What It Is
The Lorax Eco-Plush is a nine-inch stuffed animal from Greenpoint Brands' (formerly Hosung) MyNatural brand. This stuffed animal is based on the title character from the 1971 Dr. Seuss book and the new 3-D, CG-animated movie featuring the voices of Danny DeVito, Zac Efron, and Taylor Swift. The Lorax tells the tale of a forest guardian, the Lorax, and a 12-year-old boy named Ted who has never seen a real tree because they have all been cut down, but he wants to find one to bring back to Audrey, the girl of his dreams.
This soft, eco-friendly version of the Lorax is certified non-toxic, made from natural cotton fabric, filled with recycled fiber, and made with a low eco impact dye process.
Why It’s Fun
For young fans of the character, The Lorax Eco-Plush is a well-crafted representation of the character. For parents who are looking for eco-friendly toys, they will appreciate the "green" manufacturing practices of this toy. The Lorax Eco-Plush also makes a great collectible item for anyone who loves the original book.
Who It’s For
The Lorax Eco-Plush is recommended for all ages. However, we find that stuffed animals with little stringy pieces hanging off of them, such as with this one, are not appropriate for kids under the age of 3.
What To Be Aware Of
Because of its eco-friendly manufacturing process, The Lorax Eco-Plush is not as orange as the character you see in the film.
The Lorax Eco-Plush is available at Target.
The Lorax hits theaters on March 2.
