Puffkins were introduced by Swibco back in 1997. People were into buying and collecting cute little plush animals, and the Ty Beanies were very popular. So, Swibco came out with a little line of cute collectibles called Puffkins. They retired the first edition Puffkins in 2002 and introduced the Series 2 Puffkins in 2007. These are all First Edition Puffkins. Some have the original dark tags. These are mint and have never been played with. We have categorized our Puffkins as: Australian, Barnyard, Bears, Birds, Dogs and Cats, Fish, Forest, Frogs, Holidays, Insects, Jungle, Lizards, and Novelties.
