Kids need toys, one or two anyway. Many studies show that when kids play, they are actually learning, we are not talking about 'educational toys', but soft cuddly toys too. Using dolls and monsters and other plush toys help children to use their imagination, role play various scenarios from real life and learn about their environment and their role in it. The plush monsters made by Cotton Monster, hold plenty of imaginative possibilities. These cotton monsters are all handmade from recycled materials, making them not only pretty cool and unusual but eco friendly too. Check out some previous TreeHugger stories on eco and unusual toys such as here, here and here.
