A little bit about Joobles

Joobles are precious playmates from Peru where artisans have hand crafted a menagerie of animals under fair trade conditions, providing work and hope to hundreds of rural and urban Peruvians. That’s why their tagline is Responsible, Sustainable, Adorable™.

Each incredibly soft animal is made with eco-friendly dyes and organic cotton grown in Peru. Calley the Cat stands 11” tall (as all the friends do) with adorable whiskers and a huggable green and yellow body. For parents hunting for eco-friendly toys, all of the Joobles are made with cotton grown without the use of pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fertilizers, or other chemicals. Eliminating these chemicals is not only better for baby, but also for workers and for the environment.

The Joobles family consists of nine adorable animals:

  • Bella the Bunny
  • Buzzy Bug
  • Calley the Cat
  • Fair Bear
  • Icy the Penguin
  • Jiffy the Giraffe
  • Mel the Monkey
  • Mooey Cow
  • Pip the Dog

Retailing for just $29 each, Joobles can be found online at www.fairindigo.com or at specialty e-tailers like Oompa.com

  1. the fairbear is so cute…fair trade show you value the employee and give them enough to leave on, not pennies per hour- I like sites like this mrs.mommyyatgmail.com

  2. I like Jiffy the Giraffe — the colors are so bright! Don’t get me started on fair trade. It’s something I feel very strongly about. The idea that people are working for barely liveable wages to give me clothing that they can’t afford, well, it really angers me.

  3. Fair trade means other countries buy our products too so that exports = imports.

    Mel the Monkey is sooo cute. My fave!

  5. Stephanie says:

    We must pay people a fair wage and regulate work environments to protect the young and old. Love pip the dog!

  6. i think thay all are so cute and well if it was up to me i have one of each thay are all just 2 cute and well any one of them will do my little one just fine thanks oh i got your button for this as well

  7. These are cute. I agree with fair trade, but why buy from other countries? If you buy from this country, so many people here wouldn’t be out of work. Support Americans first.

  8. I like Mel the Monkey. I agree that people should be paid fairly for their work.

  9. Christina says:

    I tweeted (stinawins)!

  10. Christina says:

    Fair Trades is important because minimum wage has not kept up with inflation and has become a joke.

    My favorite is Calley the Cat!

  11. Dumaurier says:

    These look like the best kinda toys to give a baby, something thats soft and well made. I love Pip the Dog

  12. Finleypotamus says:

    I am so glad to find more fair trade items lately. I think it’s wonderful and everyone should be paid fairly for their hard work. I love Pip the Dog.

    well you know how I feel about fair trade. It is so important that people are paid a fair wage for their work and that they work in good conditions!

    I love the Joobles. Especially Jiffy the giraffe :)

  14. My son would love Mel the monkey.
    Fair trade, what a wonderful idea~ A great way to support the people working so hard.

  15. windycindy says:

    The stories that I have read about
    “sweat shops” are horrible. Fair trade is just the opposite. Paying people fair wages for their work!
    I am glad to see this trend growing.
    I really like “Jiffy the Giraffe!”
    Please enter me in your delightful drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

    I think that Fair Trade is an excellent idea. Paying more for something like this is totally acceptable and Icy the Penguin is the Jooble that has captured my heart.

  19. I digg you!

  20. Those are too cute, especially the dog!

    Fair trade is awesome. It not only helps people in other countries but in the big picture if all companies supported fair trade, we’d have so many more good jobs in our own country as well. So many companies try to get the cheapest work and our people just can’t afford to make the cheap wages that less conscious companies pay.

    I never really understood what fair trade really meant and loved their “quite simply” definition.
    I will make sure to do more to support it.
    That being said, I love the Mooey the Cow.

  24. Erin Tales says:

    It makes me feel good that my Starbucks is fair trade.

    My favorite Jooble is Mel. My nephew would love him.

    You can find me at the Mom Buzz. LMAO. Seriously, you can e-mail me at speak2erin (at) gmail (dot) com.

  25. I have two children adopted from Guatemala and I love fair trade because it really helps the people of these Countries. I have seen first hand. I would love the penguin.

  26. I think the whole idea of fair-trade is a great one! I like the idea of a worker owned co-op. Well, my son said he likes buzzy bug, but I liked some of the others that I could go back and buy the coordinating sweater and hat for :)

  27. As much as I love Mel the Monkey I have to go with Jiffy the Giraffe so you can get the coordinating hat and sweater. That is toooo cute.

    I stumbled

  30. Tara @ Feels like home says:

    I am willing to pay more for fair trade items. It really makes me sad to think that people just like me are working for pennies in other countries.

    I love all of the animals. Really. If I had to pick just one, it would be the penguin.

    Mel the Monkey for sure!!! How cute!!! I love these. I know my son would too! :) I think supporting fair trade is the way to go. It’s in the name- it’s only fair to pay people what there worth! Workers have incentive to work and companies value their employees this way. I will tweet about this for sure. Mahalo!
