Today I’m delighted to introduce you to SaSa Originals!  Not only is this shop full of sweet plush goodness for babies and toddlers – everything is lovingly made by a fellow mom!  And you know how much I LOVE supporting mom-owned businesses.  It’s the perfect excuse for buying something you really want or need.  :)  You know what else is cool?  Sara of SaSa Originals was named one of the Top 50 Etsy Moms on Babble.  What an honor!

Sara and her creations

I was immediately drawn to Sara’s stuffed dinosaurs when I saw them.  I’m doing a dinosaur-themed nursery for my little boy due in January and these stood out in the Etsy crowd to me because they’re made with soft furry fabric, come in so many colors and patterns, AND each dino is a rattle.  I just knew my little boy would love one!

But dinosaurs aren’t the only rattle toys Sara makes – she also sells giraffe, owl, and elephant rattles, as well as soft chenille blankets, “Ouchie Paks”, crinkle toys, and car seat toys.

I was thrilled when Sara agreed to send me Cleo the Dinosaur for review and offered to give another plush dinosaur away to one of my readers!  Cleo has become a favorite around here, especially to my 2 1/2-year-old daughter (who does not quite understand that he’s not really hers).  He’s made of a soft fleece, is stuffed with cotton, and carries a bell inside that makes a light jingly noise (not too loud, thankfully) when he is shaken.  He has embroidered eyes and the “spikes” on his back crinkle when touched!


All in all, he’s cute and the perfect bassinet-mate for Isaac when he’s born!  I’m really happy with Cleo and love Sara’s other creations as well.  I’m thinking I need one of those ouchie paks next.  :)
