Fair Indigo s Organic Cotton Joobles - Pip the Dog Receives A 2009 iParenting Media Best Product Award|
Middleton, WI (February 6, 2009) It would be enough if Fair Indigo s Organic Cotton Jooble Pip The Dog, was just the cuddliest plush around. It would be enough if Pip The Dog was so cute that children fell in love with him at first sight. But because Pip The Dog also happens to be 100% organic cotton and hand made fairly in Peru, Fair Indigo has been awarded the iParenting Media s 2009 Best Product Award for Toys.
Here s what some of the iParenting reviewers said were positive characteristics of Organic Cotton Joobles Pip the Dog:
Introducing the Jooble that's truly man's best friend, Pip the Dog! A huggable little puppy with loads of warmth and personality, Pip is made of soft organic yarns and eco-friendly dyes. We love the little dog's bold colors and comfortingly soft texture, making him the perfect friend for any young child. Award category: Toys & Games
" As a parent I enjoyed knowing that the stuffed animal was made by New Expo who provides work and hope to Peru's rural and urban poor. My son gravitated towards the stuffed animal because he was so very soft.
" This is a great product for little children to have. It is cute, safe and easy to transport. This would be a great baby gift, as it is organic, there is nothing that can harm a baby and it's soft and cuddly. I also really like the story that comes with this product. It's great to see that this company provides work and livelihood for a third world country.
" One of the children in our child care center simply fell in love with the stuffed dog the minute we received it so we tested it out on her and her family. She sleeps with it and takes it with her everywhere according to her mother. We can vouch for that since she brought it with her back each day! We all liked the fact that it helps out the poor. Great job!
