RIO 2 Plush & Books – Only $5 each at Kohl’s to benefit Kohl’s Cares

RIO 2 Plush Kohl's Cares

If you happen to follow me on Instagram (SheScribes) you might have noticed a photo I posted last week featuring Blu the bird from the films RIO and RIO 2, standing along side a RIO 2 book called “Blu’s Wild Journey”. The photo is pictured above. The adorable plush and fun book are a part of the Kohl’s Cares program.

I love the merchandise available through the Kohl’s Cares program. It’s the first thing I look for every time I walk into my local Kohl’s stores.

The Kohl’s Cares program offers a lot of beloved children’s books with matching plush toy. Each is priced at only $5.00. Through the Kohl’s Cares program 100% of the profits from the sale of the special merchandise goes towards children’s health and education programs across the country.

In addition to adorable plush toys and children’s books, Kohl’s Cares also offers “grown up” goodies too which are also a part of the Kohl’s Cares program. I have picked up some pretty amazing cookbooks through the program. It makes me feel great knowing that the $5 goes towards women’s health programs too. Plus I score great merchandise for only $5.

Many of the Kohl’s Cares merchandise makes great gifts too. I have stocked up on a few pieces from time to time to give as gifts.

I’ve been collecting a lot of the Kohl’s Cares merchandise over the years. I especially love their Dr. Seuss offerings and beloved books from my childhood.

Do you remember the book “Put Me in the Zoo”? That book and plush was one of the Kohl’s Cares offerings several months ago (the book and plush are NO LONGER AVAILBLE).

Put Me in the Zoo

Plush and book are no longer available

How cute is he? He’s a large plush too – and it cost me only $5!

Kohl’s Department Stores has partnered with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to bring consumers exclusive merchandise from the film RIO 2, which is now in theaters.

The following merchandise is currently available (until supplies last).

  • RIO 2 “Blu’s Wild Journey” storybook
  • Blu, Gabi, and Luiz plush toys
  • Family-style jigsaw puzzle featuring artwork from RIO 2

If you have a child or grandchild who loves RIO/RIO 2 these would make a fantastic gift. Pair the book with plush and puzzle and you have a perfect birthday, holiday or any time gift.

The book is hard cover (with dust jacket). It’s a fun story based on the RIO/RIO 2 characters. It’s sure to be a bed time favorite.

I love the Blu and Gabi plush toys (I have Gabi too). They are very well made and a great size – perfect for hugging and snuggling with. I nee dto pick up Luiz to add to my RIO/RIO 2 “family”. LOL!

Kohl’s Cares is also currently offering a great cookbook called “Woman’s Day Easy Everyday Dinners.” This cookbook is also only $5.00. I have not had a chanced to view the book yet but if it’s anything like other cookbooks I purchased through Kohl’s Cares I’m sure it’s fabulous. Cookbooks also make great gifts (new home, engagement party, wedding…). And for only $5 you can’t beat the price.

Kohl’s Cares products are available online and at Kohl’s stores nationwide. To find a Kohl’s store near you (or to purchase online) visit Kohls.com. You can also find Kohl’s on Facebook and Twitter.
