Ana & Mariano Stuffed Bear Toys
Hand knit stuffed bear – great fair trade gift for kids
This natural hand knitted stuffed bear, created by an indigenous woman artisan in the high Andes of Peru, is a natural eco-gift for that special child in your life. No ordinary stuffed animals, these Peruvian bears have their own distinct personalities. Ana Bear is grey with a cute white and blue dress and a bow on her head! She pairs perfectly with Mariano Bear, with his adorable hand-knitted hat and scarf. These eco-friendly soft toys, purchased alone or as a pair, make the perfect gift for earth-conscious parents.
