Combining Cute with a Cause – the Newest Pocketkins Eco-Friendly Plush Toys are Set to Sell BIG
Wild Republic was created to connect our founder’s love for children and wildlife. Our mission is to deliver toys and stuffed animals that foster curiosity about wildlife and educate children about the wonders of nature
Kids love cute and their parents love a cause. So you can’t go wrong with a selection from our ever-popular Pocketkins eco-friendly plush toys range.
This much-loved plush toys Australia collection is set to grow with the addition of three new animals, with a fourth coming later this year. Its association with Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization, WIRES is an eco-friendly added bonus.
Wild Republic and WIRES
Since 2020, Wild Republic has been donating a percentage from Pocketkins sales to WIRES. As Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization, WIRES does awesome work rescuing and caring for sick, injured and orphaned native animals. It operates a dedicated Wildlife Rescue Office, assisting wildlife and the community 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In fact, WIRES receives over 90,000 rescue requests each year – that’s up to 1,000 a day during spring and summer. That’s a lot of Australian animals that need help.
When WIRES was established in the mid-1980s, there wasn’t any organization (government or otherwise) whose role was specifically native animal rescue and care. WIRES gave our animals the love and help they needed. We’re immensely proud to be a supporter of this fantastic organization!
Combining Cute with a Cause – the Newest Pocketkins Additions are Set to Sell Big
The Power of a Cause
Research shows that consumers love a cause. More than eight in 10 global consumers consider corporate social responsibility (CSR) when deciding what to buy or where to shop (87%), and which products and services to recommend to others (85%). And as long as they’re essentially equal in quality and price, a full 91% are likely to switch brands to one that supports a good cause.
We love supporting WIRES and we love that our Pocketkins buyers love it too.
The Pocketkins Range
There is something about plush animal toys (and eco-friendly plush toys are even better!) that pulls on the heartstrings of kids and big kids alike. And when they’re tiny enough to fit in your pocket, you know that lure is irresistible!
Wild Republic’s larger Ecokins, Rainbowkins, Foilkins and Cuddlekins ranges have all been incredibly popular, so the mini Pocketkins versions measuring just 12cm ensure all young animal lovers are catered for. Not only do they offer a unique point of difference with their size, but they’re also great value for pocket money.
These pocket-sized versions also uphold Wild Republic’s eco-friendly promises of being made from 100% recycled fabric and plastic fiber fill, while also boasting biodegradable packing bags and recycled paper hang tags with cotton string.
The Pocketkins collection covers a huge range of everyone’s favorite’s, from snow leopards, pandas and chameleons, to meerkats, flamingos and giraffes, to sloths, unicorns and dinosaurs. They are available to purchase individually or in an assorted 20-piece display box.
