Polar Bear / Panda Bear Pattern

These bears are perfect for animal lovers, whether they’re for someone you know or yourself! While it is universally acknowledged that polar bears and panda bears are pretty cool (pun unintended), they are also known to be endangered species. Both have found themselves in this position due to the loss of their natural habitats, be it the industrialization of bamboo forests or the melting of ice in the arctic. The debate on this topic is an interesting one and highly controversial. Nevertheless, whether you believe that action must be taken or believe that these extinctions are inevitable like the thousands preceding it, this pawttern is pawsitively to die fur!

Pattern

Punk Dino

The Punk Dino enjoys listening to loud music, dancing to loud music and playing loud music. It always has a great deal of energy and can travel surprisingly quickly, considering how short its legs are. It is recommended that you keep the Punk Dino away from any guitars you don’t wish to replace, otherwise it is quite a tame Dino and knows better than to eat carpets or sharpen its teeth on furniture.

Bow-Tie Dino

This Dino is a studious character. It likes to wear a bow tie (bow ties are cool) and can often be found reading while curled up in a corner. The Bow-tie-Dino is a fantastic gift for all ages since it has recently been trained not to eat fingers! According to itself, it enjoys long discussions about philosophy, literature and dessert. If it had to describe itself in one word, apparently it would be “quarky”.
