I love high-tech toys, so I understand why kids do as well. The bright lights, action and sounds are exciting. However, there is something special about toys that are hand-made, low tech and high touch. Zubels makes high quality, adorable hand-knit dolls. If you are looking for a special gift for a child that is eco-friendly as well as cuddly take a look at Zubels!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post that I wrote on behalf of Zubels. Zubels sent one 12″ Pom Pom Pam knit doll in hopes I would review it and post about their new online store: zubels.us.
My initial impression of Pom Pom Pam is that she is very colorful, cuddly and seems well made. There are no buttons or small parts that a child could brake off that seems hazardous. She is also very soft as you would expect from a knit doll. Pom Pom Pam is hand made from organic cotton. All in all, she is an adorable toy for a special child. And Zubel’s dolls are healthy and eco-friendly. The Pom Pom Pam I received has blond hair, but this doll is also available with brown or red hair. I know Pom Pom Pam will make a special little girl happy this Christmas!
Zubels also sell football player dolls that are made from the same organic cotton.

Zubels makes handmade, cotton knit items. Among their collection are cotton knit dolls, stuffed animals and rattles. The toys are brightly colored, soft and safe.
“Zubels are each hand knit with 100% super soft organic cotton yarns. Zubels uses eco-friendly low-impact dyes and has minimal packaging to reduce environmental waste. Each one is also hand stuffed to make them hugable and lovable. Their subtle textures, vibrant colors and hand embroidered details spark imaginary play. Every doll has a distinct personality just like every child!”

Zubels Commitment to Safety and to The Environment:
I asked the Zubels’ Head Zu Keeper about Zubek’s commitment to safety, and here is his reply:
We have a third party test our toys – we meet all US standards for testing – honestly it’s a knit toy with no plastic parts and no choking hazards …..
- The yarn is tested safe (no lead or harmful chemicals)
- The poly fill is tested safe (no lead or harmful chemicals)
- The labeling is tested so there is no traces of lead in the ink
- The toys are tested for flammability issues
- And finally they are tested for choking hazards or parts pulling off
