Sure, we all love a traditional teddy bear. But wouldn't you rather a stuffed jellyfish? A crocheted carrot? A fabulous fox or a sleepy unicorn?

When it comes to soft toys, the only limit is your imagination and nowadays there are even companies that will customise a whole family of cuddly friends for you.

Here are ten beautiful plush pals to add to your child's collection:
