Kohl’s Department Stores is inviting children and families across the country to indulge in playful curiosity while giving back to their communities with the latest Kohl’s Cares merchandise program. Never heard of Kohl’s Cares? well, each year Kohl’s offers exclusive hardcover edition books and other items for a limited time in store & online, usually of our children’s favorite characters like Curious George®, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story, Dr. Seuss. Each year there is a new theme. Each book only costs $5. You’ll also find coordinating plush toys & other products as well. All for only $5. Only for a limited time though!
The Kohl’s Cares books are perfect for stocking up, either to donate, or for the holidays. I personally love to pick up the books & the plushes & stick them in the closet for Christmas. The books as well as the stuffed animals are all of superior quality. In fact in our house the Kohl’s cares books & stuffed animals are among our favorites. They really are that nice. For only $5 they’re so incredibly affordable you can’t pass them up.
