Soy Teddy Bear Now Available In Baby Panda Version [& Vice Versa]

soysilk_tai_shan.jpgTo commemorate the first birthday of Tai Shan, the baby panda the National Zoo leases from China [and you thought it was a gift...], the Zoo has issued a rare, special edition Tai Shan plush toy. By "rare," I mean "the only panda souvenir that doesn't look like it was made in iPhoto. And by "special," I mean made of SoySilk, a remarkable fiber that feels just like real polyester plush, but that's actually made from soy.

There are 2,000 SoySilk Tai Shans for sale at the zoo and online, so hurry up and buy some. Those $1.6 million leases don't pay themselves.

Hello
I need 1,000 panda bears in soysilk

how to get them?

Yeah, whenever I need 1,000 SoySilk panda bears, I just go down the street to the National Zoo.

Otherwise, you could always try looking on the Internet for two more seconds than you apparently did, because then you'd find the bears' manufacturer at tofubear.com.
