20 Animal Toys Your Kids Will Love

A few weeks ago, temps were like a million degrees below freezing, but the whole family was feeling restless (yes, even these two!). So we bundled ourselves up and ventured to the pet store for an afternoon of animal-gazing. Because basically, the pet store is just a miniature indoor zoo, yes? Bee wasn’t impressed by the puppies, hamsters, bunnies or fish (she’s a hard one to please, this gal) but she was definitely captivated by the colors and labels of the dog food. Future culinary artist or branding exec, perhaps?
Anyway, our trip made me think of this study, which reveals that kids are more drawn to animals than toys. I certainly find it true in our household, as Bernie is Bee’s greatest pal on earth. (Ken and I have a theory that George only has a 7-second memory capacity, so we’re not sure he knows who Bee is.) So today, inspired by animals and the babies who love them, I’m collecting a few cuties from around the web (20 to be exact!):
1. Interchangeable Dovetail Animals ($19) at Poketo
2. Big Froggy ($97) at YadaYada
3. Wolf by Maileg (£23.50) at Sisters Guild
4. Bobo Choses Mr. Cook Soft Toy ($63) at Little Fashion Gallery
5. Brontosaurus Statue ($60) at Spoon Sisters
6. Giraffe Cardboard Trophy ($13.80) at My Little Square
7. Simon the Snail Music Box ($48) at YadaYada
8. Miffy Plush Toy ($58.44) at Smallable
9. Topozoo Monsters ($30) at Tada!Shop
10. Penguin ($11) at The Ark
Tell me, do your babies take an interest in your pets or even stuffed animals? (And did you know that baby animals are proven to increase productivity? Craziness!)
p.s. Just for fun: Animal finger puppets, sustainable stuffed animals and animal decor.
  • Forrest enjoys his toys, so far, but he does have a cute little special “word” he says when he sees dogs and cats, and only then. I keep forgetting to take him to a pet store to see if he’ll enjoy it, thanks for the reminder! And I have a huge stuffed lion I picked up before Christmas to introduce him too – weekend fun, here we come. = )
