Details

A bit mischievous and known to the other Joobles as a practical joker, Racky the Raccoon gets serious when he travels. He loves soaking up other cultures and finding hidden places off the beaten path. This irresistible organic cotton stuffed animal is destined to be a lovable, lasting companion. So wonderfully squishy and soft, it's hard to let go! And full of wholesome goodness from farm to toy box.

  • 100% organic Tanguis cotton yarns
  • New Polyester filling per CPSC best anti-microbial practices
  • Oeko-tex certified earth- and baby-safe dyes
  • Approximately 11 inches tall
  • Machine wash gentle
  • Fairly hand knit in small Peruvian cooperatives
Fair Indigo Premium Materials
While we select Peruvian Pima cotton for most of our garments, the ideal cotton for sweaters (and knit stuffed animals) is Pima’s close cousin - Tanguis. Because sweaters employ a looser and different type of knit than fabric garments, the slightly thicker fibers of Tanguis cotton are ideal for fashioning incredibly soft but strong and long-lasting stuffed animals.

How does it do good?
Our organic cotton is grown without GMO's on a small family-owned farm in the climactically perfect Ica region of Peru. The dyes are Oeko-tex certified - gentle on the earth, farmers, knitters, and baby. The organic plush dolls are meticulously knit in small, worker-owned cooperatives throughout Peru, providing steady income and a better life for some of Peru's poorest citizens.

Love him!
I was looking for a lovey for my 1 year old to help with nap and bed time, but I wanted something organic if he was going to be sleeping with it. This guy was so cute and reasonably priced so I bought him even though I was worried that the knit wouldn't wear well. I shouldn't have been concerned, I have never seen a stuffed animal that was so durable! The raccoon is very soft and huggable and my son took to him right away. He took him to preschool every day, slept with him every night, chewed him, used him to wack his big brother, etc. Almost 2 years later he still looks great. I machine wash him in a delicate bag and dry him with tennis balls and he comes out great, vital for a lovey!
