Welcome to the Bubbles of Love Event where I am featuring many products and hosting many reviews to give you a chance to win some great gift ideas for Valentine's Day! In case you missed it, be sure to scroll down to see the SodaStream giveaway posted earlier today!
Now I'm going to move on to a shop and a product that would be a perfect gift to give to someone like me! I'm pretty sure I've mentioned on here that I am a huge animal lover and I have a very soft spot in my heart for small animals. As a child I had guinea pigs and now as an adult I actually have a lot of rats. A lot. Seriously, it's kind of sick how many ratties I have, but I love the little buggers and can't get enough of them! This is why the wonderful animal plushies available at the Morumoto Etsy Shop would make a fantastic Valentin's Day gift for myself or someone like me.
Naomi, the wonderful woman who run the Morumoto Etsy Shop and makes all of the adorable plushies found within this great little Etsy shop also has a love for small fuzzies. She has Guinea Pig, Rat, and Mouse plushies available. Since I am a rat lover my favorite plushie in her shop is the adorable Agouti Rat Plushie. I love this one especially because 3 of my ratties are agouti rats and this plushie actually looks A LOT like mine! In fact my dog, Boo, has been licking the plushie since I pulled it out of the box earlier today which is exactly what he does with my real rats (or at least tries to- some of them let him lick 'em and other run away).
The plushie is extremely well made and I can tell the Naomi puts a lot of love and care into all of the products available at the Morumoto Etsy Shop. And running with the theme of "love" for Valentine's Day my little agouti rattie has a fuzzy pink heart affixes to show my true love for these often mis-understood fuzzie cuties!
If you have a guinea pig, rat, or mouse lover in your life a Morumoto Plushie would make a fantastic Valentine's Day gift! They would also make a great gift for a child because we should forget about the kids this time of the year! They like to feel like they are loved, too, after all.
What I Love: The love and care put into these fabulous homemade plushies are obvious! Naomi really puts a lot of effort into making her Morumoto plushies look realistic. My rattie plushie is even the same size as my real agouti ratties! Of course this is an Etsy store which means it automatically gets my love! But on top of that the products are fantastic and the prices are great!
What I Don't Love: Not a single thing! I love everything about this shop!
Ready to pick up a Morumoto plushie for that animal lover or child in your life who would love one for Valentine's Day? Head on over to the Etsy Shop and pick out the plushie of choice for your loved one! If you don't quite see what you like the nice thing about an Etsy Shop is that you can easily contact the owner to see if a custom product can be made! That way you can get the plushie that looks just like the rat, guinea pig, or mouse already in your home or perhaps to help remember a childhood pet!
Ratties sell for $12.50, mice are $10, little guinea pigs are $12.50, and big guinea pigs are $20.
Naomi is offering one lucky winner a plushie of the winner's choosing from those available in her store as part of the Bubbles of Love event!
