I love to see a fabulous Canadian company hold their own in the online world of organic clothing. Too often us Canadians have very little local choices when it comes to eco-friendly clothing for toddlers. I’m very happy to introduce you to Squishy Fish an Ontario, Canada owned and operated comapny that is an award Winner! Squishy fish even uses local Canadian manufacturing to support Canadian economy and to oversee the operation.
For review, the Twins were each sent an adorable organic tee from Squishy Fish. One is the pretty and girly ‘love’ design with the flower, and the other a stunning and striking ‘shine’ design with the bee.
The first thing I noticed when I seen the tees was the color. Squishy Fish uses non-toxic, Azo-free dyes and the colors are simply beautiful. When I first touched the organic tees from Squishy Fish, I gasped at the softness of the fabric. Made from 100% Control Union certified organic cotton which is chemical free and unbleached, the texture is as soft as a child’s skin. Yet, it’s not flimsy or too delicate – after all, toddlers need sturdy clothing to stand up to their wear and tear.
That’s why I like that the organic cotton used are interlocked fibers and it holds it’s shape against pulling and tugging. I also noted that after washes, and intentional pulling and twisting of the tee – the design doesn’t flake, peel nor change shape. Amazing how quality organic cotton can be so very tender and loving on the skin, yet packs more muscle than you would think. For the Twins sensitive skin, and just for the sheer comfort of having such a silky fabric surrounding them – Squishy Fish has it covered. And, the fun and playful designs – they suit toddlers so perfectly as well!
Squishy Fish has onesies & tees, pants & blankets and gift sets too. There are styles to suit any toddler, boy or girl – and sizes range from 3-6m to 18-24m. For online shoppers, shippingis always a question when it comes to purchasing. I added many combinations of Squishy Fish products to ‘my cart’, from a $25 order all the way into the $100’s, and shipping stayed at a constant $4.95 for Canadians and $6.95 for US residents. And, make sure to check out the retailers section for a list of online stores that carry Squishy Fish, as well as some storefront shops.
