Bear Haven Boutique Review {Plus a giveaway!}

Recently, I was given the opportunity to sample some products from Bear Haven Boutique.

Bear Haven Boutique offers great products, such as stuffable plush kits, unique toys, gifts, clothing and accessories, all at great prices. They also offer party supplies, baby shower gifts and personalized items. Bear Haven Boutique is located in Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania.

I was so excited when Lesa Rumbalski, owner of Bear Haven Boutique, offered to let me review some of the products she sells. I have a daughter and a son, so Lesa sent some products that are perfect for them! We recieved two stuffable animal kits, each with an outfit to wear!

Lesa describes her stuffable animal kits like this, "My stuffable animal kits include everything you need to make your own stuffed animal. You get the stuffable animal skin, the fluff (or as my daughter calls it, 'fluffin'), the 'wish insert' which is usually a star or a heart, and a birth certificate so that you can name your new pal. You also receive a reusable tote which you can decorate for your new pal or use for library books or to carry special items!
In addition to the stuffable animals, I also carry stuffable dolls and outfits for all of the stuffable friends. I also carry clothing for American Girl dolls and a unique selection of educational toys and fun boutique gifts."

The first animal we opened up was Cottonball the Bunny Rabbit (16"), a perfect present for my daughter. Cottonball came with a fun, Pink "Winter Wonderland" Outfit (16"), complete with earmuffs and a "Love" red star wish insert! There was an instruction sheet, with detailed infomation on how to create our new friend and a blank certificate, celebrating the adoption of our new bunny friend.

The pink outfit fit her perfectly after being stuffed. The back of the dress is a simple velcro closure system, making it easy for my daughter to remove it if she likes. Bear Haven Boutique offers a ton of great clothing to fit the stuffable animals they sell. My daughter loved stuffing the bunny, and I thought adding the red "Love" star wish insert was a cute touch. My little girl also loved the reusable tote bag, as she is really into carrying around purses.

My son's new animal was next. This adorable Bull Dog (15") came with a "Bear Sox" Baseball Outfit (16"), a "Courage" blue star wish insert and his own pet adoption certificate. The animals are so easy and fun to stuff. The kits even come with all the stuffing you need. You simply stuff, stuff, stuff the filling into your pet from the back, cinch up the stuffing pocket, close the velcro strips together and voila, you're done!

The last step is to fill out the certificate. My kids will have their pet adoption certificates to look back on for a fun keepsake. It even brings back fond memories of owning Cabbage Patch Kids when I was little. They're able to name their new friend, add the date and place where they "first met," write in their own name as the new "best friend," and write why the new animal pet is special to them.

We had a blast making our new stuffed buddies! The quality of the animals is top notch. I can see these as really wonderful birthday party activities for kids. And not only would they provide a party activity, they would also serve as a parting gift for attendees. I fully recommend Bear Haven Boutique products to all of my family, friends and readers. If you are in the market for fun party gifts and accessories, Bear Haven Boutique has great stuff at even better prices. Check out some of my other favorite items, found at Bear Haven Boutique's website.

The Personalized Zebra/Hot Pink Birthday Hat - Customized with age, name and thread color of choice!

The Dinosaur Excavation Kits: Triceratops OR T-Rex - I can only imagine the fun kids would get out of these, especially at a birthday party!
The 18" doll Party Dress - Fits perfectly on American Girl dolls!

Lesa's products are fun and creative! You can find some great party gifts and activities at Bear Haven Boutique. Please check out her website for all that she offers! Plus, this is a great time to take advantage of a special coupon code, 5kgiveaway, good for 15% off between now and Sept 15, 2012, for all Sugar Mama's Sweet Bowtique fans! And check out Lesa's blog for fun party-planning ideas, giveaways and much more!

Here, Lesa tells us a little bit about herself.
"I started Bear Haven Boutique five years ago as a way to make a little extra money while staying home with my children. Since then, I have been building an online presence and now also a local presence in my community. While I specialize in children's parties, my collection of unique toys and gifts has become an important part of my business as well!
My goal is to provide parents a way to have an awesome party without breaking a budget. For those that are local, I work with budgets and ideas to plan the best party possible. For those far away, I show them how to plan an awesome party on my blog using products from my online store.
I love getting to be a big kid, and of course, my kids like that too! I also like being able to help make a child's day extra special!"

Bear Haven Boutique is offering you a chance to win a Boy OR Girl Stuffable Bear AND an Outfit to go with it! She is graciously sponsoring our 8K Facebook Fan giveaway. {ENTER HERE} from 8/15/12 - 9/14/12!
