Jumpin’ for Joobles

Jumpin’ for Joobles

Kids love stuffed animals. I can honestly say I don’t quite understand the draw of a gazillion stuffed animals, but both of my girls like them and covet them whenever we go shopping. So, when I do on occasion feed the addiction to stuffed animals my girls have, I like to find animals that are different and out of the ordinary; stuffed animals that aren’t made from a cookie cutter mold. So, while browsing through products made using fair trade practices (i.e. paying workers a fair wage not just a minimum) I ran across Joobles, stuffed animals made by Fair Indigo.

Joobles are brightly colored and fun looking stuffed animals made out of organic cotton and eco-friendly dyes. So, not only do they support fair trade they are also environmentally and safety conscious. Cool. I had the opportunity to review Mooey the Cow…and he isn’t your average cow! Instead of the rather boring and staid black and white colors, Mooey is yellow with fuchsia splotches, and has aqua arms, legs, tail and horns. He (yes I am calling Mooey a boy, with three girls in the house my husband needs some reinforcements) is made out of a knitted material instead of the more usual fur type material, and is super huggable and soft. When I introduced him to Ellie she immediately grabbed him and started hugging him; always a sign that she likes something. She then tried to teach Eve how to rock him and sing “rock-a-bye” but abandoned that effort when Eve started to chew on him.

I think that this is one of my favorite stuffed animals that the girls have; he is super soft, the colors are great and he is just different than all the others I have seen. Fair Indigo also makes different kind of animals, my other favorites are Jiffy the giraffe, Icy the penguin, and Pip the dog. And for those of you who are looking for a great gift how about giving the cool kid in your life a Joobles with sweater that matches? It might sounds a little corny, but it actually looks really cute.

Now your child can be the proud owner of a Mooey the Cow. To Enter: Go to Fair Indigo and look around, then come back here and tell me what you learned about fair trade…not hard at all! Ends March 2nd @ 8.00 PM EST

I believe it has something to do with better wages

Getting paid a living wage instead of a minimum wage.
