Kitty Sock Bean - recycled cat toy

Kitty Sock Bean - recycled cat toy
£3.00 1 Available
Love this


An imaginative, plastic free eco friendly cat toy. Stitched from the (thoroughly washed!) tops of socks stuffed with sheep’s wool. These are fully recycled and each one is unique. Sock beans are great toys for patting, bouncing, kicking and chasing - keeping your cat physically fit and mentally stimulated. Our RSPCA foster kittens loved them! See videos of them enjoying a range of homemade toys on instagram (thebramblyhedgepig). A perfect gift for cat lovers and kitties everywhere. Each bean is unique, you can specify at checkout which of the designs pictured you’d like. Currently available: Mustard flower (12cm long) or Green dots (8cm long). If you would like more than one bean please get in touch and I am happy to list and make more!

Please note, cats should always be supervised while playing with toys. If you need to wash your toy use a cat friendly soap and rinse thoroughly but VERY gently, by hand. (Vigorous washing will cause the wool inside to felt and your toy will shrink, but still be perfectly functional!)

Your sock bean will be sent to you in creatively reused packaging materials to lighten our pawprint on the planet, please reuse or recycle them if you can. If you would like your toy to be prettily gift wrapped and/or include a Brambly Hedgepig gift tag, select these options at the checkout. A donation of 5% of the retail price from this sale will be made to the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust.


My partner and I have been fostering cats for the RSPCA for the last few years. We have had all sorts, from pregnancy and kittens to seniors, but all of them have needed love, care, and just as importantly - play! As foster cats generally need to be kept indoors it has been especially important to keep them entertained and stimulated. So I started making toys! Sock beans make me especially happy because I hate throwing out a pretty sock when the fabric of the top is still good but I have worn through the toes and heels beyond repair. Sock beans are a great way to keep enjoying the pattern and give the fabric a new lease of life.
