Even though his reputation for being a bit rough may precede him, Gavin the shark is actually a happy and friendly fellow; he really just wants to be your best mate! He has a great sense of humour and is always up for adventure.
Gavin is designed and handmade with love in Tasmania, Australia, using primarily 100% merino wool felt and other natural, sustainably sourced materials. This makes him incredibly tactile, with a variety of textures to explore.
Gavin is on a mission to spread the word about the environmental changes endangering our oceans/waterways, one cuddle at a time!
Unlike most plush toys on the market, rather than being stuffed with purpose-made polyester fibre, Gavin is full of recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) made from recycled plastic bottles, making his insides non-allergenic and antibacterial.
Each large Gavin contains the equivalent of 60 plastic bottles that would otherwise be in landfill, and can be recycled again at the end of Gavin's long and happy life.
Great for children, adults or decor, a friend of the sea is a friend for life!
