Charity event sets plush toy record - The Boston Globe

Charity event sets plush toy record - The Boston Globe: "The mountain of more than 5,600 stuffed animals in the gymnasium at Andover's Shawsheen School rose 10 feet high: Beanie Babies, teddy bears, smiling alligators, puffy dogs, a child-sized Winnie the Pooh, a 4-foot penguin, a 5-foot Bugs Bunny, and a stuffed gorilla the size of, well, a gorilla.

The elementary school collected the animals for charity from school and community members. In the process, the Shawsheen School hoped to set a new Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of plush toys."
