 100% Recycled, 100% Huggable! Keel Toys is a big plush toy maker; we're delighted to support its admirable move towards recycled materials.

The KeelEco range is made from 100% recycled materials:

  • Recycled polyester (rPET) for the outer and the stuffing - made by melting used plastic drinks bottles spinning into new polyester. A 30cm toy uses up to 16 x 500ml old drinks bottles!
  • Recycled glass beads for weights
  • Even the label is made from recycled materials!

Traditional glass eyes have been replaced with cotton embroidered eyes, which give them a unique and playful character.

The iconic red Keel hanging tag is now FSC cardboard attached with cotton string. 

What it contains: 25cm tall/long stuffed toy
