*Celebrate Baby* Monster Factory Review & Giveaway [Ends 3/24]


I possibly couldn't have had a successful baby event without any plush toys. As a kid I had tons and tons of stuffed animals. They all had names and they all kept me company. Some I loved more than others. And that's just how life is :) I kept quite a few of them and passed them on to my son. He doesn't express too much interest in stuffed animals yet, but I know that will change as he grows.



Monster Factory sent us a Mini Plush Colin to play with. He's just a little thing (Size: 3" x 3.75" x 5.5"), but has lots of detail. My son figured out right away that he can pull down the hood and take the hands out of pockets. We both love this little toy. I've always had a thing for different and unique items. This plush monster is anything but a normal stuffed animal. Of course it's always good to get a teddy bear or a fluffy bunny, but I think there is more you can do with someone unique like Colin. Kids can really apply their imagination and create a whole world for this toy. I'd love to expand my collection of these monsters once my son starts playing with stuffed animals like I have in the past. And if he himself asks me for another one when he's older, I won't be able to say no. These are too cute!


Monster Factory carries over 70 various monster plushies and some of them come in 3 different sizes. Monsters are divided by series such as 8 bits, herbivores, monsternauts and many more. What's also great is that kids can go to Monster Factory's website and watch videos featuring the stuffed monster toys. There are also fun facts and stories posted over on their blog.

Each week Monster Factory features a monster of the week and you can get the featured toys for 20%! If that's not good enough, us Canadians can get these Monsters from Chapters!
