The dolls and their colors represent eco friendly themes, with Mr. GreeNee representing global warming; Mrs. GreeNee denoting everything organic; Val is an animal lover; Henry represents solar power; Dakota is a recycler, and Gap represents water conservation.
Mr. GreeNee, drawn by the four year old daughter of the company's founders, first appeared in a book, published by the child. He and all members of the family contain pillow stuffing, and have the whimsical expressions of a child's drawing. They are sold in packs of six, which can include one each of the whole family or any combination of family members. They can also be sold as a family set or sold singly. The wholesale cost is $10 per unit, or $60 for the family set. The suggested retail price is $20, which translates to $120 for a set containing the full family.
