Christmas gift help

My son has a fascination with Beavers. He takes 4-5 book out of the library each week about them, pretends to be them and talks about them all the time.
The only thing he has asked for as a Christmas gifts is a Beaver toy which wouldn't be too hard but he is very specific. He would like it to be a stuffed/soft Beaver and for it to come with a tree that the Beaver could chew down and then have the tree be Velcro so it can go back together. I know this is a crazy long shot but does anyone know of anything like this or someone who could make something like this.
He told me today that this is the only thing he wants and anything else he wants Santa to give to other children who don't have as many toys as he does

Oh how sweet... I hope you can find a wham to make one! (I live in Oregon ... One of our colleges the Mascot is the Beavers. My son is loves his Beavers hat. There are lots of "Beavers" merchandise like hats and jackets.)


IF you could find a stuffed beaver maybe some one could just make the tree. I think the tree could be made in layers. Maybe like star shapes. With velcro inbetween the layers.

This is a cookie tree but kinda the same concept.

Good Luck! Your son sounds very sweet!

Re: Christmas gift help

Could you cut a branch and remove the bark and cut into a few peices and staple velcro rounds the the ends? You could maybe even paint the top green to look like leaves. I did find this super cute beaver:

ETA: You wouldn't have to remove the bark but it might be kinda messy. You also might want to bake the wood in the oven for a few mins to kill any bugs etc. or you could buy a think dowel rod if you didn't want to damage any trees. Good Luck I hope you can come up with something.
