Our daughters love their cute and cuddly plush toys. They have a jamboree of stuffed animals and dolls that are constantly marching, flying about or are just being loved. Although we cherish all these adorable creatures, we wanted to look for more than a cute face. A new plan was devised to seek out companies that create plush toys who have a goal of being more than just being lovable. Our special search lead us to 5 companies whom we feel have a unique ”purpose”.
Welcome to the first part of our ”Plush With A Purpose” roundup:
Robots With A Cause
Kauzbots are a line of soft colorful plush robots. They were created to inspire kids and adults to change the world. There are 10 lovable, 19” tall robots to choose from! Each Kauzbot is passionate about a particular cause ranging from planting trees, researching autism and supporting women who face breast cancer. 10% of proceeds are donated to charities close to the Kauzbots’ heart like Talk About Curing Autism and Breast Cancer Network of Strength. Speaking of hearts, all the Kauzbots come with his or her own plush heart you can insert to the back compartment. Utilize these impressive toys to teach kids about giving, charities and compassion. I love toys that inspire conversation and curiosity. It’s never too early to teach our kids about caring for and helping others. ThatsITmommy loves the quality of these plushes, the fun patterns and especially appreciate the determination of the team behind the Kauzbots. A Kauzbot would make a great gift for anyone. You can’t beat a gift that has many purposes like putting a smile on someone’s face and donating to a special cause while teaching your kids to be compassionate towards the needs of others.
