Cardboard Animal Busts Save Lives

Here is evidence that a recycled cardboard trophy head is a viable substitute for the head of a real animal!

Matt, or Twitter user MountHopeHunter, describes himself as a:

Social media savvy hunter. Writer. Photographer. Game chef. Part wild. Weekend warrior. On a constant and rentless search for ‘it’

And while he might prefer a real animal head on his wall, he found an excellent compromise for himself and his girlfriend by hanging a handsome white Bucky.

Cardboard Safari does not support trophy hunting, but we do see ourselves as a clever and crafty substitute!

Try something different and Wow! your friends.

Look for the Rhino!

A Royal Ride

eyan_uj_blog_002Eyan the Elephant appreciates the safe refuge you have to offer.

He is not likely to do circus tricks, or bear your load, but will bring a sense of grace to any setting.

Eyan’s quiet intensity inspires people to get things done. He will remind you to finish your homework, to write that thank you letter, and to upload those photos from the zoo.

Have some projects to do around the house? Replace the grout, refinish that bookshelf, or paint the nursery? Eyan will give you the strength to persevere.

And if there are kids at play, you may just see Eyan’s trunk sway.

Though humble, Eyan loves to sport a fancy coat. You can find him in Floral, Modern art, or Flag prints.

He dreams of taking a leisurely stroll from London to Glasgow, and invites you to join him!

Look for the Rhino! And watch for more Safari Stories.

Both sets are available in Brown or White, Junior or Micro sizes, and are offered at a 10% discount on our website.

When a single animal bust leaves you wanting more, opt for the sets of four!

Hang them on your wall and listen closely. They have a great deal to discuss, from poaching concerns to habitat preservation.

They will remind you to Create, Conserve, and Be Clever!

Look for the Rhino!

From the Safari on Summer Solstice

A Flurry of Unicorns

There is nothing Merlin the Unicorn likes more than to share his magic. His mojo may be just what you need to complete that fantasy novel, epic poem, blog entry, or surreal painting (though his personal favorite is the Bay Area Figurative Movement).

He is also known to whisper lullabies to restless children.

Merlin loves family film night, especially if you’re watching something from the Harry Potter or Narnia series. He is also eager to sit through anything by Tarkovsky, Bunuel, or Švankmajer.

Merlin will inspire you to create, imagine, and aspire. He is shy, but generous.

Winter Solstice is Merlin’s favorite magical holiday. He is suited up in snowflakes, stars, and spangles to welcome the light! Invite him into your home to brighten up these dark winter days.

 

Wish Upon a Fish

Whether you are fishing for a mate, a job, or dinner, Wayne the Bass wants to make sure you succeed.

He is happy to hang around and wait for a catch, and may inspire the perfect line.

Have some secret wishes? Write them down on colorful scraps of paper, roll them up, and incorporate them into Wayne’s scales.

He will protect your dreams and serve as a reminder that patience reels in great rewards!

Wayne wants to wriggle into your holiday scene. He makes a great Advent calendar or Hanukkah day counter with plenty of compartments for notes, trinkets, and shiny objects.

Wayne is the fish that keeps on giving!

Meet Bucky, Dressed for Winter

bucky sweaterBucky the Deer is the perfect companion for home or office.

His calm presence will quell your anxiety.

Is there a deadline looming? Are you feeling the burden of financial stress? Wondering if that hot guy in the office will ever notice you? Training for a sports event? Gearing up for the hunt?

Bucky will remind you to tread lightly, eat your vegetables, find stillness in moments of terror, and leap ahead swiftly (all this in the safety of your own home).

Bucky has been around. From the stage set of the Jimmy Fallon Show to the pages of Southern Living Real Simple, and Sunset magazines. Bucky will remind you to live large and strut your stuff!

It’s getting cold outside and Bucky is bundled up for the holidays. He is very crafty and has knitted himself a few beautiful sweaters.
