If you're tired of the same old cuddly toys, consider a zombie plush instead. Zombie stuffed animals and toys are fun gifts and perfect for kids and adults into some harmless horror.
A zombie doesn't make for your average plush, that's for sure. These stuffed toys are the perfect gift idea for someone needing a fun gift for Halloween. Anyone in to all things Walking Dead can now have an undead creature or ghoul of their very own.
Give a zombie for Halloween or for a spooky party. They make great gifts as long as you wrap them well so they can't rise up and surprise you when you least expect it. Some of these soft dolls can be dismembered which is fun for someone who loves taking things apart. Watch your back now.

The Rise of the Zombie Stuffed Animal Plush
Plush toys are not all sweet and sickly. Here's some frightfully great Zombie stuffed toys which are perfect for kids, and also adults, who are fascinated by those ghoulish undead creatures.
My personal favorite is the 12 inch Dismember Me plush which can cleverly be ripped apart and it's got interchangeable limbs. Kids can rip, pull and tear all they like with this innovative toy. My brother was famed for taking my toys apart and breaking them when we were kids, wish he'd had one of these.
For some more horrible ideas. How about a feasting electronic plush. The zombie character will feast on you (hence the blood around his mouth) and make gross chomping sounds when pressed against your body.
Let him take a bite out of you. This is a brilliant looking toy for zombie enthusiasts of all ages. Alternatively, there is the toxic zombie snake plush. He doesn't do anything but he looks frightfully cool.
If you're feeling at all crafty, check out the DIY Zombie Felties book which teaches you how to make your very own zombie plushies which you can keep or gift. There are 16 different undead creatures which you can enjoy making. An alternative book is Closet Monsters. That's something a little different to sew, a perfect project for a reluctant crafter who's into horror.
You can even get kinda cute zombie, ghoul and undead plush dolls in pretty pink, lilac and pale blues. Girls like zombies too and these little lovelies look sweet despite what they are. Ophelia the Zombie is from the creepy cuddlers range. She has bright red, evil staring eyes and decayed 'skin' displaying some scabby sores underneath. She's no Barbie doll, that's for sure.
Monster High Friends make some freakishly fabulous school ghouls with some co-ordinating pets. These zombies are about as pretty as they're going to get.
Spectra Vondergeist comes with thick, two-tone yarn hair and an adorable little pet called Rhuen. I adore this raggedy doll's button eyes. Lagoona Blue is my favorite girly ghoul. She's decked out in a super sweet candy blue with a pretty pink fish pet. She is the sweetest Monster High doll of all.
If cutesy zombie plushies are not what you had in mind, there are plenty of alternative suggestions on this page that will probably go down well with male members of the species. Don't forget to also check your local auction site where you can also get new toys.
You can get some fantastic bargains on sites like eBay and even Etsy for handmade ones although watch that you're not paying more than what you'd normally pay elsewhere.
