Founded in the midst of the depression in 1933, family owned and operated Mary Meyer® began in New York City when a young woman busy creating and sewing small fabric toys met a German bachelor. One thing led to another; they married, started a business together then relocated to Vermont where the company remains to this day, operating under the stewardship of their children and grandchildren. Known for high quality plush toys, the toys are designed in Vermont and manufactured overseas in accordance with strict US toy safety requirements. Dedicated to producing beautiful, safe, educational toys and collectibles from the best materials and finest designs, company designers monitor what's new, how children are playing and what the world looks like through their eyes in order to create childhood companions meant to be cherished and loved for years. Products include super-soft and huggable pink and blue plush bears, pillow bears and plush chime balls that are perfect for baby.
