I want to go to the zoo!

Since we have been spending a good amount of time on the living room floor the last few days attempting to keep Connor from thinking about how awful he feels I've been trying to bring the adventures to him. This time of year is my favorite time to go to the zoo, it's getting cooler outside and the animals are more active. We have a Zoo membership so we can go as often as we like and I had plans on taking Connor this week while I was out of school on break but unless he starts feeling better we may not make it this week. It's ok though as we have our own little zoo in the middle of our living room!

National Geographic Kid from International Playthings offers an amazing assortment of unique plush animals that will delight all those future zoologists out there! They had me at hello when I saw the new 10" Plumed Basilisk plush! I've always wanted to get Connor a pet lizard but with our current eight dogs and my school schedule I'm not sure I can handle another body to take care of so at the moment he will have to settle for his outdoor reptile friends, or colony of House Geckos that live on the carport and the Green Anole that lives in my mailbox. In the meantime though he can enjoy his new basilisk.

Each National Geographic Kids plush is incredibly detailed down to each little spike on our basilisk giving kids the feeling of being able to see animals that they might not otherwise see up close. As well every plush animal in the National Geographic Kids collection comes with its own facts card. The fun facts card includes real photos of the animal and some cool facts about them.

From hippos to penguins every kid should find an animal or two that they really love in the collection. Go check out the full selection over at International Playthings.

I have a National Geographic Kid kangaroo to give away to one lucky reader!

The cute fuzzy Koala reminds me of one of my favorite stuffed animals when I was a kid. I wonder what happened to mine? Maybe I'll have to get a replacement.

Gosh, you give away the cutest stuff! I love the hippo. He's darling! But really, the kangaroo is my favorite - my son is suddenly really into stuffed animals lately. He lines them up and plays, so a new playmate would be most welcome!

Eight dogs - gee whiz! And I thought two dogs and two parrots was a ruckus!

RebekahC said...

Aww, I love love love the kangroo. I have to enter for my daughter who gets a kick out of the fact that she shares her name with a baby kangroo. Yes, that's right, her name is Joey. So, this would be the perfect stuffed animal for her. I also really love the Hippo and the Sea Turtle, though all the stuffies they have over there are super cute.

Thanks for the entry!

Oh the kanaroo is so cute! My favorite is that gorgeous tiger though. I'm buying the Happy Halloween white rabbit collection.

Cheri said...

I love the Polar Bear! But, I know my son would love the Penguin. We went to the zoo last week and he wanted to see Penguins and Monkeys but the Penguin exhibit is being re-modled and won't be open until next summer! He loves Penguins and animals! He would love the kangaroo. Thanks for the giveaway!

kristine fisher said...

Okay, after much ado and searching for what animal I might like (since the links in the referring site were broken), I find the hippo very cute. This is a bit unreasonable, of course, since hippos are more deadly when they attack you than venomous snakes.

sweetsue said...

We love the zoo too! My favorite National Geographic animal (besides the kangaroo which is great)is the adorable elephant.

Elena said...

I think the tiger is really neat looking. Thanks for the contest!
