Piperoid

Piperoid draws kids away from computers and invites them to play with their hands, something they often forget to do when surrounded by so much technology. Each kit comes with the necessary parts to assemble the paper craft robots. The recycled paper pipes come with pre-drilled holes and marks that indicate where to cut, fold and connect the pipes. There is even a page online where you can learn how to repair your Piperoid friend if joints become loose from use. Best yet, no tape, glue, batteries or electricity are required!

WoolBuddy

Originally started as a desire to create a unique collection of toys for his daughter, Jackie Huang has now created over 300 characters that make up the WoolBuddy collection. Huang needle felts each creature, a process that requires no water — unlike the traditional wool felting process. As the product is 100% handmade in the USA, no electrical energy is required — making it a truly energy-free alternative to traditional stuffed animals!
