The Most Popular Plushies on Instagram

United by the Instagram account The Instaplushies, the Instagram plushie community counts roughly 20,000 accounts worldwide. Every day, thousands of stuffed animals use the platform to share their adventures with the world. Some travel the globe, others help their humans in the house, or serve as mascots for human programs or events, such as the space programme. But who are the most celebrated, most popular plushies out there? Which plushie accounts should you follow? We’ve constructed a small list, arranged by the amount of followers the accounts have.
