Saving gorillas one doll at a time

Indy Plush, makers of eco-friendly dolls and clothing based in Los Angeles, has created a unique partnership with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International.

Indy Plush gorilla dolls are now available at;  selected boutiques throughout the continental U.S.; Whole Foods’ Whole Body departments in northern California and Oregon; the Indy Plush show room in Marina Del Rey, California; and at
