Each Cuddly Wudley is given a Hawaiian name at birth and comes with a license to love. Each license has a different Hawaiian name, address, birth date and license number. There will only be so many made in each name so it will become a collector's item. On the back of the license it's an ID card for children to fill in and keep for themselves. Cuddly Wudley is so cuddly, he is always available for a hug. His only wish is for every person who adopts him, that they pass on the love they feel to everyone they know. You'll be able to recognize a Cuddly Wudley when you see the brightly color Hawaiian fabric in his ears and the Hawaiian print ribbon around his neck. Cuddly Wudley puts a smile on faces.
