Our Tummy Stuffer Review
Tummy Stuffers are essentially stuffed animal bags marketed to children as a fun way to store a variety of items.
While the concept of organization is a great thing to impart to children, the reality of Tummy Stuffers in our experience is that children tend to use them more as a backpack or purse rather than an aid in cleaning their rooms. In that respect, it’s a decent product, but there are a wide variety of stuffed animal backpacks and bags which can be found online or in stores. Keep in mind that there is no zipper or clasp, so you can’t “close” the item. Younger children may tend to drag the Tummy Stuffer around in a way that their items could fall out.
The marketing of the product, as with most toys, is aimed at making it look “fun.” Children are told that the Tummy Stuffers “eat” all of the items on their floor, and that it is a fun alternative to cleaning one’s room. With younger children, parents may want to be cautious as to what kids are “stuffing” into Tummy Stuffers. While clothing and stuffed animals are certainly acceptable, be aware that some kids may want to hide less appropriate items such as a peanut butter sandwich or a pair of mom’s scissors.
One more thought on the “organization” angle: It can be argued that shoving everything into a bag isn’t really teaching organization. Should your child want to find something placed in this bag, they may very well have to remove everything to find it.
At 13 inches in size, Tummy Stuffers seemed smaller in person than they did on television. Construction-wise, Tummy Stuffers appear to be relatively well-made.
When you call to order Tummy Stuffers, customer service will attempt to up-sell you in two ways. You’ll be offered to purchase a “giant” Tummy Stuffer which cannot be purchased separately, but as an add-on to the 13″ product. They’ll also offer to “expedite” shipping. We’ve had several complaints about extremely slow shipping, and this upgraded “expedited” shipping doesn’t seem to improve delivery time over the regular time.
There is no order confirmation page, and because of this some consumers have accidentally placed two orders, which they found frustrating to cancel.
There are several characters available:
- Pink Cat (formerly called “Kitty”)
Below is a transcript of the television commercial for Tummy Stuffers:
“Honey make sure your room is clean.”
Tummmy Stuffers! (music)
Here’s a really big surprise! Tummy Stuffers eat everything right before your eyes.
A secret place to hide your stuff. They never seem to get enough. Yummy!
Tummy Stuffers just can’t get enough of all the nick-nacks on your floor. Or blankets and pillows. Tummy stuff more. Stuff for school. Hey is that drool? No it’s a sock. Cool! A baseball glove, uniform and hat. All sorts of things, but not a cat. (Not yummy.)
Socks, belts, and underwear. Sweaters all fit in there.
Keep stuffing their bellies until it shows. Give ’em ties and suits. They’re soft, cuddly, and really cute. Tummy Stuffers eat lots and lots, just not your brother’s sweaty socks. (Not yummy!). And here’s a little Tummy Stuffer hint: They’ll eat your clean clothes but no dryer lint (Not yummy).
You don’t need to get a broom. Tummy Stuffers’ll clean your room.
There’s almost nothing they won’t like. But don’t worry, they won’t eat your lunch (Not yummy)
Pack them for a trip. They eat all your things quick.
Take them out and show them off. Too much stuff will make them rock.
And when it’s time to go to sleep, their super-soft tummies are a comfy treat. You can log on or call on the phone to get a Tummy Stuffer of your very own. You can choose Monkey, Ladybug, Dog, Unicorn, Gator, or Cat for $19.99 plus $8.99 processing and handling.
You can get a Tummy Stuffer just for you and you can get a mini Stuffer too, free with your paid order. Can’t get enough? Find out about the Giant Tummy Stuffers that hold even more stuff. Must be 18 or older to order.
Tummy Stuffers is a stuffed animal bag of average quality and size. The way in which it is used will vary from child to child. The incredibly slow shipping process is a frustration that can be avoided by shopping for similar products at a local retailer.
