The original Huggy Buddha toy is 25 cm tall (9.8 inches) and gray. It was designed by Sandra de Vries at Big Buddha in Voorburg, the Netherlands.
Huggy Buddha inventor Sandra de Vries says, "I just had this idea: to give my first grandchild a soft Buddha, for a happy life. It seemed so obvious to me. But I found out that no one before me had ever thought about it. So I decided to create it myself. Not only for my grandchild, but for every child and person in the World."
The full Gund Huggy Buddha plush line is also available on Amazon.com.
