As you know, my child LOVES dolls and stuffed animals. If it is soft and squishy, she’s all about it. If she REALLY loves it, she will put the animal or doll’s nose, arm, foot or ears in her mouth. A LOT. Strange? Yes. But that’s how she rolls. It is her greatest gesture of love to chew on her toys.
This is just one of the reasons why I am very drawn to chemical-free toys. Finding BPA-free plastic is becoming much easier, but I still struggle to find organic plush toys. But no longer! Today I’m featuring a company called miYim and they carry a FANTASTIC line of organic dolls and plush toys.
We received the ballerina doll a few weeks ago, and Darah was with me when I opened the package. I let her peek inside to see what was in the box, and when she saw what it was, she said, “Oh! It’s a dolly!” She handed me her bunny to hold so that she could use both hands to get her out of the package. Then she asked for help getting her out of the box.
One thing I immediately noticed was that there was NO plastic in the packaging. Not even to hold the doll in the box! Very impressive! The doll was tied into the box using ribbon. Because the doll box didn’t have a plastic face and because we didn’t have to tear into the box to get the doll out, it was left in perfect condition for play. The box was really beautiful, and fit the doll perfectly, so it is now being used as a doll bed by Darah (it was her idea, actually!).
We have named the doll Bonnie. Bonnie is now best friends with her other dolls and gets played with every single day. And yes, she also gets chewed on throughout the day. And I don’t break out into a sweat when I see her do it! 🙂 I know that Bonnie made with all natural cotton fabric, colored only with plants and minerals and has been certified as non-toxic and 100% chemical free. Chew away, my love!
