Karri means eucalyptus in the Aboriginal language, a perfect name for a Koala, who are known to be picky eaters and Karri is no exception. Did you know koala survive on a diet of eucalyptus leaves and spend most of their lives hanging out in gum trees?
Karri is holding a eucalyptus leaf just in case she needs a snack! Koalas sleep or rest for up to 22 hours each day so Karri will always be ready to snuggle for naps or bedtime.
Koala Plushies on a Mission to Save Their Species
Rescue Plushies has partnered with the Australian Koala Foundation by donating 10% of sales from each Koala Plushie sold.
I had the good fortune to visit Deborah Tabert OAM, known as "Koala Woman" and Australian Koala Foundations leader, at her home for dinner with the Jack Hanna Into the Wild film crew. This visit touched me and I have planned to give back since my visit.
MEET KARRI the KOALA
Your Rescue Plushie Koala will arrive protected in a beautifully designed box. Inside the box, saying hi to you is Karri, a hug-worthy plushie. A printed illustration card with Karri's story and a QR code where you can learn more.
Plus, you will find a mini koala plushie key chain with a custom printed Rescue Plushie strap. You can attach your keychain to a backpack, handbag and more. This conversation starter will show your enthusiasm for Koala and remind you to talk to your friends about Koala and how to help save them.
Karri would like to create a bond between you and the koalas who have been rescued and living in Australia. Connection leads to love and a desire to save them.
We use recycled cardboard in our packaging.
The fill in our plushies are made from recycled water bottles.
Rescue Plushies makes every effort to be free of single use plastic.
