I was honored to be able to do a product review for Bear Haven Boutique. My reason? Because Bear Haven Boutique is owned by a mother just like you and I. It is such a wonderful feeling to help support this endeavor. Built from the dream of staying home with her children Bear Haven Boutique was born.
When I was contacted to do a review for my holiday event I was very excited. I browsed through the site looking for the perfect item for me, my daughter, or any family member. I am always looking for something that someone I know would enjoy reviewing.
Honey in the past seemed to show preference to bunnies. She wanted “Comfy” the bunny Pillow Pet however by the time we got around to purchasing one it was out of stock and since then seems to be discontinued. I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to fill that void. So I chose “Cottonball“
Originally I was thinking of giving this to Honey for Christmas. Of course that was as long as I kept it hidden from my mother in law who fell in love with it the minute I showed her. It is simply the softest stuff animal I’ve ever felt.
However my dear friend LeeAnn told me I really should let Honey stuff her own bunny. That is what is so unique about this stuffed animal it didn’t come already put together. It is like Build-A-Bear in your own home. Cottonball is a stuffable animal, which means
we Honey got to make her, herself. Honey was thrilled with the idea of stuffy her bunny and told me it was just like that place at the mall. She insisted she do it all herself.
I’m so glad LeeAnn made me see the light and I realized this gift wasn’t just about the end product but the fun of creating it. She now has a special connection to “Olivia BunnyOne” (yes she is no longer Cottonball) because she had a part in making her.
She did end up with a little help from her older brother to get the stuffing into the leg but I was pretty much the bystander and photographer on this project. Though her name is Olivia BunnyOne, she goes by her middle name only and is affectionately called “BunnyOne”. She is a princess of course.
How fun this experience was to share with my daughter, it is so much more then just a stuffed animal it is an experience. BunnyOne also came with her very own birth certificate that Honey and I filled out together.
I’m so thankful to have gotten the chance to review this product from Bear Haven Boutique. There is so much more however then stuffable animals at Bear Haven Boutique, one of their specialties is Party Planning.
