I have bought the Hugg-a-Planet soft globe twice now. In both instances, I was exceptionally pleased with the product, the rapid delibery, the ease of it all. Most of all, I think that it is a wonderful toy for children! Linda, louisville KY
Especially this year it was refreshing to discover educational and safe toys made in the United States of America. Thank you for your wonderful products! Gail Peabody, MA
This was the most delightful shopping experience that I have ever had. I had ordered several items, one of which had been discontinued, and the company representative emailed me immediately and inquired as to my preference. The customer service could not have been more attentive or prompt. The items were nicer than represented on the website and received by my grandson in two days without any additional costs for the prompt shipping. The products preserve the planet while the company preserves an individuals faith in human nature and personal customer service and interactions over the internet. Congratulations to this company for providing excellent earth-friendly and American made products. Dorthy Yardley PA
