Wildlife & The City, a Safari Review & Giveaway!

I’m a sucker for awesome toys – especially when they double as great decorating tchotchke’s! Safari was cool enough to send me the Eastern Screech Owl replica that I fell in love with at Toy Fair, and I still can’t get over the amazing detail and life-like appearance! Actually, when I went to take photos of it at my local park an older gentleman who was walking his dog thought my sister and I were taking pictures of an actual living owl – how crazy is that

Safari Eastern Screech Owl
I’ve loved owls since I was little when my mom used to call me her “night owl”, I’ve seen a few in person, and even named The NYC Talon based off of an owl’s talon – and I own a fair amount of owl-motif items, and I’m so excited to add this one to my collection! Right now it’s residing as a decorative end to my bookshelf, although an errant ring will occasionally find itself hanging off one of it’s prominent ear tufts – I really love it!

Safari also sent me the coolest TOOB ever! The NYC TOOB! You guys know how much I love my city – after all this is The NYC Talon! I was going to keep them on my shelf, but now I think I might also use them as photo prop pieces for my blog store when I re-brand and revamp it.

They really are all so amazingly detailed, I was turning them over in my hand and was shocked with how beautifully made they were – and every piece was a fitting tribute to the big apple!

Safari has been around for over 30 years now, and are dedicated to sharing the unique beauty of wildlife with children through their professionally sculpted and hand painted (and often to scale) replicas of wildlife! But they also have the most awesome historical themed replicas as well as humans, fantasy themed pieces, and more!

Safari would love to share this mission with you and are offering one super lucky NYC Talon reader a replica OR a TOOB of your choice – and will include an extra surprise for the winner if he/she is following them on all their social media accounts! Pretty awesome, huh?

    I would love the backyard birds toob! I should probably say that it would be for a child in my life, but actually I think they would really brighten up my workspace.
