BTW, of course there is the one and only "El Pelusa" (Diego Armando Maradonna).

En chile y en argentina pelusa se les dice al niño travieso, pero muy travieso. Además de significar fuzz.

La palabra "pelouse" (francés) tiene otra significación. Es un césped en español o "lawn" en inglés, pero "la peluche" (francés) es "pelusa" o"fluff"

In Spain "pelusa" means also the jealousy of the children.

Mi hijo pequeño tiene mucha "pelusa" de su hermano mayor.

A ver si es que tienes un poco de pelusilla

"Pelusilla" se usa más que pelusa aquí.
