Today’s cow is a pig… in a cow costume!

Our children’s world embraces animals of every kind, but I’m starting to see a prevalence for pigs and cows… and after today, for pigs as cows.

As I officially started my search for gift ideas for my son’s upcoming third birthday, I came across this little character at Barnes & Noble:

Isn’t she cute? My curious mind has to find out how a pig would ever come up with the idea of dressing up as a cow. After a few minutes on Amazon, I located the Olivia in a cow costume plush doll for only $13…

This doll was inspired by the book Olivia acts out, where Olivia tries out for the main lead in a school play as, you guess it, a cow!
