Kohl’s provided me with a Little Critter’s Kohl’s Cares package for sharing the information in this post. All opinions are my own.

Kohls Cares Lil Critters with books

My son has a massive stuffed animal collection. In fact, the only collection larger than that is his book collection! I can’t help it, there are so many great books and adorable snuggly stuffed animals out there. Those two collections have one thing in common: Kohl’s Cares. With stuffed animals and gorgeous hardcover books at just $5 each, it was easy to amass a collection that rivals a toy store and a library!

It’s even easier when you know that the $5 you’re spending on adorable new plush friend or bedtime story is going to help other children in need. Did you know that 100% of the net profit from the Kohl’s Cares collections goes towards children’s health and education initiatives nationwide? They’ve raised over $231 million since the program began? That’s incredible!

Kohls Care Abbie

Now that I have a niece, it’s time to start building her collection! I received the adorable Little Critter stuffed animals and books you see above. I thought they would be just perfect for Abbie! She’s only 7 months old, but you’re never too little to appreciate books. I wish I had a picture of her reaction to the girl Little Critter. I held it in front of her and she looked for a moment, then laughed as she grabbed it and bit its’ bow! She’s so stinkin’ cute.

The Little Critters books available through Kohl’s Cares are perfect for getting your child ready for back to school time. Aside from the two I received: Litter Critter Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Critter Bedtime Stories,  there are several other fun books, activities and stuffed animals in the current Kohl’s Cares offerings. These include:

  • Books:  Little Critter’s Bedtime Storybook, Little Critter Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Critter Little Red Riding Hood, Little Critter Hansel and Gretel and Little Critter 3 pack Board Book Set
  • Plush: Little Critter, Little Sister, Bear and Wolf
  • Other Goodies:  Zoo Matching Game, 2 pack Doodle Book
  •  Online Exclusives: Little Critter Where’s My Sneaker? (a lift-the-flap-book) and Mouse plush

They also have a few great items for adults, including The Mom 100 Cookbook and Good Housekeeping Stain Rescue!

At just $5 each, and with the proceeds going to such great causes, Kohl’s Cares has always been my favorite way to grow my son’s library and stuffed animal collection. They also make such fantastic holiday gifts that won’t bust your bank account. Head to your local Kohl’s or shop Kohl’s Cares online.
