Care for the Rare
Posted on

As a mom of three boys (ages 3, 8, and 10), I can tell you they still appreciate plush toys.
Just this afternoon, Rustan’s sent two pieces from their endangered animal collection. Since there were two I gave them to the two younger ones. Christian got the cockatoo and Markus got the mouse deer


Trouble ensued when Ben apparently liked the mouse deer too. Luckily it didn’t turn into a biggie as they have tons of other plush toys.
I think it’s great that Rustan’s has collaborated with renowned plush toy manufacturer, Gund. Together they have produced an exclusive 11-piece collection of endangered animal plush toys. Supported by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the aim is to spread awareness among the young for the conservation of Philippine Endangered Species (PES).


Says Rustan’s President Zenaida Tantoco: “Rustan’s is proud of this collaboration with Gund because it is one of the more creative ways to spread awareness to our loyal customers. Not only will you receive a nice plush toy for Christmas, you will also know more about what’s going on in our environment.”

From now until December 31, 2011 a minimum single receipt purchase of Php 10,000 gives you a chance to choose any one of 11 GUND toy designs. Just present your receipt to the concierge to claim any of these special gifts:
Philippine Eagle (Haring Ibon) and Blue-Naped Parrot (Pikoy)

Bearcat (Binturong)
