Petcakes Review and Giveaway

My children absolutely love stuffed animals. My little girls especially love stuffed animals and they are usually carrying one around with them throughout the day. Their room is full of stuffed animals, and many of them end up all over the house. They sleep with them, play with them, lay with them, and even take favorite ones to the store when we go out. When I saw the cute little stuffed animals from Pet Cakes®, I knew my little girls would love them. So, I was thrilled when Pet Cakes® agreed to sponsor a review and giveaway on my blog.

A little bit about the company: Pet Cakes® are manufactured by the Well Made Toy Manufacturing Corporation, which was founded by Fred Catapano. What started out as one man’s passion for creating soft toys has exploded into a booming business with the release of some of the most well-known and most-loved stuffed toys in the world. Catapano continues to use his creativity to add insights into the development of new toys, and his company has become a success with branches located across the globe. Matt Nuccio, who is the co-owner and creative director of Design Edge Inc., has partnered with the Well Mady Toy Manufacturing Corporation on the Pet Cakes® brand.  Pet Cakes® were created in 2010 and feature a soft, cuddly plush animal combined with a creative design. Each little stuffed animal sits snugly inside a cupcake wrapper, and resembles a real cupcake. Children are delighted with the fun design and cuddly little animals with sweet faces.  They are perfect for giving as gifts, party favors, stocking stuffers, or anytime throughout the year. 

My Review:  We received two Pet Cakes® from the series 2 Forest Animal Collection. The little guys we received are Roco Coco, a raccoon, and Bamboo Berry, a panda. As soon as I opened the package, my little girls were excited to play with them. They soon became the new favorite amongst the sea of stuffed animals, and were taken to bed with the girls and played with for hours. 

I thought that they were incredibly unique and very cute. I love the concept of Pet Cakes®, which is that they resemble real cupcakes. The toy comes in two pieces, a stuffed animal with a little attached hat that looks like frosting and a place for the animal to sit, which resembles a cupcake wrapper. When you tuck the stuffed animal into the bottom piece, it truly does look like a little cupcake.

I found the stuffed animals to be well-made with quality materials. My children definitely give their toys a work out, especially stuffed animals that are carried and dragged around throughout the day. These little guys have stood up to the challenge of being played with over and over by four children, and they still look and feel as soft and cuddly as when they arrived.
All of my children liked the Pet Cakes®, but I think they have both found a special place in the heart of each of my little girls. They are now sitting in their new place of honor, with my children's other loved stuffed animals, where they are snuggled and played with on a regular basis.
