Identifying a Stuffed Cow

I've had this cow since I was about 2 or three (I'm almost 21 for reference), and I have no idea what brand it is. I got it from an old daycare teacher as a birthday present and love him, but have never had any info on him since his tags have been long gone. He's made of terrycloth and is the size of a regular pillow so he's pretty big. If anyone knows anything it'd be really helpful! Thanks!

Is there a possibility he is handmade? There were several patterns in the late 1990s for body pillow plush. Simplicity had one as did Kwik Sew. They all may have, but I remember these two and they are similar, but not exactly like yours. That is the thing if it is home made, you may never find an exact match as we people who sew love to gussy up our projects!!

There were a few name brands that used the Googly (PingPong ball style eyes) like Gund used some and so did Playskool), but I don't remember either making the body pillows...but I have an old memory.

Terry clothe was popular for the home seamstresses of the day. Npt many of the big name brands used terrycloth.

Are the eyes glued or stitched?

If no one on this site can ID him, perhaps someone can name him (if he is a store bought brand) on the Facebook site called Doll & Toy Identification Help.

You have to ask to join and they are a lovely group of folks!

Post back what you learn!!! Thanks for sharing!

Gund and Applause were popular at that time. I would send that picture to each company.

I remember seeing patterns for Buddy & sleep pillows in the 90's but just never got around to making one. I usually saw these when looking for boy's Halloween costume patterns.

You may be able to find a vintage pattern but it is doubtful but you can ask about your cow on these sites and someone may have an answer (and I could be all wrong about it being handmade).

Just check out how to post your pictures.
