Product Review: Patchwork Pet Pastel Caterpillar

Sisci Godzilla got this giant stuffed caterpillar from Patchwork Pet in her Easter basket. This thing is a huge 35" long, with a squeaker in each section. That's nine squeakers. It's fluffy, double stitched, and surprisingly durable. Patchwork Pet also makes a slightly more reasonable 20" version of the caterpillar, along with a bunch of other fun stuffies.

I was totally unfamiliar with Patchwork Pet when I bought this toy. It caught my eye because it was giant, colorful, fluffy, and ridiculous. I figured the girls would shred in a day or two, I'd pick up all the stuffing, and that would be the end of it.

The caterpillar surprised me! It's way more durable than your average cheap stuffy. The girls dragged it around for weeks before it got so much as a hole. So far they've unstuffed the tail segment, and pulled the squeaker out of the head, but the caterpillar largely remains intact.

  • Comically large
  • Durable enough for playtime
  • Tons of squeakers


  • Won't survive a toy-shredder, dedicated unstuffer, or really wild play
  • Pastel color gets dirty really fast

Bottom Line:

Patchwork Pet makes some really high-quality BIG stuffed toys for dogs, and some really cute and clever cat toys, too. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for their products now.

  1. I reached out to this company Patchwork pet to see why this happened: I grabbed the caterpillar because my dogs mouth was bleeding and a piece of sharp plastic got stuck in my finger so I opened his head and found all sharp pieces of plastic. The dog toys (from everywhere else I have shopped) I have gotten for both of my dogs over the past 8 years never had any type of plastic in them. This is a first for me. I got a call back but I have since reached out 3x to try to make sure this doesn't happen again but to no avail. $20 for the toy but $2,000 for the exploratory surgery if something were to damage her on the inside maybe even kill her. Please be careful and check all toys, I don't want this happening to anyone else's baby. I would post pictures but it won't allow me too.
