When I wash my kids stuffed animals I put them in the washer like anything else and wash on a genle cycle unless they are stuffed with beans or have a music box in them. When my daughter was small she has a stuffed bunny with a music box. It got so dirty and stinky I finally picked the stitches, took out the music box, put in more stuffing and sewed it back up. washing it was the best thing I could have done. If the stuffed animals are small you might want to buy a mesh zipper bag and put them in it. Dry as usual. I also throw my brushes and combs in the wash sometimes.
