Eco-friendly Monsterkins are each made from three to 26 plastic water bottles and teach an environmental lesson to kids.

Not all monsters are bad, at last those by design that carry an environmental message aimed at kids.

Wild Republic, an international toy company committed to the development of high quality plush and toys that nurture children and encourage a love of nature, introduces Monsterkins, “a ground-breaking, new eco-friendly plush line just in time for Earth Day.”

“Created for the Earth by the Earth”, Monsterkins are sustainably made and arrive with a en eco-friendly backstory: the monsters eat discarded plastic water bottles.

As part of the company's greater social initiative, Promise to the Planet, a portion of the proceeds from the new line will support animal rescue.

"It was important for us to develop a fun and innovative plush line like Monsterkins made from 100% recycled water bottles, and that also helps to educate our children about the importance of improving our planet," says Vishnu Chandran, president of Wild Republic. "The fun story behind the line engages children to learn more about our planet, different ecosystems, and the importance of conserving and respecting our planet.

As the story goes, Monsterkins are Earth's creation to help eat the plastic water bottles from land and sea. It may take almost five hundred years for plastic bottles to decompose, but Monsterkins can digest them in only two hours. They thrive on your plastic trash. Whether it's in the rainforest, on a beach, or trash thrown on the ground, you can rely on a Monsterkins to eat it up and clean it up. There's a Monsterkins for every environment.

"Monsterkins are friendly 'monsters' that are the perfect nighttime buddy to help ease anxieties especially during this very stressful time,” offers Chandran. “The line is soft, colorful, and can easily turn worries into cuddly fun.”

The line includes a Monsterkins Dusk, Grom, MK, Muck, Trash Foot, Trashzilla, Vinnie and Vish. Depending on the character, it takes approximately three to 26 plastic water bottles to make each Monsterkins. Each is sold separately and is available in two different sizes, 18 inch for $30, and 8 inch for $11.99. Monsterkins is available for purchase at WildRepublic.com.
