Lil' G is beginning to notice pets in our neighborhood and I think he wants a new puppy.
Ehh, I'm not quite ready for a new pet and all the work that goes along with owning one. Geez, I'm still trying to figure out if Wednesday is the best day to wash my hair with a double rinse. Anyway, thanks to my good friend Lucky, I think the problem is solved, at least for the next while. This past week, she introduced me to this cool Canadian line called Cate and Levi. Meet our new pet pup who's made from re-purposed wool. We are still thinking of a name for him (yes, we welcome suggestions!).
All the dolls and puppets from Cate and Levi are one-of-a-kinds and are handmade in Canada using reclaimed material. This means you won't find any two products exactly alike, ensuring that each animal is truly as unique and special as the child who takes it home.
For those adventurous and creative types who have the time, there are puppet maker kits which you can build together with your child. What a great way to spend time together doing something creative!
Cate and Levi carries a range of product including organic and eco-friendly clothing, doll plaques, slippers, blankets, bags, home decor and much more. Ahem, I have my eye on this koala bear in case our new pup gets lonesome. Isn't he CUTE and cuddly? All their dolls are also machine washable - bonus!
I love that the owners are so meticulous with the quality of their products, all while making sure their process is as environmentally responsible as possible. They even donate part of their profits to children in need. It's nice to see more and more socially responsible children companies popping up who actually stop to think about our children's future.
Aww, isn't he the sweetest? That's our new PUP-pet taking a nap and he doesn't even shed on our couch or chew up our shoes. He's one-of-a-kind! I think this is a win-win for Lil' G and me. Thank you to my friend Lucky!
PS. Guess who else has a bunch of Cate and Levi puppets and dolls at home? Check out Sir Elton John on the Marilyn show.
