Aminals: Organic Doll of Your Choice Giveaway

This giveaway is now over with 246 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Mary A!

About Aminals ~

Kids' drawings are brilliant, aren't they? Exaggerated proportions, squiggly lines, bright colors; they are creative expression at its most honest – and most hilarious!

Our children live and play in imaginary worlds and secret spaces – they invite their dolls to sit for tea parties, eat mud pies, or carry them upside down to bed with them to keep scary night monsters at bay. They do this in their artwork, too!

Inspired by, and in celebration of these imaginary worlds, vivid artwork – and ALL the amazing characters living in them – we bring to life a new line of huggable-soft dolls called Aminals.

When you meet the Aminals, you'll see that each character has its own special story, yet each is ready for new adventures with our kids. The Aminals family will soon be your kids' favorite companions, and most secret confidants!

Retailers interested in carrying Aminals should contact us through email.


Why Organic?

It's Safer For Our Kids

Not only is organic farming healthier and safer for our farmers, our fieldworkers, and our communities, organic cotton is free from synthetic poisons that are absorbed into our bloodstream through skin contact. Products manufactured from certified organic ingredients are the safest for your kids!

Only low impact and natural vegetable dyes can be used in certified organic cotton production, unlike the toxic, synthetic dyes used in conventional cotton manufacturing. Each time we make the choice to use certified organic ingredients, your children are safer and the world is a cleaner, greener place.


Meet all of the Aminals!

We are pleased to introduce to you the first eleven characters from our growing line of organic dolls for children.

Safe, soft, squeezable, silly and sweet, Aminals are inspired by the creative lives of children and created for the future world they'll inherit!
