Find the velcro opening on the center back of your magical creature. Open the velcro and reach into the opening to find a small white pouch. Pull the pouch all the way out of your plush animal. Unzip the pouch.
You can begin stuffing your animal friend with fiber-fill by putting your hands through the small white pouch. Please make sure that the pouch is pulled all the way out as you are stuffing. Otherwise, the fiber-fill does not go into your stuffed animal, and it can get a little messy. Fill the arms and legs first, and then the head and belly.
Make your special creature even more magical by making a wish on the rainbow star and placing this inside your unicorn or dragon.
Close up your new animal friend by zipping up the pouch and sealing the velcro closure.
Now you can give your magical creature a name on the birth certificate! You can also list the date of birth, and fur and eye color.
Congratulations on bringing your cuddly friend to life! Always give it lots of hugs and love!
