A product review and a giveaway- Uncommon Goods Cardboard Animal Heads!

If you have been a long time reader of my blog, you know I love unique home decor products. Recently, I received a cool product from Uncommon Goods to review. Have you heard of Uncommon Goods?


Uncommon Goods is an online marketplace offering creatively designed, high-quality merchandise at affordable prices. Uncommon Goods provides shoppers thousands of fun, one-of-a-kind products ranging from home and garden products to jewelries and accessories. 

Below are a few of my favorite products from their website.

I picked one of the cardboard animal heads for this review. I thought it brings a touch of fun and whimsy to my son's bedroom.


I picked Fred Sr., the moose. It measures 24"W x 20"H x 19"D.


Each cardboard sheets are individually laser cut for precision fit. Each sections are numbered for easy reference during assembly.

I love my cardboard moose head! It looks adorable in my son's room. It only took my husband about 15 minutes to assemble. It came with detailed instructions and a small hole at the back for easy hanging. We already had a picture hook at home so it took us about 5 minutes (including measurement time) to hang it on the wall. I love that it was made in USA with 100% recycled cardboard.

*I received this product to review for free but the views and opinions expressed are entirely my own.
