Purrfect Play - Review and Giveaway

Hello everyone, this is Lexy checking in with another fab review.  Today I’m reviewing some great toys from Purrfect Play.  

When Mother was at BlogPaws she had the pleasure of meeting Purrfect Play’s head honcho, Pam Wheelock, who gave her a cute little bag of toys for us.

When Mother got home and looked at Purrfect Play’s website and read what their values are, we knew we had to feature them on our blog.


The most important part first – the toys! We got a mouse, tea bag, and some great little dust bunnies.

Well, their catnip gets eight paws up and a double twist from me! Oh wait, I only have four paws – I must be seeing double!

Purrfect Play is proud to be an American manufacturer.  All of their products are made right here in the USA, and 90% of their fibers are also grown/milled/processed in the USA, with only their hemp fibers being grown in another country. All of their toys are dye and toxin free, made from organic natural fibers: (cotton, wool, hemp), and are free of synthetic or reprocessed plastics.  And best of all, they use fresh, certified, organic catnip! 

The folks at Purrfect Play believe in giving back to pet rescue and donate 5% of their annual sales to rescues.  So far in 2015 they have helped Lakeshore PAWS, Meow House Cat Rescue, Humane Society of the Dunes, and Whiskers Animal Welfare.  You can see a complete list (including all rescues they have helped since 2006!) here.  

If you look at their website, you will see they proudly display the Green America Seal of approval. (Green America is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to harnessing the economic power of consumers, investors and businesses to promote social justice and environmental sustainability.)  Purrfect Play has been committed to earth friendly values since their inception.  We talked to Pam about her business, and this is what she shared with us: “I started this little company as a one woman show and we were "green" from the very start.  It was a challenge because organic materials could not just be bought at JoAnn fabrics and often had to be gotten in larger amounts than we would have wanted to. Plus, educating consumers about why plastics and dyes are not good for their pets is an ongoing challenge.  We constantly work on sharing this important information. Honestly, it would have been much easier to say we were organic but buy organic cottons in bright colors-- but I am a biologist by training and I just knew this was not a good choice for my cats or anyone else’s.  Using local USA labor was another challenge, especially as we have grown. This is why we sell 90% of our toys directly to consumers - this avoids 3rd party mark up and makes our toys much more affordable to the average kitty mom or dad.”  

There is also a vegan line for those pet owners who are concerned about giving their pets toys derived from animal products.  This line uses no silk, wool, or leather.  “I love our vegan line.  Some vegan folk like the synthetic leathers and such but these are all plastic based.  We love hemp because it does come close to being as durable as wool and is animal and earth friendly.  It is all about balance.  We are small so we can truly think about these issues. “ 

In addition to all of this, they have gifts for pet lovers, too. Like this great case for eyeglasses. (Now Mommy can keep her glasses safe in style.)



And now for the fun part – the giveaway! One lucky winner will win this basket of toys from Purrfect Play. 




The giveaway will run through Saturday, September 5 at 12:00 AM and you can enter via the Rafflecopter below.  This is only open to people in the USA.  (We have this basket and it is FAB!!

  12. "Dust Bunnies"! I've never heard them called that before, but my cat loves stuff like that. Well, he doesn't play too much anymore (he is 18, after all) but I'm sure he'd love these. I'm totally going to go look this company up. Thanks for writing about it.
