our peculiar pet : wild eyes mcgee

peculiar pet drawing
This is one of the other stuffed friends we received at our baby shower! Made locally by Michelle Lyon of Raleigh, NC, each Peculiar Pet, including ol' Wild Eyes here, is made using repurposed damaged vintage bedspreads. According to the company website, the attention to sustainability doesn't stop there; each pet is stuffed with a fiber fill that is 80% recycled water bottles!

So cool! The boys are sure to love!

I am loving these toy sketches! So so cute. I love recycled water bottle fiber fill. I think that's genius. More toy companies should do that.

I am enjoying your drawings of toy gifts! So cute! I love that they are made of recycled products. With all the considerate gifters in your life, I can't wait to see more drawings!
