Product Description
This bundle, introduced on Dr. Jane Goodall's 84th birthday, includes one copy of "Me...Jane" and one plush chimpanzee (based on Jane's beloved childhood toy chimpanzee named Jubilee). "Me...Jane" is a Caldecott Honor-winning picture book by Patrick McDonnell that tells the story of young Jane Goodall and her special toy chimpanzee. As young Jane observes the natural world around her with wonder, she dreams of "a life living with and helping all animals" — until one day she finds that her dream has come true. With anecdotes taken directly from Dr. Goodall's autobiography, this very true story is accessible for the very young (and young at heart). It includes a bookplate that has been hand-signed by Patrick McDonnell. The plush Jubilee toy (which measures 21" x 12") is made in the USA with 100% polyester shag fur and Minky fabric, 100% polyester fiberfill stuffing, and plastic (for the eyes). To clean, wipe with a damp cloth and then air dry. Machine washing is not recommended.

Help us fund animal rescues. It’s shimple!

Observation: the Jane Goodall pack (with plush toy & book] costs $85.00 plus tax. For persons who have very limited income, this is prohibitively expensive. As someone who has to choose between food or medications, yet might want to contribute & purchase this Jane Goodall pack, it is demoralizing that the price would be set so high. Making it impossible to participate and purchase the plush gorilla and book. Jane Goodall is someone I admire greatly. I have no admiration for companies who consistently set their prices for their products far above what someone who is not wealthy can afford. It saddens me greatly. You are disregardng an entire group of people who (by life circumstances, by illness, etc.] are not wealthy. Given the subject matter, I had thought better of Patrick McDonnell's compassion, integrity, and ethics. Sincerely, KimReply from Veronica Jancuk
Hi Kim, Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. We appreciate you bringing this up and to our attention. We try to price all of our products fairly while taking into account the costs involved with actually bringing that product to MUTTS customers (this include costs for manufacturing, material cost, overhead, etc.). The cost of this item is a bit higher due to the fact that it is a high-quality plush from the Jane Goodall Institute as well as a book that is personally signed by Patrick. I can assure you that we have the item priced fairly considering the costs I mentioned previously that are involved with it but we also understand that not everyone may be able to afford it (nor do we expect that would be the case). We offer a variety of products in the MUTTS shop at different price points to accommodate as many people (and budgets) as possible. Please know that we are completely grateful for you being a supporter and reader of MUTTS even if you're unable to purchase from the MUTTS shop. If you still feel like you want to contribute and purchase something, please free to consider one of our lower cost items in the shop that may be more within your budget as each and every purchase (no matter how big or small) helps animals. Lastly, if this specific product is not for you due to the pricing or any other reason, you are always welcome to contribute directly to The Humane Society of the United States, any local shelter of your choosing, or directly to the Jane Goodall Institute - in any amount you feel comfortable with or that fits within your budget. Again, we are so grateful that you support MUTTS and for your dedication to animals, and we appreciate you taking the time out to share your concerns with us. Sincerely, Veronica Team MUTTS
