Eco friendly stuffed animals

Most stuffed animals have a suspicious chemical smell to them, and some are even quite scratchy. These guys from Aurora are made of soy fiber and stuffed not with polyester, but kapok, this fluffy stuff that's soft and hypoallergenic (it's also found in lifejackets--it floats) and it a sustainable rainforest crop, so perhaps it might give some incentive to not just chop/burn the whole place down.

Plus, they are hand made in Indonesia. You can find them at Whole Foods and various places like that. Me likey!

From the company:

Aurora ( announced today that its line of soybean-based plush called Aurora Naturally™ won a 2008 Amazing Toy Award. The world's first "green" plush line, more commonly referred to as Eco-Plush, surpassed all award requirements as evaluated by and its diverse panel of testers.

This is really a great idea. But I wonder if the kapok is a hybrid of some kind or if they've treated it somehow to make it hypoallergenic, because I have a kapok allergy myself. Way back when I was first tested (like in the very early 60s,) my allergist specifically included it in testing, apparently because allergies to it were pretty common.

Wow, I didn't know that about kapok. I'll pass that info along to the company. All i know is that I am very sensitive to stuff and the li'l stuffed animal's been great for me.
