Brush-a-Loves :: Plush

"Beautiful Brush-a-Loves and Li'l Brush-a-Loves need the loving care of little girls to keep them stay their best. Little girls will love using the Brush-a-Loves special brush-in-tail to brush, comb and style each of these sweetly scented little cuties!"

Brush-a-Loves were produced by Tyco, AmToy and Matchbox in 1987-89. They were plush bears about 10 inches high with brushes on the ends of their tails, a mirror attached to their right paw and a scented powder puff on their left. Alongside them came Li'l Brush-a-Loves, scented dog like creatures with a loop on their bellies so they could be worn like a bracelet, and a brush on the end of their tails. There were also Kiss-a-Loves which were only released in UK/Europe by Matchbox. They were small flocked plastic versions of the Brush-a-Loves with a furry tail with a brush on the end.

There were eight Brush-a-Loves produced, each one scented differently. Four were produced for the US and four for the UK (plus one colour variation). The UK version had no individual names that I know of and were marked Matchbox 1989.
