Why: Burge Wallick hand-made the adorable BreadCat plush toy for birthday presents. The gifts were so well received that she created a collection of 13 different varieties, including Cinnamon Swirl, Banana and French. BreadCat’s popularity continued to grow until Burge began receiving fan mail from collectors all over the U.S. as well as internationally. Now, there’s even a phenomenon known as a “BreadCat Birthday Party,” (and if you’re hosting one, please invite us!)
