Keel Toys 2024 Range Narrative
Step into the world of Keel Toys in 2024, the proud home of Keeleco, a remarkable range crafted from 100% recycled materials!
Keel Toys have always been at the forefront of innovation and design within the soft toy and gift market for many years, and our sustainability journey has been no different. Our goal was to create sustainable fabrics and products that were softer, and even more beautiful and huggable than before and in the Keeleco range we more than succeeded; Each and every Keeleco soft toy are manufactured and filled with 100% recycled polyester made from plastic waste. This process gives plastic a second life and uses less energy to produce than virgin polyester, as an example 10 water bottles (500ml) will produce enough fibre to make an 18cm toy. The iconic Keel logo and hangtag are now formed from FSC card and attached to the toy with cotton, even the shipping cartons are recycled and sealed with paper tape. All toys are manufactured in an ICTI ethically audited factory to the highest social and environmental standards.
Keel Toys are delighted to announce that in just the four years after launching Keeleco we have recycled the incredible figure of more than 250 million water bottles in the manufacture of the range (figures correct to the end of 2023 stock production).
With over 450 products and counting, Keel Toys remains committed to expanding this sustainable collection, throughout January & February we are offering our customers an exclusive opportunity to preview and pre-order over 100 brand new items from the 2024 range including completely new Halloween and Christmas ranges!
Get ready to embark on an eco-friendly adventure as you explore the Wild, Farm, Sealife, Dinosaurs, Teddy Bears, Puppies, Kittens, Nursery, Seasonal, and Keeleco Adoptable World collections.
The whimsical Keeleco Pink range continues the enchantment with sustainable, beautifully textured toys. Exclusive fabrics and embroideries bring Unicorns, Seahorses, Mermaids, Starfish, Octopuses and even a Clam Shell to life, complete with eye-catching gold crowns & pink tutus.
Keeleco Baby launched in 2021 to huge acclaim, has new friends of Squish Starfish and Percy Penguin recently added to the super cute natural range of Marcel Monkey & Ezra Elephant. To convey the Eco awareness all the ranges are clearly labelled with the sustainable message and offered with a variety of retail solutions and POS.
