Not All Monsters Are Bad!

Wild Republic Launches Monsterkins, A Revolutionary New Eco-Friendly Plush Line of Monsters Made from the Very Same Water Bottles They Eat!

Delivering On Our Promise to The Planet™ With New Eco Line, Monsterkins While Also Supporting Animal Rescue

TWINSBURG, Ohio, April 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Wild Republic, an international toy company committed to the development of high quality plush and toys that nurture our children and encourage a love of nature, is pleased to introduce Monsterkins, a ground-breaking, new eco-friendly plush line just in time for Earth Day. Created for the Earth by the Earth, the new, Monsterkins are fully sustainable, not just carbon neutral and come with a fun backstory in which these adorable monsters eat discarded plastic water bottles. Monsterkins also helps teach our children about the importance of protecting our planet and various ecosystems while offering cuddly fun.

As part of the company’s greater social initiative, Promise to the Planet, a portion of the proceeds from the new line will support animal rescue.

"It was important for us to develop a fun and innovative plush line like Monsterkins made from 100% recycled water bottles, and that also helps to educate our children about the importance of improving our planet," Vishnu Chandran, president of Wild Republic stated. "The fun story behind the line engages children to learn more about our planet, different ecosystems and the importance of conserving and respecting our planet."

Monsterkins are Earth’s creation to help eat the plastic water bottles from land and sea. It may take almost five hundred years for plastic bottles to decompose, but Monsterkins can digest them in only two hours. They thrive on your plastic trash. Whether it’s in the rainforest, on a beach, or trash thrown on the ground, you can rely on a Monsterkins to eat it up and clean it up. There’s a Monsterkins for every environment.

"My grandfather and founder of Wild Republic, G.B. Pillai, and I have made it our mission to educate the world about our ‘Promise to the Planet,’ and how we are personally contributing to sustainability, nature conservation, education, and more," adds Chandran. "We encourage others to do the same, and Monsterkins is the perfect plush line to help educate our young."

The Monsterkins line includes a fun selection of animals including a Monsterkins Dusk, Grom, MK, Muck, Trash Foot, Trashzilla, Vinnie and Vish. Depending on the character, it takes approximately 3 – 26 plastic water bottles to make just one Monsterkins. Each is sold separately and is available in two different sizes, 18" for $30, and 8" for $11.99. Monsterkins is now available for purchase at

Chandran concludes, "Monsterkins are friendly ‘monsters’ that are the perfect nighttime buddy that can also help ease anxieties especially during this very stressful time. The line is soft, colorful, and can easily turn worries into cuddly fun.

Monsterkins are fully sustainable, not just carbon neutral but positively affecting the Earth.
