Molo Design Felt Rocks

Tired of plastic? According to Molo Design, most toys don't leave enough room for imagination- they're already formed into what they're supposed to be and that's that. So there's plenty of room for imagination with these felt rocks. Felt rocks are 100% pure wool and hand dyed. Like all of Molo Design's products, they're also very green.

The felt rocks are actually a by-product of the process of making polishing wheels for optical lenses. In the process, the wool gathers like snowballs or like rocks formed in a river. The rocks are only 4-6 inches across. They come in a great felt bag as shown above. We like the idea, but wish they were a little bit bigger. Not knowing the price, it's hard to say if this is worth the investment. Still-you have to give them credit for the idea and design.

Check out their Softseating as well, made entirely of recycled kraft paper. Who needs a beanbag? Contact the folks at Molo Design to find a retailer near you.
