We love collectables in our house, especially cute soft collectables. To the point that soft toys have more space in Liv’s bed than she does! Fortunately the new Meegos collection are small enough to still allow Liv leg room!
Meegos are new to the block, cute and cuddly crochet soft toys that children are going to love. What makes this range totally unique is the fact that each Meego and Mini Meego is crocheted by hand in Bangladesh through a workers co-operative and is making a real difference in over 200 villages by bringing sustainable, regular and flexible employment.
Each five inch Meegos dog takes five hours to make with the Mini Meegos pups taking over an hour to crochet, which is amazing! I attempted crochet last year, currently my blanket is half finished and I do not even have one straight line! The crochet dogs are made to a really high quality and the detailing is superb… I am in awe! Another interesting fact is that the Meegos Series One has already created jobs for more than 4,000 women… bring on Series Two!
Children and big kids alike are going to love the Series One collection! All the larger pups have name collars to distinguish characters. We have Meadow and Baxter in the collection who are super cute. The name collars tell you a little more information about each dog and their pup siblings – you can fill in the family tree of your Meegos over at mymeegos.com. Uncover more about your Meegos, including personalities and characteristics giving you the opportunity to create your own adventures with your new crochet friends!
The Mini Meegos – also known as the pups – are available in colourful boxes, leaving it a total surprise as to which pup you are adding to your collection. These are super cute and a wonderful gift idea!
Currently available in the Series One Meegos collection are 6 dogs (measuring 5 inches tall – RRP £12.99) and 12 pups (measuring 2 inches tall – RRP £6.99) to collect – all available to purchase from either Debenhams or Sainsburys.
