Man, ninjas. You can trust those sneaky bastards as far as you can throw 'em. And eco-friendly ninjas? Well they're just a whole other bag of shurikens altogether.

Proving that two minds are wackier than one, an unlikely partnership between Noon Solar and Shawnimals has yielded the best Earth Day tie-in ever: a Forest Spirit Wee Ninja plush. The little guy even has a back story; it was once a regular ninja that melded with the forest, transforming into an elemental guardian that presumably rids the world of environmental evil-doers with exquisitely choreographed flying kicks before digging into a bento lunch of twigs, berries, and tofu.

The first Shawnimals plush to go 100 percent organic, the 9-inch-tall, handmade mini-master of stealth is made from a blend of organic cotton and hemp fleece, then stuffed with kapok-tree fiber. A pair of wooden eyes peer out from an eye mask crafted from 100 percent naturally dyed wool felt, while a hemp cord secures the leafy accoutrements that dangle off his side.

The Forest Spirit Ninja plush ($40, plus shipping) will launch itself into the annals of awesomeness come April 22. But don't dawdle—only 100 have been made, so snag one before it vanishes into the shadows forever.
