Back when I first got with my husband (which at the time was my boyfriend) he bought me a huge stuffed teddy bear for Valentine's Day, and I still have it setting on top of my chester drawers to this very day! It's a very sentimental item of mine because it represents our first Valentine's Day together and I plan on keeping it, well...probably forever. You probably guessed this already, but yep it's my favorite Valentine's Day gift that I ever received for him because it is very special to me.
Stuffed animals are classic Valentine's Day gifts because they are cuddly and adorable and who could resist something like that! And I know a great place to find some of the cutest most cuddly stuffed animals on the web...www.cuddle-barn.com! But they are not just any stuffed animals, these ones sing, dance, and in some cases even light up! The songs they sing coordinate to the style of the stuffed animal and I have to say this makes them truly unique. Each plush has it's very own personality, which makes them even more unique.
I received a box full of three different stuffed animals and I couldn't have been more excited, at least that is what I though until I met the first plush! Open first glance it just looked like a regular stuffed animal(very cute but just a stuffed animal), but that was until I saw just exactly what it could do! The adorably cute beaver is dressed in a red sweater, a cap on tilted to the side, and holds a microphone in one hand. I noticed a "Press Here" tag on his foot, so I pressed down on it and that's when he started performing! As he sang the "Baby" song by Justin Bieber he opened his mouth to make it looks like he was singing. My two youngest and I sat around it watching as it sang the song like we were actually at a concert or something. The song lasted quite a while and I was very surprised by it's performance. The Beaver would make a perfect gift for any child or Justin Bieber fan.
After trying out the first one we were very excited to try out the other two and we expected just as much out of the other two. Next we pulled out the bear in a box. It is a light tan colored bear thats popping out of a light brown box, complete with a red bow at the top of the box and shipping stamps. As you press the "Press Here" on its hand it begins to sing the song "Sign, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours" by the ever so famous Stevie Wonder. I grew up on oldies and motown so this is definitely a favorite of mine. As the bear sang, his mouth move and so did his feet and his head even swayed to the music! As soon as it was over my three year old yelled "I Love It" and I felt the same way!
Last but not least we pulled out another bear but this bear was holding a honey comb that seemed to have a little propeller at the top, and was decorated with a red bow with little white hearts on it. As we pushed it's foot it began to sing "Sugar Sugar, another one of my all time favorites! As it sang it's mouth opened, it bobbed his head to the music and best yet the propeller was actually a little led fan which read cute little sayings such as "Bee Mine" and "I Love You". I thought the LED ligted fan was such a cute touch and really set this one off from the rest.
Out of all the three I can't really say that I have a favorite because I liked them all so much, it's hard to choose just one! These were all so neat that I can only imagine how neat the rest of their plush are too! Each of the Cuddle Barn stuffed animals put a smile on our face and I am sure they will put one on yours as well! And not only do they offer Valentine's Day themed plush, they also offer Easter, Halloween, Christmas, Baby, and everyday so theres a theme to fit just about any occasion you need it for. Additionally, they offer licensed plush such as Disney, Garfield, and one of my all time favorites - Elvis!
