Even in this technological age where video games and iPads rule, my kiddos can't resist some soft, snuggly stuffed animals. Sure, stuffies and Teddy Bears may not have a touchscreen or all the bells and whistles of electronics, but there's something so comforting and fun about them. These are classics that will never go out of style, no matter how much technology advances.
Sophie and Xander both love playing with stuffed animals, and they both still sleep with them as well. Xander's room is especially full of stuffed toys, since his bedroom has a fun jungle theme, complete with a huge monkey wall mural.
So recently, when I learned about the awesome animal pals at Bears for Humanity, I couldn't wait to check them out. Bears for Humanity offers some truly adorable Teddy Bears as well as cheerful animals such as a monkey, a turtle, a giraffe and more!
Not only are these stuffed toys absolutely beautifully made, they're hand-sewn in the USA using the highest quality, 100% GOTS certified Organic Cotton. Their filling is made from recycled plastic bottles and caps, which gives them some weight and heft. These are NOT flimsy at all.
The best part? Bears for Humanity is a very socially responsible company as well. They are doing absolutely fantastic things to give back and help change the lives of many.
Bears for Humanity uses Fair Trade practices, and employs at-risk women from welfare-to-work programs right here in the United States. This helps not only our economy by keeping jobs here in America, it also helps families and the communities we live in.
In addition to being a wonderful employer, Bears for Humanity also gives to children in need. For every bear sold, they donate a free bear just like yours to a needy child. These gifts come along with a personal note from YOU, if you so desire. How awesome is that?! They have a list of local and national charities, if you'd like to take a look at some of the worthwhile causes they support.
We received 3 stuffed animals from Bears for Humanity to check out for ourselves. We chose animals that would suit Xander's jungle-themed room: the Giraffe, the Monkey, and the Turtle. Okay, so turtles don't really go with the whole jungle theme, but Xander wanted the turtle. I couldn't tell him no.
When our new animal companions arrived, the first thing I noticed was that they are definitely very well made. These are hand-sewn, and are expertly made by skilled seamstresses. There are no buttons, eyeballs, or anything else that could come loose and prove to be a choking hazard. The organic cotton used to make these toys is nice and soft, perfect for snuggling. As I mentioned before, these animals have a little weight to them, thanks to the recycled plastic fill. They are durable, and definitely made to withstand constant use and abuse from their loving owners.
Overall, we're definitely loving Bears for Humanity. The kiddos absolutely love their new plush pals, and they carry them all over the place. For any child who loves having their favorite stuffed animals in tow, these would make wonderful companions. They're even hypoallergenic, which makes them ideal even for kids with sensitive skin.
But the best part?
Your Bears for Humanity purchase will not only bring a smile to your child's face, it will also help others, from their at-risk employees to the communities we live in. Remember, Bears for Humanity also donates a bear to a child in need for every teddy bear purchase! Now that's something that I definitely feel good about!
