Can I Take Plushies To The Beach?

Summer beckons, and the beach is calling.

If you're a plushie enthusiast like us at Wakaii, you might be wondering: is it a good idea to bring your cuddly friend along?

Let's dive into the details.

The Fun and the Furry

Taking a plushie to the beach can be a delightful experience.

Imagine the adorable photoshoot opportunities with the sun, sand, and sea as your backdrop!

However, there are some considerations to keep in mind:

1) Size Matters

Opt for a smaller plushie. It's easier to manage and less likely to accumulate a lot of sand.

2) Fur Considerations

Plushies with less fur are ideal. They're easier to clean and won't trap as much sand.

Sun, Sand, and Safety

While plushies can be great beach companions, it's essential to ensure their safety (and yours):

1) Avoid Prolonged Sun Exposure

Just as the sun can be harmful to our skin, it can also fade and damage the fabric of plushies. Keep them under an umbrella or in the shade.

2) Wet Sand Woes

 If your plushie gets covered in wet sand, rinse it off with fresh water.

Occasional dips in the sea are okay, but remember to wash them thoroughly afterward.

3) Stuffing Safety

Avoid plushies stuffed with pellets or non-fabric materials.

These can retain moisture and become breeding grounds for mold.

Cleaning and Care Post-Beach

After a fun day at the beach, it's essential to give your plushie some TLC:

  • Machine Wash: Ensure your plushie is machine washable (if not, check out our blog below). This will help remove any residual sand and saltwater.
  • Dry Thoroughly: Ensure your plushie is completely dry before storing it. This prevents mold growth and keeps your plushie fresh for the next adventure.

Activities to Enjoy with Your Plushie at the Beach

The beach isn't just about sunbathing and swimming.

With your plushie by your side, there are numerous activities to make your day even more memorable:

1. Plushie Picnic

Prepare a mini picnic setup for your plushie.

Lay out a small blanket, and maybe even some mini treats.

It's a perfect setting for some Instagram-worthy shots!

2. Sandcastle Building

Why not build a sandcastle with a special throne for your plushie?

It's a fun activity that allows for creativity and bonding.

3. Plushie Storytime

Gather around with friends or family, and weave a tale with your plushie as the main character.

Maybe it's a story of a brave plushie exploring the vast ocean or a magical tale of underwater kingdoms.


Beach days with plushies are about more than just relaxation; they're about creating memories, stories, and bonds that last a lifetime.

As you pack your beach bag next time, don't forget to include your plushie companion.
