Save money on stuffed animals buying thrift friendly, gently used toys.  When you bring them home, put them in a pillowcase and knot the end.  Then put them in the washer with a little bleach.  You can air dry them, or dry them on the low setting of your dryer.  If you have a newer washer and dryer, you can use one of the cycles that both sanitize and sterilize items.
