Did you play with Duplo blocks when you were little? Duplos are the younger child version of Legos, designed for ages 1 and a half to 5 years, and they have teamed up with Disney to offer sets with Pooh and friends.
These would make excellent Easter gifts for younger children. If I had little kids I would probably buy these for them because I love Pooh and building toys.
Here is what the website states about Petite Lap Giraffes:
“Petite Lap Giraffes are very funny animal that require special care. They need lots of love. Hugs and kisses every day. Otherwise they make tears.

I was in San Francisco for a conference when I happened to walk past a little store called Kawaii Corner. I could not pass up taking a look at their selection of cute merchandise. They have a website ( kawaiicorner.com) where you can see some of the amazing items they have for sale.
I made a couple perchases:
1. Hamster Popo –
The tag listed a website, but it seems to no longer be in existance. Should I find out more about this adorable hamster I will let you all know.
2. A set of the iwako animal erasers which I previosly posted about:
The little sun next to the erasers was my free gift from a capsule machine. It was a little Pooh Bear peek-a-pooh which has a string on it so you can hang it from bags or cellphones (etc.). To my surprise as I read the paper about it the little pooh bear actually comes out of its costume!
Tare Panda is a panda book and game character from Japan. The name means lazy or droopy panda, and the character is a very lazy panda who has to get around by rolling over. It loves to eat mochi and relax in teacups.
I think this guy is sooo cute! I have seen stuffed animals of it before, and did not know what it was until I decided to research it today.
Do you love tarepanda too? You can find a lot of merchandise like the below stuffed panda at shopkawaii.com:
