Collection: Plush & More toys

MARY MEYERS

Mary Meyer was a young wife and mother who helped her family during the Great Depression by sewing animal pin cushions that later became stuffed animal toys. Inventive, driven, and compassionate, Mary built a company that continues to bring joy to children and families all over the world with care, quality, integrity, and love. This intention has been passed down two generations, to Mary’s grandsons who run the company today, because this is who Mary Meyer was and this is what the company she started is all about. 

Life is easier with a friend you can rely on. The friends we make all have faces full of character and cuteness, from fabrics and designs so huggable and soft that you simply can’t resist loving on them. All are also built to meet the highest quality and safety standards to ensure that a Mary Meyer friend is a friend for life. We’re a family company that creates family members to love and grow with for childhood and beyond.

There was a time when technology was a mechanical pencil and a “mobile phone” was one with an extra long cord. The world has changed, and in many ways it’s for the better, but there are some things that can’t be digitized or made into an app. These are the sense of play and imagination that a soft companion can bring to developing young minds. Each of our characters is purpose-built for just that kind of play for your little one: listening to secrets, ready for hugs, and calming their fears. We take this responsibility seriously and we know you do too, so thanks for trusting Mary Meyer.

Here is our five-step approach to safety:

  1. Design – Exceeding ASTM standards is the mantra of our experienced designers. Getting it safe right from the drawing board is the key. Whether they are specifying how items are sewn or which fabrics and components to use, our designers constantly make decisions that keep our toys among the safest in the industry.
  2. Testing – The fabrics and construction of all Mary Meyer toys are fully tested to meet and very often exceed US safety standards. If a toy fails the tests, it is either dropped before production or is redesigned until it passes all safety tests.
  3. Production – Built-in processes during production are designed to maximize safety. These are just some of the examples of why a Mary Meyer toy is safe, no matter which toy it is. Examples are:
    • All toys go through metal detectors to assure no metal fragments are inside our toys.
    • All plastic eyes are sonic-welded in place to assure they remain firmly and safely attached to the surrounding fabric.
    • All beans are sewn into inner bean bags in case during the life of the toy, there is a seam break. The beans remain contained inside a pillow.
  4. Inspection – Ongoing inspections during and after production are an integral part of our safety program. Not only are toys inspected for safety, they are also reviewed for quality control, design consistency, correct labeling, and package integrity.
  5. Compliance Certification – Mary Meyer has pdf’s of each toy’s CPSC Compliance Certificate available to the public as required by law. They can be found on our web site by clicking on the Certificates tab and scrolling to the item number desired. The item number immediately follows “MM”.

We hope this addresses your concerns about the safety of Mary Meyer stuffed toys. If you have further concerns, please email questions to info@marymeyer.com and we will answer them as soon as possible.

About Douglas Co.

DOUGLAS has been a family-owned and operated business since 1956 (that’s 63 years!) and has become one of the oldest and most respected plush companies in the United States.

As a result of our passion for what we do and a strong work ethic, DOUGLAS has grown into an international company with distribution throughout Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

Today, DOUGLAS designs are created in New Hampshire and manufactured in Asia to our exacting specifications and standards. They are in full compliance with existing Toy Safety Standards. We have also exported our core values by choosing manufacturing partners who adhere to a strict code of ethics and provide a safe and healthy working environment. As a result, DOUGLAS has long-standing relationships with factories which are vital to maintaining consistently high quality and unique appeal.

Our continued business success comes from unique designs, high quality materials, and craftsmanship. Our classic animals have gestures and expressions that clearly distinguish them as “Douglas.” Their faces evoke a sense of connection and endearment. We are known for offering the unusual breeds and hard-to-find species.

The heart of our success comes from our in-house USA design team. They create our designs and steward them from conception to final production. In recent years, the power of our creative department has led us into the fashion/accessory arena. They have a unique talent for walking the edge – to offer truly unique, trendy, and irresistible toy/accessories. DOUGLAS has a way with style, color, and complimentary fabrics that makes our collection of fashion “saks” speak for themselves!

DOUGLAS BABY was also born because of the vision and strength of our design team. This collection brings us “full circle” to our beginnings in 1956 as an Infant Toy Producer. We now have a collection of the softest, most endearing designs in both cuddle toys and activity toys for Baby. Our designers mix and match colors, fabrics, and embellishments to provide babies with interactive and comforting products.

From “classic” to “trendy” to “baby,” DOUGLAS spins a web of wonderful products for the discerning market of today. Everybody here has a passion for what we do and takes our mission seriously to promote imaginative play and emotional connection for children of all ages
