I have always been an avid fan of stuffed animals. I have my teddy bear from when I was a child, always bought them for my own children and now that my grandchildren are here they have several as well. I believe that is why I love Stompeez so much. Not only are they adorable animals but very useful as well. These Illinois weathers are not always the tamest and well whenever we can have fun wearing something on our feet all the better.
