blanketing the world with peep love

I promise the Peepcentric posts will die down soon, but for now, you will just have to bear with me. Anyway, I am not a collector of plushes, but I would be a liar if I told you I did not covet the new line of Peeps plushes. I resisted, and I was rewarded. Thank you, KnittyKim, for my Peep plush:

I am not worthy, but oh, how I love my Peeps plush. It is so deliciously soft! I find myself cupping it in the palm of my hand and petting it, peering lovingly into its chicky little eyes, rubbing it against my face! Aiyaaaaa!!!!
Okay, and now it’s time for a little contest! Check out these packages I mailed yesterday:

Can you guess how many packages of Peeps are in these parcels? I just want a total, and for clarification, when I talk about a package of Peeps, I am talking about the shrinkwrapped package that contains three smaller boxes. In chick terms, I’m talking a 15-count package. For the bunnies, it’s a 16-count package. If you require further information, please go here. What’s the prize? I don’t know yet, but hopefully it won’t be too lame, and it really should be Peep themed, don’t you think? So if you’re one of those weirdos who doesn’t like Peeps, you might want to sit this one out. Let the games begin!

    Hi, Mariko
    Yes, I guess the peeps must be your colour too! (the 5 count :))
    Anyway, we haven’t spotted any peeps here in mid-Wales, UK, but I saw a lovely topiary peep tree in a blog somewhere (sorry…). At the time I wondered what those little yellow things in the pic were…
    I always learn new things reading your blog, thanks a lot (or ‘diolch yn fawr’).
    Best wishes

    I have a stuffed Peep too, and I just love it to death. My mom surprised me with it about two weeks ago, and now it’s sitting on top of my computer monitor!
    I’m debating about whether to pick up one of the Peep baskets when they inevitably go on sale after Easter.

  22. Sara says:

    I agree- keep up the peep-centric posts! I have purchased nothing but health food (dried fruit and organic animal crackers)for my kids’ easter baskets but have a hidden stash of my own peeps and I’m not sharing :)
    I’d guess 40 packages.
    Happy Peep Day!

    Peeps are love! My sweet boyfriend bought me a purple Peeps bunny purse and one of the small Peeps chick baskets for Easter. My two year old niece got me a Peeps pen and a squishy Peeps pillow, and I just found out that I got a Peep egg decorating kit! You should join the Peeps fanclub!
    I’m going to guess 35 packages of Peeps! Are any of them the new red Target exclusive Peeps?
