I have such a fun company to introduce to you, bloggy buddies!
It is a really unique stuffed animal company, called “This Place is a Zoo!” ( I know, even the name is cute!)
So, as soon as I saw this great website, and the adorable and super detailed toys they offered AT A REALLY GREAT COST, I knew I had to tell you all about them.
As I was browsing This Place is a Zoo, I saw more and more cute and special toys. I mean, really! How many places offer stuffed armadillos?
(and realistic-looking!)

THAT IS A TOY!!! Can you believe it? And it’s less then 20$
Not into armadillos? Still want a unique toy?
How about cuddley “Speckles” the seal?

This 12″, super soft, adorable, kohair monk seal is only $12.50
Yes, you read that right. I just double checked to make sure.
OK, maybe you are more traditional. Maybe you want to see one more, just to see that they can do with bears?
Well, that’s too bad, because I couldn’t decide on just one bear to show you! LOL
LOOK at these Pandas!
Here is a panda family– price? Just $14.95 and up. (Special price for whole family together)

Oh my goodness, I have to have this guy! Look how adorable!

And only $12.50. His name is “Sitting Playful Panda“. Doesn’t that make you go Awwwwww!
Did I lie? Insane amounts of cute-ness, low, low price. What is not to love?

This Place is a Zoo was gracious enough to not only send us the ADORABLE “Baby Chimp Cuddlekin

to review, but also offered to do a giveaway for one of my lucky, lucky readers!
Little Man and Kamikaze went “ape” over this little guy.

Here is Little Man finding the “monkey booty”….

OOOO, happy Little Man! This Place is a Zoo could not have made a better choice- Little LOVES monkeys!
But, to the victor, goes the spoils…soon Little Man had to potty, and….

where did we find Kamikaze? Up in her bed, a half hour early. She wanted the monkey, and so, she put herself to bed with him, thinking that she had made her claim successfully! (Sly Kamikaze!)
The next morning, we were all getting ready to leave the house. Monkey was left unattended- and….
BAM! Little had him again, and made for the door. So, Monkey was Little’s for the day, at least. And here is monkey, now named “Phillip”, at school with Little during nap time.

To whom does Phillip the Monkey belong? Well, they have him every other day. Joint custody, what can I say. πŸ™‚
Now that is a toy! LOL
So, would you like to hear about the contest??? Well, yeah you would!
One of you lucky readers will get your choice of stuffies up to $14.95
That is a whole lot of options!
