Elly Lu Organics Launches Cutest Kickstarter
We were recently introduced to the Elly Lu Organics stuffed toy line. I received free samples in order to facilitate this blog post and review, but all opinions are my own. What kid doesn't love to snuggle up with a cute and cuddly stuffed animal? The comfort they get from that familiar friend can help them through a lot of "tough" childhood times. When those same stuffed toys are organic and made to serve a purpose, both parents and kids can rejoice. Let me introduce you to Elly Lu Organics. A family run company that cares about their customers and the world around them. Not only do they make stuffed animals that are soft and made from sustainable materials, they also donate to worthy causes! They currently offer 10 different animals/mermaids and one cute storybook. My little one couldn't stop squeezing her new "magical" unicorns as she calls them.
