You can love them, pet them, and take them anywhere! Tiger stuffed animals come in all shapes and sizes, and each one has a unique pattern of stripes – just like real tigers!

Tiger plushie characteristics

Tiger plushies strongly resemble cat, panther, leopard, and lion plushies. What sets them apart most is their color scheme, combining orange with black and white. Additionally, like pandas and sloths, tigers feature two large circles around their eyes. The fur of stuffed animal tigers ranges in color from light brown or yellow to deep orange and red.

Bill Watterson’s Hobbes from the daily American comic strip Calvin and Hobbes (1985-1995) is one of the most famous fictional tigers who can still be found in plushie form today.

Of course, Walt Disney Studios has created its fair share of tigers as well. First came Shere Khan, the main antagonist of Disney's The Jungle Book (1967), which was based on Rudyard Kipling's 1894 book of the same name. Though there are some Shere Khan stuffed animals out there, but the male tiger is overshadowed in popularity by his female sibling Rajah from Aladdin (1992), who had many different plushies modeled after her.

By far the most popular tiger-turned-plushie is Tigger, a toy tiger introduced in A. Milne’s 1928 story collection The House at Pooh Corner. The animated Disney-version of the character, which most Tigger plushies are based on, was introduced in Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968).
