You all know by now that I LOVE finding great natural and organic products for my family. Especially for my children! I want to teach them from an early age how to help preserve the world we live in by turning to sustainable, eco-friendly products whenever possible. After all, we only have one planet, and if we don't help to preserve it now, our great-grandchildren may not be able to walk through the forest or go outside and breathe in fresh air. Everything we do NOW affects future generations. As a parent, I feel it is my duty to teach my babies to care about the world we live in and reflect that in their lifestyles.
I recently stumbled across a fantastic site dedicated to providing useful, adorable products that are also environmentally responsible. Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods carries a ton of different products for families. From rattles to organic tableware to layette items to organic plush animals, Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods truly has something for everyone. They even carry special holiday and seasonal items! Dandelion is a family owned business, which is something I love, and they take great pride in the high quality products that they have to offer. Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods even makes regular charitable donations to various programs, such as 1% For The Planet. I love a company with a heart that chooses to give back to the community. In today's society, there is too much apathy, so I commend companies that care about the world around them and make conscious efforts to improve the quality of life for so many.
I was lucky enough to receive 3 too-cute-for-words organic plush animals to review. We received a Dandelion Organic Plush Turtle, a BELIEVE Organic Plush Small Elephant, and an absolutely mischievous looking little Monkey hand puppet from Dandelion's Bamboo Zoo line. (Have I ever told you all that I love bamboo? If you don't own any clothing made of this sustainable material, I highly suggest you try it. Bamboo is my fabric of choice!)
Just take a look at how cute these plush buddies are! Who said organic had to be dull, bland and boring?
We LOVE the Organic Plush animals from Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods! The turtle is my favorite, since it is very, very squeezable and cuddly. His body features a very soft waffle-weave, and his shell and feet feature a soft cotton terry fabric. There are so many different textures to stimulate baby's senses as well. And this awesome little guy is made or organic cotton which is machine washable! (BIG plus in my home!) Like other plush toys from Dandelion, the turtle is filled with soft corn fibers, making this awesome companion 100% environmentally friendly.
Xander seems to really like the BELIEVE Organic Plush Small Elephant the best. I think it's because the smaller size if perfect for his little hands. The elephant is super-soft and cuddly as well, and the attention to detail is amazing. From the tusks all the way to the knotted tail, this little guy was made to be loved by babies. My son even teethes on the elephant's trunk and tail! And since this toy is made from organic cotton, I don't have to worry about what nasty chemicals he may be "eating". The BELIEVE Organic Plush line is also machine washable!
Now Sophie, my toddler, LOVES the Monkey Hand Puppet from the Bamboo Zoo line. I can't blame her one bit for being enamored of this little guy! The folks at Dandelion weren't monkeying around when they created this kid-pleasing line of Bamboo Velour products! Like all things bamboo I have encountered, this cheerful little hand-puppet is amazingly soft, with an almost velvety feel to it. It is the perfect size for my hand, and Sophie just loves when I make her monkey "talk" to her and clap his hands. Like the other plush I received, the Monkey Hand Puppet is very well constructed, and is machine washable.
Overall, we are thrilled with our experience with Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods. These products are not only made from organic, sustainable materials, they are adorable, durable, and sure to bring plenty of smiles to kids of all ages. I would definitely recommend Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods to anyone looking for fun, eco-friendly products that are made to last. Going green has never been so snuggly! I also wanted to note that Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods offers amazing customer care and have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Their staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and very prompt.
