Cate & Levi Hand Puppets Review

By Fredrica Syren:

As an eco-friendly family, we take steps to reduce our carbon footprint by refusing plastic, especially when it comes to our children’s toys. It’s a huge step in the right direction, so if you want to make sure your children’s toys are as sustainable as possible, choose toys that are handcrafted and made with post-consumer recycled materials.

Cate and Levi is a family company in Toronto, Canada, that sells hand puppets, stuffed animals, clothing, kids’ decor and DIY kits. Their collections are made from premium reclaimed or recycled materials. What I like about this company is how the entire process, from production to shipping, focuses on delivering safe, eco-friendly products while reducing their carbon footprint. All material used in Cate & Levi’s toys are sourced as close to home as possible.

I love how no toy is the same — they are all a little unique. Each one is made from reclaimed wool that comes from reclaimed sweaters. Before the products are cut and sewn, the sweaters are industrially cleaned with an eco-friendly detergent and super-hot water — both for cleanliness and so that the material felts. The choice of reclaimed wool reduces demand for new materials that require both water and oil for production.

My 4- and 6-year-old boys each have hand puppets, and they absolutely love them. The puppets invite so much imaginary play. As a mom, I feel comfortable that these toys will bring only happiness to my kids, and that they are safe because Cate & Levi’s products are safety tested for ALL AGES, newborn and up.
