“It’s something fun for kids to do,” said Sara Ackerman. “We started off slow, but once we started getting more and more animals, it grew into what we have now.”

Each stuffed animal is filled with stuffing, and before they are sewn up, patrons can add a ‘heartbeat’, a sound box, or a special scent. There’s a wide variety of clothing options for the animals, as well as accessories like critter cottages and backpacks. A rewards card is available for returning customers.

Franie’s Friends also offers party packages filled with hands-on activities, games, and a cuddly friend for a party favor to take home.

“It’s so fun to see kids coming in,” said Rhonda May. “Even if they’re shy at the start, they always open up once they start.

Themed monthly events are announced on their Facebook page as well as special launch dates. Frannie’s Friends parties can also be a fundraising opportunity for local agencies.

“We can bring Frannie’s Friends to an event, or we can create an event of our own for their cause,” said May.

Chivilla Bay is located in the Uptown Aberdeen Mall. For more information, visit their Facebook page at Chivilla Bay. //
