cuddle+kind is not just an adorable doll, it is also ethically produced and hand-knit. For every doll sold, the company gives 10 meals to children in need around the world. So far, they have been able to donate over 4,245,707 meals. Every one of the heirloom-quality dolls is handmade by artisans in Peru using sustainable, fair trade practices. They have 24 beautiful dolls in the collection, each with its own birthday and personality along with a favorite quote.
“It is not only huggable and soft, it can also teach children about providing meals to other children in need. I love the fact that it is handmade and was made by a family for a family. I was able to have an open dialogue with my oldest daughter about why the doll gives back to other kids who are not as fortunate as she is.”
“Love the message behind it. I feel like I am giving a gift as well as offering a lesson.”
“My 5-year-old liked to make it talk to her other dolls. She had the most imagination with it. My 3-year-old liked to cuddle it when she felt sad, or was afraid of the dark.”
