Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall…
You know the rest! I love classic poems and stories. Sure, I expose my kids to lots of new stories, but there is clearly a reason some of them have been around for decades (or more!). Zubels has created a line of handmade, knit organic dolls featuring some favorite nursery rhyme characters. We were lucky enough to receive Mr. D for review, based off the ever-popular Humpty Dumpty, of course. I love Zubel’s description of him—“He always puts his sunny side up!”. Brendan instantly took to his new “doll”. The cotton is really soft and the doll is oh-so-huggable. I love the little yellow bow-tie, too–it’s the perfect accessory on a doll for my little man!
They have more than just character dolls. Zubels is redefining what it means to be a “doll”. From traditional fairy tale characters like Little Red Riding hood to a knit egg with legs and a bowtie (Hello, Mr. D) to a Pirate doll with a peg-leg and an eyepatch, there is definitely a doll for every kid on your shopping list. I think their Pretty “Pearly” Penny mermaid and “Arrr-Neee” the pirate would make a great sister/brother gift, too!
And, why have a sock monkey when you can have a ROCK monkey?
You can find Zubels at fine toy stores nationwide and on Amazon.com. The 12” dolls (like the one reviewed) retail for a very reasonable $24.99, but some were as low as $19.99 on Amazon.
Zubels is part of Renzo Company Inc, a family owned business and specializes in handmade knit toys, quality gifts, accessories and apparel. Their organics collection uses 100% certified organic cotton yarns. Zubels uses eco-friendly low-impact dyes and has minimal packaging to reduce waste in our environment. All Zubels characters have been tested safe and are suitable for ages birth and up. All toys are made in the USA!
