My son, as well all know, loves his stuffed animals more then just about anything. Since he enjoys the Peter Rabbit TV show, he was excited to receive the new plush toy inspired by the show. Super soft, cuddly, and with it’s own backpack (just like the show), it’s the perfect nap and bedtime toy for any fan of bunnies or Peter Rabbit- the show or the books.  If your little one has not read the books, now is the perfect time to introduce them.
Nickelodeon and Nordstrom hop into spring with the debut of a new specialty plush toy line inspired by the Nickelodeon preschool series Peter Rabbit.  Along with the GUND plush, two brand-new books, “The Start of Spring and Peter” and “Friends Sticker Activity Book” published by Penguin will also be accessible to customers.  Peter Rabbit featured products will be available online and nationwide in nearly 100 Nordstrom stores in U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas and Miami, among others.

My son doesn’t always love bedtime.  If your kids are anything like that (gasp! Kids that resist sleep? I know, that’s incredibly rare) then you know that anything that helps get them to bed is a good thing.  We have a routine here, and always have.  I always recommend that parents develop and stick with one, so kids know what is coming and are less likely to resist.  Ours includes bath time, lavender lotion, bedtime stories, his favorite song, and bedtime prayers. As a kid who loves his stuffed animals, this adorable Prayer Bear is a welcome addition to his bed.  Not only is is cute and soft, but it also says a bedtime prayer when you press it’s stomach.

Guess How Much I Love You (new line of toys)

My little boy loves his stuffed animals.  He also loves the book, “Guess How Much I Love You”, which we have been reading to him since he was a baby.  The modern classic, which was written in 1994 by British author Sam McBratney and illustrated by Anita Jeram has sold more then 28 million copies- so if you have read it to your little love, you are not alone.


My son has prints of the storybook on his wall in his bedroom, he loves the story so.  He and I often tell each other we love each other to the moon and back, and he likes to stretch his arms to see if they will go wider then mine.  When Kids Preferred came out with the new line of toys from the beloved book, he was thrilled.

Looking for soft and snugly?  If you are like my son, winter (ok, all times of the year) mean cuddling up with a soft, fluffy stuffed animal.  Or 12.  There is nothing, and I mean nothing, that makes him happier then a new stuffed animal.  If I save it until the end of the day, he will even willingly go to bed.  It was one of the only things he asked Santa for this year- Stuffed animals, action figures, and Skylanders.

Some adorable stuffies come from Aurora.  They have some of his favorites, including the popular “YooHoos” (many of which make funny sounds, speak, or sing when their stomach is pressed) and the new Miyoni, which are available in several sizes.  The have such sweet faces, very expressive- even the smallest ones.
