Plush Gifts with a Purpose from Axol and Friends


As many of you know, I’ve worked with Axol and Friends for many years, and this holiday season I wanted to remind you of all of the good that they do.

Axol and Friends creates sustainable toys, storybooks and accessories that bring attention to endangered plants and animals.  A portion of every sale is donated to nonprofit partners across the globe to empower kids to be activists and environmentalists.

My little friend Axol the Axolotl has evolved over the years, and is now also available in a weighted 4 lb. version, to help bring a calming effect to young children.

This new version of Axol is absolutely adorable and he’s big! I was so surprised when I opened my package and saw the size.  Kids will love cuddling with him.  I love they he’s weighted to provide that extra comfort.

More about Realistic Axol:

This plush is designed after the Axoloti, an endangered salamander native to Central Mexico. The plush measures 26 inches from head to tail and weighs 4 pounds.  It is designed to provide a sense of comfort and calmness in times of anxiety or nervousness. For each plush sold, 10 trees are planted .

Half of the profits of all sales at Axol and Friends are donated to youth programs all over the world.
