mary meyer: stuffed toys with a green message

I can count on one hand the number of new stuffed animals that Beckett has acquired in her almost three years.  She has the Rainbow Bright from my childhood and sleeps with a birthday Care Bear from Jacob’s younger days and her basket is full of hand-knit, one of kind crafts fair finds from when we were wee ones.  They have character and are made with love, but they have moved from our memories to her real life.  I have pulled out a few long-ago stashed stuffed animals from Jacob’s and my childhood for this new little bundle of joy we are expecting, but I have also been looking for something or someone that could be special and “just his” or “just hers” – not big sister sharing or mama or papa hand-me-down.  I found it with Mary Meyer’s line of greener stuffed animals.

Mary Meyer is a family run business in Vermont that bears the distinction of being Vermont’s oldest toy stuffed toy company and gets 100% of its energy from cow power!  Cow Power is electricity that’s been produced by methane-generators that are fueled by cow manure.

The greener line of toys from Mary Meyer includes the Earthmates made from 100% organic cotton and my personal favorite – the Fuzz that Wuzz that’s made from 100% recycled plastic PET bottles.   The Fuzz that Wuzz toys are surprisingly soft and cuddly and bear no resemblance to their former counterparts.  The stuffed toys have adorably curly hair that’s been gently dyed and resembles some of the most whimsical characters – a moose, cow, turtle and bear.  The Earthmates collection has a sublime innocence to them.  The natural dyes are low-key and perfect for a special little one.  I love the rotund bellies and plump bums that have a Buddha-esque quality as the monkey, elephant and frog!

Mary Meyer has done a wonderful job of keeping a small, family-run business feel while staying competitive against big-name companies by using eco-friendly materials and manufacturing methods!
