Plush Vivacious Vegetables

These new plush veggie toys are exactly what the world needs right now. Available through the MoMA Design Store, the super-soft Plush Vivacious Vegetables are crafted by the London-based brand Jellycat and include a bell pepper, carrot, leek, onion, and eggplant made of polyester and cotton.
