Tales 4 Tomorrow Stuffed Animals and Game

Online interactivity is a big feature in children’s toys these days. Environmental stewardship is another angle that often appeals to parents and kids alike.

Tales4Tomorrow has teamed up with Conservation International to produce stuffed animals that tie in with a gaming site (similar to Webkinz).

My 5 1/2 year old son Kyle was happy to receive the rhinoceros. He promptly named it “Hortie” (because it looks like Horton the elephant to him), and has been sleeping with him. He’s not a huge stuffed animal lover, but something about this pet appeals to him!

These animals are bigger than I expected and look much (MUCH) better in real life than on the site. They are also made in an environmentally conscious manner. The outer cover is made from soy and cotton, while the product tag is made from recycled paper. The product line was created to educate children about endangered animals and what they need to survive.

Five percent of the proceeds go to Conservation International, and when the child first logs in to the site using the code from their stuffed animal, they can select for themselves which kind of animal the funds will work to preserve: frogs, pandas, elephants or tigers.

Kyle is definitely familiar with the computer and the plethora of gaming sites designed for children. Some bore him and some captivate him. He loves Tales 4 Tomorrow. The games are unique and interesting, and there are many opportunities for learning as well. The players can build their animal’s habitat, using the Habitokens that they earn by playing games. Kyle loves this sort of incentive in games that he plays — knowing that he can earn points that can actually be used for something. I like that you don’t have to pay anything else after the initial stuffed animal purchase.

The Tales 4 Tomorrow line is available for purchase at specialty stores and online at www.tales4tomorrow.com only. Each plush retails for about $19.99. You can also buy codes for a virtual pet for $9.95 that gives you access to the games (without the stuffed animal clutter!).

One of you will win the Tunger the Tiger stuffed animal with an activation code so that you can experience all the fun at Tales4Tomorrow.

In addition, we have two-week trial codes for FIVE runners up.
