This Place is a Zoo Review and Giveaway!



Hey All!

I just had to share this site with you.  It is called This Place is a Zoo and they carry all sorts of stuffed animals.  They specialize in jumbo and exotic animals.  If you have a stuffed animal lover in your family, this is the place to go to look for a gift.  As you have noticed in previous posts, we own a Yorkie mix, so I fell in love with the 10" Breathing Yorkie.  It is adorable.  The Yorkie I received came in the cutest live animal box, and included was the red Pet Tote Carrying Case, a little padded blanket type bed the dog lays on, a brush, a certificate of adoption and a care manual.  After unpacking the little one, I removed the red tag from the battery area and she started breathing.  It actually sounds like she is snoring lightly as she breathes.  My 9 and 13 year old have been brushing him just for fun! She is wearing a brown collar with a silver tag that says "Perfect Pets" and she has a red bow in her topknot. They have this type of dog available in several breeds.  What a great gift idea!  When she is in the Pet Tote she almost looks real.



Almost looks real!
How Cute!

Adoption Certificate

About This Place is a Zoo:

"The picture shown to the left is me with many of my stuffed animals. When I was a boy I read about Frank Buck and his adventures in the jungles of the world bringing 'em back alive! That was what I wanted to do when I grew up - be a wild animal catcher. Well, that never did happen, but after all these years I finally have a different opportunity to be surrounded by wild animals. This business is the next best thing. I enjoy finding new stuffed animals and making them available for other animal lovers to buy and enjoy. Most of the pictures of these stuffed animals I have taken myself in my own backyard. I have tried to give each stuffed animal a suitable setting to show off its realistic quality and natural feel. If this is not your favorite stuffed animal site then tell me why."

Isn't that face adorable.

This Place is a Zoo is much more than stuffed dogs though.  My son loves horses and the selection they have of stuffed horses is amazing.  I didn't realize that there were so many stuffed  Marine Animals.  If you are interested in Jungle Animals; they have them.  Farm Animals?  Those too!  And their Large Animal selection You really need to visit their site and just browse through all they have.

A Unique Hairdo!  Compliments of my daughter!

They also carry home decor. Rugs, slippers, pillows, and wooden ducks. This shop is totally dedicated to animals!

It was very hard to find something they didn't carry, I mean they have tarantulas and rattlesnakes, vultures, etc. I did a search and I am pretty sure they don't carry arctic hares. Yes, I had to dig deep...
