Kids love collectable toys that they can un-box and Meegos may be the cutest range available that happen to be Fair trade guaranteed too. Read on to find out all about this new range of crochet pet friends:
A brand-new range of Fair Trade handmade collectables has arrived – Meegos, the super-cute, high-quality, crochet craftwork pets from Click Creations. Series One is sure to be popular with pet-lovers as it features a dozen different breeds of Dogs & Pups!
Every Meegos and Mini Meegos is handmade in Bangladesh through a non-profit Fairtrade organisation and is making a real difference in over 200 villages by bringing sustainable, regular and flexible employment for women. Each five inch Meegos dog takes five hours to make with the Mini Meegos pups taking over an hour to crochet. Meegos Series One has already created jobs for more than 4,000 women.
Series One – Dogs & Pups – features six breeds of five-inch Meegos as well as 12 different Mini Meegos puppies. These puppies are blind boxed, so it’ll be a real surprise each time one is opened. There are also three Limited Edition families of pups to collect, each with a five-inch version and two Mini Meegos puppies.
Meegos are Inspired by Amigurumi – the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. The word is a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.
The five inched Meegos are priced at £12.99 each.
This is Duke and his favourite food is chocolate waffles.
This is Wendy.
Her favourite food is Bone Burger! You can find out more about each Meegos pet over at www.mymeegos.com and begin to build a family tree.
The blind boxed Mini Meegos are priced at £6.99 each and make a lovely surprise. Unlike other blind box toys the packaging is minimal-just a cardboard box that can be used to store your Meegos pup or reused or recycled so there is no waste packaging (win!).
Izzy loved unboxing these and finding out which Mini Meegos she had to add to her collection!
This is Doug from the Puppy Park.
This is Aurora from Fur Fields Forest.
Wendy and Duke are special limited editions.
We’re lucky that even though our collection of Meegos are not family members they all get on very well! We’re hoping to buy more and complete our first family soon. Meegos are currently available at Sainsbury’s and Debenhams.
Izzy and Caitlyn both love playing doggy games so play with their Meegos pets together happily for ages.
I love these cute crochet friends, minimal packaging and the fact that they are making a difference for women and therefore families in Bangladesh. They are made from 100% cotton with a 100% polyester fill and can be machine washed on delicate setting so easy to keep clean too!
Meegos are available from 12th April at selected Sainsbury’s and Debenhams stores. We were sent these Meegos for purposes of review.
Join us for a #MeegosParty on Twitter Thursday 12th April 4pm-5pm to celebrate their launch!
