Anamalz Eco-Friendly Wooden Animals

Have you seen anamalz before?  We ran across these adorable bendable animals a few months back in a specialty store near us and were immediately smitten.  As cute as they looked in the display, they were even more irresistible when played with.  Because of their bendable limbs, they are fun to position and pose however you would like and it added so much more fun to our play.  We seriously entertained ourselves with that display for the entire time we were at the store, and then when it was time to leave, we said our reluctant goodbyes.

Anamalz bendable animals I wasn’t surprised at all when anamalz made it onto my daughter’s birthday wishlist a few weeks later and we were both thrilled when she opened presents at her party and found that a few contained some anamalz friends.  All of her friends also went crazy for the little anamalz, and as they sat and played with them, I made a note that we should definitely wrap up a few as presents for her friends throughout the year. 

Because anamalz are made with a combination of wood and fabrics and each have at least one body part that is fully bendable, they add a whole new dimension to the traditional animal figures and make playtime even more fun.  Being able to pose your critters and give them their own personality really gets little ones’ imaginations going and allows them to add in another level of play and creativity that we love.

We were really excited to review a few more anamalz this spring and add to our collection as well as add one of the anamalz trees to our play.  Since they arrived, we have spent hours “feeding” the bendable animals the apples off the tree and it’s one of my favorite new toys because it goes so well with all the animals and makes setting up scenes even more fun. 

I haven’t seen the trees in retail yet, but that’s likely because they are flying off the shelves as the anamalz craze picks up.  After seeing some of the awesome anamalz playsets they have pictured online {the farm! the treehouse! LOVE!}, I am hoping we get a chance to see one in person sometime soon once the stores start stocking them.

Besides being adorable, fun, and a great way to inspire imaginations, I also love anamalz as a company.  Their toys are designed in Australia and made from sustainable maple wood and textiles, which means that in addition to being irresistible, they are also eco-friendly. It’s really no wonder they have been collecting awards since they were released, and that they are one of the companies you should definitely be watching over the next few months.  With the release of their much anticipated prehistoric series which joins the Farm, Australian and Wild collections this year, they are going to be a big hit for birthdays and holidays for both boys and girls.

  1. We have a bunch of adorable anamalz, but I like some of the newer ones! One I think is a moose, a llama, and the baboon. I also love the tree and the farm!

  10. We have a few anamalz already, and my son loves them! The textures are wonderful and the artistry is simple yet engaging. I’d love to add the llama, donkey and the bull to our growing collection.
