His fine paws are easy to grip and are perfect for chewing, thus relieving teething pain, and the rattle is pleasantly quiet compared to many of the noisy plastic toys!

Approximately 20.5cm long.

Machine washable at 40°c, gentle cycle.
ORGANIC

Made from GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton. The cotton is grown organically without using toxic fertilisers and chemical pesticides ensuring environmentally sustainable production.

In order to obtain the GOTS quality mark, strict requirements and production processes throughout the entire textile chain must be adhered to. It also means every step of production is checked and all chemicals used such as dyestuffs must meet certain environmental and toxilogical criteria.

NATURAL

All toys in the Funky Feet range are made from 100% natural materials, carry the CE mark and are safety tested to EN71.

They are filled with 100% corn fibre Polylactide (PLA), which is a new fibre derived from the starch of corn plants making it environmentally friendly and sustainable. Fermentation of the sugars from these plants produces lactic acid and after further reactions, lactide forms. This filling carries the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, and is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, biodegradable and compostable. Oeko-Tex® ensures the product contains no toxic or harmful substances.


All packaging is made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) approved card. The FSC is an international non-profit organisation that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry and certifies forests worldwide to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards. Therefore products like FSC paper and wood have been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner.
Wooly Organic involve young designers - students and graduates from the Art Academy of Latvia - in the design process of their toys.

The designs are inspired by the Steiner (Waldorf) education system, created by Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925), an Austrian born innovative academic whose ideas founded the basis of Anthroposophy. Anthroposophy is a modern spiritual path that cherishes and respects the freedom of each individual, irrespective of academic ability, class, ethnicity or religion and takes into account the needs of the child as a whole – academic, physical, emotional and spiritual.

Wooly Organic toys therefore have minimal facial features in order to encourage the imagination of a young child and to cultivate “inner picturing” abilities. If a toy has just two eyes, the child is able to imagine the toy expressing its own emotions, encouraging a complete imaginative life.
