Monkeez and Friends: giveaway

We received this adorable set of knit plush animals from Monkeez and Friends to give the kids for Christmas. We set out each one in front of their pile of presents from Santa and it was so cute! Ryan ran straight to his because it was the first thing he saw–he got “Kit” the cat and Rebecca got “Zippy” the Zebra.

These are both medium-sized, but Monkeez has a huge selection of small, medium, and large plush animals–monkeys, owls, rabbits, giraffes, and many more–so adorable!

There are little magnets in the hands and feet so you can wrap them around something, connect them, make them hold hands… but the coolest thing about these are the codes they come with to use online to “Make A Difference.”

This is a great way to teach your kids about philanthropy and encourage them to give and help others. We’ve been working on that message with Ryan, who just turned 3. It’s never too early! Over the holiday season he helped us make donations and give some of his toys to others. Monkeez and Friends uses plush animals (like the ones we received), online games, real life “do good” challenge, AND a 10% donation to one of three charities of your choice on behalf of your child.

They recently donated $45,000, divided among the three charities: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, Samaritan’s Purse and Best Friends Animal Society. Amazing!

There are over 90 plush designs with these “Make A Difference” tags that gives you your unique code to enter online. You can watch videos about each charity and then help your child choose which charity they’d like to donate to! Then they get to play with interactive and educational games on the Monkeez and Friends site.

They also have Do Good trading cards–I LOVE this! Basically each card has an action or a challenge and once your child completes it, they get the trading card to add to their collection and redeem it online for more fun stuff.
