Welcome to the final part of
our ”Plush With A Purpose” roundup:
I love kid’s drawings. They’re genuine, funny, inspiring, and an insightful look into a kid’s perception of the world. I love to display Teagan’s drawings. Each drawing or painting has it’s own story which Teagan proudly tells. Children’s artistic expression is the inspiration for the last company featued in our Plush With a Purpose roundup. Aminals are a line of organic plush characters with a story and an eco-friendly mission!
There are eleven characters in the Aminals family. We received the Aminal character Dinasor. He is so soft and adorable! The doll makes me smile every time I look it. We absolutely love the fact that each Aminal was inspired by kids’ drawings! Could you imagine all the cool creatures you used to draw now living as a huggable-soft doll? Both Teagan and my husband love the bright green color and caricatural design. My daughter pronounces “Dinasor” exactly the way it is spelled. Teagan found out what a Dinasor was and now trudges around roaring like a dinosaur!
Not only are these toys entertaining but they’re also safe for your kids. Parents can feel good knowing that the dolls are 100% organic cotton and certified organic by the Global Organic Textile Standard. Aminals are free from chemicals and made with low-impact vegetable dyes. What I find especially endearing is that your child will see how their Aminal changes as it ages (great way to talk about growing up). The colors will fade and the stuffing will move around. The Aminal site has a section on composting your old Aminals! The creators of Aminals made this eco-friendly statement, “The animals are designed with the intent to make a fully recyclable product that can disappear naturally, without contributing toxic chemicals that poison our soil, air and waterways, or the huge amounts of material waste in landfills.”
