I have a secret drawer high up in my bedroom closet... It's filled with yet-to-be-discovered toys, trinkets, and treasures for the kiddies, and chock-full of silly surprises. It's for rainy days... for potty-training triumphs... and, yes, for those days my son pitches a major fit about me leaving to go to work. "I'll bring you home a little present," I say--and, miraculously, the crying quiets almost as quickly as it began. That's right, I'm pro-bribery. Because, when it comes to making your kids happy and/or surviving the long days of parentin toddlers, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Mainly, I've stocked away some fun boxes of crayons, coloring books, art supplies, rubber balls, and other assorted Target dollar-section goodies. But I was really excited about the latest addition to the bribery bucket--so excited, that the last time I left the kids for a few hours, I returned and immediately gave them these fun and furry finds. (I got the biggest hugs before and after, so I know they were both happy to see me and thrilled to get some awesome goodies!)

Surprizamals are adorable mini stuffed animals hidde inside a fun red ball. And you never know which pet you’re going to get! You just pop it open—and you might find Hailey the Horse, Mango the Monkey, Scruffy the Dog, or Gemma the Unicorn. You could even score a rare Ellie the Elephant, Rex the Lion, Mandy the Panda, or even the ultra-rare Moe the Bare. They’re cute. They’re cuddly. And they’re collective! I picked up a bunch of these—because my littles are now on a mission to score the whole gang. And they’re so affordable—I don’t mind if we get a few lambs! The anticipation is what makes Surpizamals so fun!
