Once upon a time, a young woman from the UK fell in love with a young man from Bangladesh. Eventually they moved to Bangladesh and had a baby. As the new mother cuddled her tiny boy, she couldn’t help but notice all of the young women streaming into the garment factories every morning. She was deeply saddened when she discovered that many of these woman had babies back home in their villages, left for months at a time with grandparents while the mom worked in the city. Lack of rural employment for women was separating families and putting the mothers in harmful situations and the babies without their mothers. So this new mom did what she could. She gathered a few women around her and taught them how to knit and crochet little dollies that could be sold in the Western markets. Samantha Morshed dreamed that this would grow and become an alternative source of income for women throughout Bangladesh. 15 years later, her dream is becoming a reality. More than 13,000 women are now employed making Pebble toys in their home village. They walk to work, taking their babies with them. There they sit together, yarn spilling onto their laps as they knit community and love together in each heirloom Pebble toy. Pebble was born out of a love for babies and their mothers.

Plush, soft, cuddly, bigger than it looks in the picture. A huge hit with 6 year old granddaughter-I have never, ever seen a child so overcome with joy and happiness as she was - she had to show it to everyone in the house (in different rooms). She took it to bed with her - still hugging it! She really liked the other things I got her but she LOVED this Giraffe. It was more expensive than the others I saw but worth it! It was the best money I ever spent to see a child so very, very happy!
It's not very heavy, but it's constructed amazingly well. It's so soft she immediately gave it a big hug. If you are looking for something a little different, I would highly recommend taking a look at this giraffe.
Extremely well made. These are beyond toys although my daughter will have many hours of enjoyment playing with hers. This is so well made I see it being passed down through generations. Very soft. Very huggable. I won’t buy another brand of stuffed animal again. I have now gifted 2 of these and was very pleased with both.
Absolutely beautiful!! Bigger than I thought it would be. Comes in a cute box. Very well made. I will be ordering others from them.
Very cute. Worh buying.
Well made. Absolutely adorable!
