My boys were excited to get their new Bears for Humanity teddy bear in the mail. They were so cute with Sammie, they carried him around for a couple of days. He arrived in a box with his name on a tag and we fell instantly in ♥. We fluffed his fur with a brush so he could look his very best!
My 2 and 4 year old boys loved him at once! He is so soft, and he got plenty of snuggles. His limbs and head can swivel, which was a nice surprise. The fur is organic and real soft. The organic hemp is a naturally antibacterial and wears well too – so it will last! I wasn’t really sure what exactly organic meant in a non food item, but it is explained on the website nicely:
“Turns out, not all cotton is created equal. While traditional cotton undergoes waves of pesticides, fertilizers and post-harvest treatments, our cotton is clean. The all-natural farming and processing methods of our organic cotton fabrics are developed without a host of chemicals. Our bears deliver the classically soft and reliable cotton feel, plus a few good feels for sustainability. Win-win!”
I was really impressed with the company. For every organic teddy bear purchased through Bears for Humanity, they will donate a special equivalent bear to a child in need. They provide jobs to at-risk mothers, fathers and caregivers, and they are centered in California – made in the USA! Everything about the history of this teddy bear is amazing. I love that every purchase helps someone else in so many ways! They have also been recognized by several companies and magazines, and have earned many awards for their innovative product; such as the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval.
Here is an excerpt from their site:
A child’s toy is an incredibly intimate item. We think the things our little ones play with and sleep with should meet the same high standards as the food they eat and the clothes they wear. After two years and thousands of revisions, we have developed the safest, softest materials possible. We care that the toy your child turns to for comfort is up to the challenge. This isn’t the rough kid from down the street; this is a playmate that needs no supervision.
My kids are really into stuffed animals, I have a 2, 4, 6, and 9 year old, and they all got some snuggle time with him. He sat on laps, watched tv with them, and read lots of books, with many more adventures to come! A good teddy bear is an essential part of growing up! I had a few favorites I still remember from my childhood soo I am happy that my kids will get that experience of a little soft friend as well.
