Junzo Terada’s Magical Menagerie

I have long been a fan of Junzo Terada — I have his Happy Animal Time book of postcards and I use them as cards for every occasion (birthdays, new babies, holidays, etc.). His drawings are so endearing and the colours are so beautiful.

I just recently discovered his Magical Menagerie which is a collection of 20 different punch-out animal cards.  The cards can be used as gift-cards (each card comes with its own envelope) or can simply be used for rainy-day fun for the kids.  The shapes can be punched out and easily assembled into the cutest little animals — so cute you’ll want to display them on a shelf! Esther recently sent the crocodile card for my son’s birthday and he loved putting the pieces together and is still carrying his little crocodile around proudly. It’s such a cute gift card idea. You can purchase the Magical Menagerie from our bookshop (both UK and US).

Courtney what a coincidence – I bought a box of these only last week. We all had fun putting them together and now they are divided (equally) between my daughter and my son’s bedroom! And…they look beautiful…I love the patterns and colours…a great way to decorate a bedroom.
