April is Buy 1 Give 1 Month at The Toy Cove!

April's here, and for The Toy Cove, that means Buy 1 Give 1 month is back.

As you may know from years past, each April we at The Toy Cove commit to donating one plush toy for every toy purchased to a child (or senior) in need. Charities such as S.A.F.E. and Project Smile are just two organizations that provide stuffed animals to children in emergency situations.

No code or special link is needed. For every purchase during the month of April (via our Etsy shop or website), we will donate one stuffed animal to an organization such as the ones listed above.
The Toy Cove's Black Cats make purfect donation plushies,
as they are mid-sized and have no detachable pieces.
Stuffed animals can be a tremendous source of comfort for a child experiencing a disaster or frightening separation. I hope that you'll join us this April as we help make the world a more loving place, one plushie at a time.

You can participate in The Toy Cove's Buy 1 Give 1 month by making any purchase via The Toy Cove on Etsy or TheToyCove.com during the month of April.

A Present For Your Inner Mermaid

February has been an exciting month here at The Toy Cove. Last week, we announced our first-ever grown-up item: the Mermaid's Purse purse.

Mermaid's Purse Wristlet

The Mermaid's Purse with Baby Skate attracted an unprecedented amount of attention when we released it in December, and many of those who favorited it on Etsy loved the idea of having a mermaid's purse (the beautiful egg casing of skates and sharks) of as a human-sized zippered pouch.

So, we took it a step farther, and made a mermaid's purse that grown-ups can wear.

The Mermaid's Purse Wristlet is a faux leather handbag that can be worn either with a wrist strap or as a clutch. The purple satin lining ads an unobtrusive touch of deep sea color.

Even hermit crabs love a mermaid's purse.
