If you are a parent, one thing you cannot do away with is toys for your little one. With technology hooking kids to mobile screens, toys that are innovative and educational has become imperative. As public awareness of the environmental issues caused by plastic has continued to grow, I’ve begun to get even more uncomfortable with the huge amount of plastic invading our home, most noticeably in the form of my children’s’ toys. And what if we tell you that there is an eco-friendly alternative to plastic toys that you grew up with? Yes, you heard it right. At Plumtales by Kuhu Enterprises, we manufacture amigurumi toys that are eco-friendly and free from toxic wastes.
(Amigurumi is a technique used to make small stuffed toys out of crocheting or knitting and the word ‘Amigurumi’ is a Japanese term, based on a traditional old Japanese art.)
