Every few months, a new animal emerges as the latest trend in fashion, decor and plush stuffed animals. Move over, llamas and foxes. It’s sloth season! Why sloths? Probably because they’re cute, cuddly and known for liking to hang out and sleep, much like babies. Read on for our sloth picks for clothing, blankets, accessories, nursery decor and more!
