 30 years, making her a senior citizen in the world of travel plushies.
Konker the Hedgehog
This British critter loves the outdoors and frequently sits down to watch a good film.
