I was first introduced to Bears for Humanity at Toy Fair this year and was really impressed with not only the quality of their bears, but their mission. I was excited to learn about their new line of Animal Pals that are perfect for children of all ages!
Bears for Humanity
If you’re not familiar with Bears for Humanity, they’re a socially conscious company that believes in organic products, healthy children and a sustainable environment. The bears they build are hand sewn and stuffed right here in the US by participants in Welfare-to-Work programs. In fact, Bears for Humanity has created jobs for women and at-risk mothers by partnering with the CalWorks program. You can learn more about it on the Bears for Humanity website.
Bears For Humanity Animal Pals and Teddy Bears are manufactured using 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton. The stuffing that is used for their toys is made from recycled plastic bottles and caps and is free of chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals.
One of the things I love the most about Bears for Humanity is that for each bear purchased, one is given to a child in need! This is through charity partners like Toys for Tots, Save the Children, and other reputable organizations. The partnership with these organizations help ensure that the bears are given to little ones who need them the most, whether it’s a child who is ill, underprivileged, or going through some other circumstance.
We recently received a dinosaur, turtle, and monkey from the new line of Animal Pals from Bears for Humanity. Both E and Aric were really excited about our new plush friends!
There are 13 Animal Pals to choose from on the website. Not only are they super cute, they’re soft and huggable. Each measures 12″ in length and 4.5″ in width which makes them the perfect size for little hands. Plus, the floppy arms and legs of each Animal Pal makes them easy love on!
Aric has really taken a liking to the dinosaur. He usually carries around a blanket for comfort and soothing but now he brings along his dino. It’s funny becasue Aric rarely plays with plush toys and I never thought of him as the stuffed animal type of kid but he sure loves snuggling with the soft plush! He nuzzles his dinosaur and kisses it, It’s the cutest sight!
Bears for Humanity Animal Pals make the the perfect gift for any occasion and for children of all ages. Plus, it’s a gift that keeps on giving! With that being said, I feel that it makes a great teaching tool. It’s a wonderful way for my kids to learn about philanthropy in a way that they can understand.
