Foxy Lady

When I was first contacted by Hullabalu, a New York based toy site that launched this month, to do a review of one of their stuffed animals I was a little hesitant.

Let’s be real, stuffed animals can be pretty pointless. I’ve never seen a baby actually play with or interested in one for longer than two seconds.

Natalie isn’t even a year old yet and she already has a decent sized collection of stuffed animals that she could care less about.

I took a look at the site though and just had to take them up on their offer. Their stuffed animals are so cute it's ridiculous.

What really convinced me though were the descriptions. Each animal had a few sentences written about the "hobbies" they enjoy and funny little quirks about their personalities. I thought it gave them so much character and it made me fall in love with them.

It was hard to make a choice on which one I wanted but I  finally settled on a fox named Nigel. He has the softest fur, a cute button nose and freakishly large eyes.

I was planning on keeping the little guy for my greedy self since I didn't think Natalie would show the least bit interest in him, but to my surprise she actually likes him! She get's excited, starts panting and hugs him when she seems him.

I mean come on, she doesn't even show me that kind of affection!

I hope she becomes attached to him and he becomes her favorite childhood toy. The two already look like the best of buds.







*My opinion of this product is completely my own.

I think the both of them are pretty darn cute!
Stuffies might be useless (to some people... I was one of those kids that loooved collected them) but every kid has a favorite childhood toy right?

Aww too cute! Chloe's actually always loved stuffed animals, but none of hers are that cute.

How adorable is that!

We have tons of stuffed animals, more than enough out for them to play with and about 4 trash bags full of them upstairs. But that fox looks mighty cute. And that 2nd and 3rd picture? I could die. Too much sweetness and cuteness going on.

OH my lanta! That is severely adorable. I'm like you - although I loved stuffed animals as a kid - I think they are {mostly} pointless now for P. Though this guy is PRESH!

That fox is SOOO cute!!! I may just get one for Nigel's 2nd bday in a few weeks. The pics truly make them look like the best of friends - soooo precious.

Hi Sean!

As you understand it, is Hullabalu up and running or are they still in prelaunch? I followed your link above and I only got so far... Do you know if this product is subscription based? It seems interesting and the toy adorable, but I can't quite tell. You seem to have the inside scoop so I thought I'd ask. Thanks for the review. And Natalie is just the cutest, obviously.

THANKS!

Hi Jaime, as far as I know they should be. I was looking for an alternative link for you to shop for their products but couldn't find anything. I'm going to email the people who originally contacted me and then get back to you. If you want to leave an email address for me to contact you that would be great or you can always just come back to this thread for a response. :)
