When Bears For Humanity asked for sustainable living bloggers to review their stuffed animals, I jumped at the opportunity to tell you about these delightful toys.

If you don’t know, Bears For Humanity aren’t just toy makers – they actively work with programs to provide employment to families in need.

They also donate toys to disadvantaged children, giving them comfort and stuffed animals to play with.

In this review, we’ll look at 3 stuffed animals I received to review and you’ll learn why Bears For Humanity is a company with a conscience that you can feel good supporting.

[This is a post sponsored by Bears For Humanity. I received compensation and 3 toys for this review, but the opinions are all my own.]

Product Description:

The three stuffed toys I received were a cat, a turtle, and a tiger. Each stuffed animal is about 8 inches tall, and made of plush 100% certified organic cotton. They’re filled with recycled polyester fill, and are very soft.

Each toy is adorable and ready for your child to love immediately.

Bears For Humanity stuffed animals also come with two tags: One describing the “Buy One, Give One” pledge, which states that for every purchase you make, Bears For Humanity will donate a bear to a child in need.

Since Bears For Humanity strives to support those in need by providing employment for working mothers through California’s Welfare to Work program, the other tag informed me that I can send a custom message along with a donation to support these women and children. 

The tag also states that Bears for Humanity partners with reputable local and national charities to ensure any donated bears reaches children in need.

Both tags are printed on 100% recycled paper using plant-based biomass inks. 

As of print, each toy I received to review is $25 on BearsForHumanity.com.

From now until the end of August 2016, if you purchase a stuffed animal from Bears For Humanity, you can get free shipping using the code FREESHIPPING4MOM.

The Good:

The tiger, turtle, and cat toys I received are adorable and my children immediately fell in love with them, and have spent several afternoons since playing with the stuffed animals.

The toys are easy for a child to hold, and since they’re soft, they’re easy to hug. My daughter especially loves soft toys and blankets, and the tiger became her particular favorite.

The turtle toy has an adorable brown “shell” made of soft shag cotton. 

Since Bears For Humanity uses only 100% certified organic cotton, I felt good knowing my children were playing with toys created from sustainable resources, and were not exposed to dyes or inks that could harm them. 

Anyone purchasing a Bear For Humanity will feel good knowing their purchase goes directly towards enriching the lives of women and children in need, and that children who might not have many toys will be given a stuffed animal to love.

The Bad:

There’s nothing bad about these toys. I love them.

The Bottom Line:

Five stars.
