We have a Blinkweb site that has just got started. It will have articles that we have written about various animals.
We know that people love all sorts of animals but, it isn't always a great idea to have some animals as real live pets. I know lots of kids that might love sharks, tigers, or elephants but, most mom's and dad's would put their foot down when Jr. says they want one for Christmas. Unless you're Sigfried & Roy or Jack Hanna...having a wild animal in the backyard is out of the question. Therefore we have found some links to stuffed plush animals that are like the animal in the articles.
Yes, a stuffed animal is much easier to take care of and will not upset the neighbors when that gorilla moves in.
The more kids learn about the animals that share the earth with us, the more they may become aware of how to protect them. Education is the only way to save our animal friends. And a stuffed animal will not only let the kids show how much they love a particular species, it can also serve as a reminder to take care of the earth and all of it's inhabitants.
Look for new animal articles to come soon to Plush Stuffed Animals Live. Info about real animals and fun safe animals meet.
