My Natural Bamboo Collection: Review and Giveaway!


I was recently given the opportunity to review this lovely stuffed toy from miYim Organic Toys new line, My Natural Bamboo Collection.  As you may have guessed from the name, these are stuff animals made from bamboo.  More on bamboo in a minute, but first things first. 

Whenever a product arrives on my doorstep the first thing I look at is how it is packaged.  This packaging fell far short of optimal.  It arrived in a box a good amount larger than the actual item and the toy was in a plastic bag inside the box.  So now I have a plastic bag and big box to reuse.  

The good news is that's where the negatives end.  I received the panda toy, but there are also a frog, elephant, and monkey.  They are all available exclusively at Barnes and Noble for only  $14.99 each.  I think this panda is just adorable.  He strikes the perfect balance between playful pal and classic toy.  He is incredibly soft and cuddleable (sure it's a word) but not in a too furry kind of way, which frankly I don't care for.  He is in the perfect sitting position for easily resting on a shelf or bed and is the perfect size, not too small to be significant but not too big to carry around everywhere.
My boys wanted to snatch this up the moment I opened the box.  The bad news for them and great news for you is that we are trying to donate toys and downsize right now.  So we are giving away our My Natural Bamboo Collection Panda!

All you have to do to win is leave a comment here!

Hi Willo! I found you through Anna the GSD. I hope you don't mind if dogs comment, too. I know a cute little girl named Aurora who I'm sure would like to have a blue, white, and green panda. Great idea!

See ya!
Joey
