Holiday Gift Guide | Anamalz Review & Giveaway (US)

I love toys that inspire my children’s imaginations and promote interactive play. anamalz is an award-winning line of eco-friendly toy animals. My children can play for hours with their anamalz. Each toy is lovingly hand crafted and made out of durable and sustainable maple wood and include fabric around the necks to give it a “pop” of color. The attention to detail in each animal in the anamalz collection is superb. Our favorite feature is that each animal can be posed in various ways too so playtime is extra fun.

My children like to create their own habitats for their anamalz and I often find them drawing and coloring different habitats such as a jungle, farm, forest and even a prehistoric world. As a mom, I love watching them role playing with their favorite anamalz by creating voices and even a storyline for every adventure. My children are ages 4, 5 and 6 and this is one of the few toy sets that they play with cooperatively and without getting into fights.

We recently discovered three new fun critters in the new 2011 Wild anamalz collection including an Elephant, Moose and Gorilla. The Elephant is very authentic looking with its wooden body and soft fabric trunk and ears. My personal favorite is the Moose with his prominent antlers and sweet facial features. My four year old son loves to play with his wild Gorilla and the fabric ears make this quite realistic.

There are many different anamalz to choose from in several sets including “Wild, Farm, Australian and Prehistoric.” In my experience, anamalz provides a big bang for your buck with high quality, affordable toys that are sure to be a hit with young children. These would make excellent stocking stuffer ideas or a gift set with several favorite anamalz and an anamalz Playmat would be a wonderful gift idea for the holidays. In fact, my four year old dinosaur fan is dreaming about the Prehistoric anamalz collection so this just might be a very special holiday surprise from Santa!

You are invited to visit the anamalz website to browse and shop the entire collection of animals. You can also learn more about this eco-friendly company and all of these adorable “environmentally friendly animals”. Anamalz retails for $8.95 to $12.95 per toy and can be purchased online or at major retailers.
