Boys Will Be Boys . . . So Hand Make Their Toys: Minnie Bites Shop Feature

Today I'm featuring one of my new favorite Etsy shops,  Minne BITES.

MinneBITES are fun and unique pencil cases, zipper pouches, iPad and phone cases, animal shaped bags with zippers for mouths. They are designed and made by Mary, in her Minneapolis, Minnesota home.

How adorable are these shark pencil cases?  My boys LOVE them.  Notice the capitals? That's true love.  This shark is well-constructed with 100% cotton fabric. His body is made with charcoal gray fabric with a "sketchy" pattern. He has a sturdy black 5” metal zipper, and securely sewn in bright colored fins and tail of your choice. He is completely interfaced for shape and durability and fully lined with matching fabric. I can see my boys spending hours opening and clothing the zipper to "eat" the pencils.  Chomp!

They also come in a 7 inch, baby shark version that would be great as a party favor.  And I thought they couldn't get any cuter.

 MinneBITES also carries a collection of other animal themed zippered pouches as well as smartPhone pouches and wallets.

Mary has kindly offered our reader's a 10 % discount on anything in her Etsy shop between now and December 16th.  Simply enter the following code: OHBOY10 at check out to receive your discount.  Hurry on over because her stock is going fast.  If you see something you like, I highly recommend scooping it up and taking advantage of this great discount.
