On our recent trip to the beach, we decided to take a morning and go to the nearby zoo (the Cape May County Zoo). The boys loved it, and MD fell in love with the giraffes and the lion. CW was a little more hesitant about the lion…the large, muscular creature that was roaming around chuffing and roaring. But my 2 year old was fearless. He loved imitating the lion, and actually became quite adept at the sounds.
A week later, International Playthings LLC sent us an adorable plush lion to review. MD was so excited. The Lion has become a permanent fixture in his new big boy bed! The lion is super soft and has a great tail for carrying. He is part of their new line by the German company Nici called “Wild Friends” which includes mugs, banks, pillows, wallets, and stuffed animals. There are giraffes, leopards, tigers, birds, and lions. And they are some of the cutest, softest, cuddliest creatures out there!
If you need the perfect present for a little one, at under $20, these Wild Friends make a great gift! Make Wild Friends a part of your zoo experience, or find a great book to go along with them like “Tawny Scrawny Lion” which my boys love.
You can find all of the Wild Friends on the International Playthings website. In fact, if you buy one today and use the code LION20 at check out, you’ll receive a 20% discount on your purchase.
