Okay – I’m going to start this post asking you to raise your hand if your child loves stuffed animals? I swear every time we leave this house a stuffed animal fairy somehow takes hold of one of my children and ‘blesses’ them with some magical power to make me buy them another stuffed animal because OMG it is just so cute! I think this happens as I completely understand their need because I too as a child, was a collector of Stuffis Animalis. And when I graduated from college and bought a house, my mom showed up at my doorstep and delivered boxes and boxes of my beloved stuffed animals and just maybe I still have them all because OMG they are so cute.
What I love now though is that stuffed animals are so much cooler and seemingly smarter because they are not only squishy, huggy cute but they can be functional. This new found functionality of a stuffed animal makes parents very happy while their children delight even more in playing with their new friends.
So when I was contacted by Bumpidoodle to review a Floor Friend I kind of got way too excited over it because OMG cute!
The Bumpidoodle brand was created, designed and continues to be developed in the USA <— which is so awesome as so many toys now are not made here. And it’s actually a local Minnesota company which I am thrilled to support! A six year old girl named Ellison from Minnesota thought of the name “bumpidoodle.” She wanted there to be lots of friends so they could all play together. Bumpidoodle Friend Floor Cushions are made from ultra-plush fabric with soft fleece accents and a cozy polyester fill. And believe me – they are super soft and fun. But you don’t have to believe me – just ask my expert….
Astrid flipped when we opened her new Ellie The Elephant Bumpidoodle and hugged on it and loved on it and jumped on it.
Until she fell asleep.
Now Astrid drags her Ellie everywhere as it’s her own special place to sit and read a book, play a game,snuggle with her cats or even take a rest. Her big sisters have very cool tween beanbag chairs so now Astrid has something cool of her own…and trust me when I say that her big sisters are JEALOUS and Eloise is begging me for the Panda Bumpidoodle(you’ve seen Eloise in her Panda hat, yes?)
And now for the best part –
I’m giving away an Ellie The Elephant Bumpidoodle Floor Friend to one of you!!!
