***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***
This may be my favorite freebie title of all time. Is it the name of a band? Is it the newest Pixar film? Nope, it’s just the two words that describe the options that this week’s SIX winners will get to choose from thanks to Cardboard Safari. They’re the makers of cool, quirky animal trophies that are formed entirely out of intersecting pieces of laser-cut cardboard. So if you ever wanted that big moose head on your wall but didn’t have the heart to bust out your inner-Palin, they’ve got you covered.
In fact, Cardboard Safari is so environmentally friendly that their cardboard is all recycled, non-toxic and made locally. They’re actually based in nearby Charlottesville, VA and we’ve bumped into their quirky, cool products all over town lately (our friend Noah even helped design their skull-themed products) so we figured it was about time we did a giveaway with them.
And just as the post title suggests, we’re giving away two of their newer products as they continue to expand beyond their signature trophies. This week’s winners will get to choose from their new Full-Body Rhino OR Astro Rocket (shown above). Each comes in three sizes in either brown or white cardboard (though they’re entirely paintable if you’d prefer, say, a pink rhino). They’re shipped flat and assembly is easy (kinda like a fun puzzle).
In fact, you can check out the video below of us putting together the – prepared to be shocked – small white rhino that we snagged for our very own home. You know how Sherry is about white animal accessories. You can also watch the video here on YouTube if the video isn’t working for you below. The whole thing took us about 15 minutes, not including a bathroom break for a certain four-legged family member.
Here are your giveaway details for this week:
- PRIZE: Full-Body Rhino or Astro Rocket of any size and color from Cardboard Safari (each valued up to $58)
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “RHINO ME” or “ROCKET ME” based on your preferred prize and…
- BONUS QUESTION: Tell us what your dream adventure vacation is. Would you love to go on a real life wild safari? Or maybe someday take a trip into space? Feel free to stretch the bounds of reality here – we’re dreaming after all!
- GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, August 5th at 8pm EST
- NUMBER OF WINNERS: Six!
- PRIZE SHIPS: Within the US of A only this time
- USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner(s) will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday. Good luck!

Rocket me! It would be great for my young son’s room.
Rhino Me!I dream of Africa or white sand beaches or suba diving with sharks, and maybe one day it will happen. I spent my honeymoon in Vegas at a giant bicycle convention and though I love bikes I deserve another honeymoon!
This has nothing to do with cardboard cut-outs, but I just had to comment when I read the last line of your post. My hubby got me an iPod (the first nano) for Christmas a few years ago, and he had it inscribed with “Happy wife, happy life.” It should be a universal sentiment among husbands. :)

Dream vacation would be Paris followed by a month on Lake Como. And of course I would not have to worry about the cost at all!
Rhino me!! And my dream vacation would be to visit Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. I just think it would be so cool to get to taste the wallpaper and get play in the bubble room!
RHINO ME!!!!! Someday my husband and I WILL spend a couple weeks in the Alaskan Wilderness! That’s our dream vacation.
Jenn L says
Just send me to the beach with a babysitter, and I’m content.
My dream vacation would be to spend a summer staying in Tuscany with my family at an old farmhouse.
These are awesome! Rhino Me!
RHINO ME! My dream adventure: trip around the Pacific rim. China, Japan, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific Islands, Chile, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, California coast, Vancouver, Alaska! I’m not sure about Siberia though.
ROCKET ME ! My dream vacation is a shelter-to-shelter hike in the Swiss Alps. Hopefully the shelters have hot tubs!
Rhino Me! Please! He would look great near my white ceramic bull – or maybe they could stare at each other across the room. My dream vacation would be a trip to the Galapagos Islands! But I’d happily settle for a trip throughout Europe.
ROCKET ME! We have a mid-century house and are capitalizing on that for our furnishings and some decor. The rocket would totally fit in!
Dream vacay would be Italy, England, France all at once and for a couple months!

RHINO ME!!! What a cool idea, love it! I want a dream vacation through Europe, of course all paid for by someone other than me!!!!
My dream adventure vacation would be to go to Costa Rica and spend time exploring all of the great parks and seeing all of the flora and fauna that reside there exclusively.
Closely followed by a trip to Machu Picchu and then the Mayan ruins in Mexico.
Kim S says
Fiji would be awesome…if I could blink my eyes and be there and skip the 20-something hours on a plane, that would be even more awesome. :o)
My dream vacay would be to get to finally go on a honeymoon, white sandy beaches would be perfect or to Poland to visit my husband’s family. My husband is an Aerospace Engineer who works for NASA, he always says he’d like to go to the moon!
“RHINO ME” My dream vacation would be to go to Capri… and drink all the best wines!
I love the Cardboard Safari products!
Our dream vacationm, and African Safari of course!
Rhino Me please!!!!
Our dream vacation is at least 2 weeks in Chile. I love that you can see a glacier, explore wine country, go to the desert, and surf all in one country. We love to be active on vacation and this completely fits the bill. It’s also not a total tourist trap and relatively unique and exotic. We’ve started a savings fund for it at http://www.smartypig.com –an interesting “piggy bank” savings account for specific savings goals.
Rhino me! I would really love to go on a safari someday. I’ll be saving up for a while though!
RHINO ME! Dream vacation would have to be Australia/New Zealand or Montreal in the winter.
