The Greenzys are a brand new line of plush animals with a story to tell (book!) Each stuffed animal is green, made from soy fibers, non-toxic dyes and bears the green heart shaped planet logo on it’s belly. My son *loves* that
Before I go further, please check out this adorable video.
How cute are they! And how catchy is that tune?! I for one think that these characters would make an adorable show. I don’t let me kids watch much TV, but when I do, I would appreciate a show like this. To be clear, I have not heard anything about it being a show, I just think it would be great.
On to the book! It’s a beautiful story about how the way the planet has been abused and the destruction that it has caused. Okay, so not in so many words, and not quite that dark, but that’s the point. It is a bout a beautiful old tree that is clinging to the last of her seed in hopes of carrying on. She has been choked out by pollution and reaches out for a helping hand.
In come the Greenzys. They don’t know each other, but when they are united, they soon realize that they can do something to help and they do! Meet them! There (left to right – starting on the top) Holly, Violet, Willow, Peat, Yew Yew, Poppy, Mango & Rooty. We have Peat and love him. Actually, my son has Peat. He has taken to Peat and even takes him to bed with him, which is HUGE. My son’s best friend Motta Motta, has been the only one to keep that place, so to share that with Peat is a big deal
As part of the book and plush animals, each one comes with a code to hop on their site and plant a tree in parternship with the Arbor Day Foundation! You can even print out a certificate, if you do, please use the back of an old piece of paper or recycled paper. What a great way for kids to see how they can make a difference too.
My children love their Greenzys and they would like to share one with you. You have the chance to meet and love Willow. Your children will love how snuggly she is (the soy fibers are FAR different than the typical synthetics!)
Willow is an elephant from India and a born leader. She’s always first in line when the Greenzys head off on a mission and cheers them on by blowing her trunk like a trumpet! It’s a tough job, though, leading seven young, inexperienced animals — especially when you’re a rookie yourself! But, it’s worth the effort to Willow. She treasures her Earth home and wants to take care of it. Her favorite green activity is collecting rain to water her plants and using her trunk as a waterspout!
