Pandas are popular animals that can tug at people's heart strings. These panda creations hope to do the same either to entice you into handing over your hard earned cash or to create animal awareness. Panda creations extend to almost every realm; from food to furniture, the classic black and white color scheme of these endangered bears helps to make them a design favorite.

Companies should find new ways to imbue their products or services with the virtues that their customers find desirable.
