This clever bear is more than just a comforting soft toy for babies and toddlers - she also doubles as a flip-up book! She has chewable ears, dangly arms and legs, and her special tummy has three flip-up 'pages', each featuring an embroidered facial expression of a toddler's most common emotions. She is also great for sitting on a shelf as her bold, high contrasting imagery is perfect for stimulating very young eyes.

Recommended age from 3 months, although suitable from birth.

Body measures approximately 17cm high x 10cm wide. Ears, arms and legs measure approximately 12cm long.

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. Also no chemical softeners have been used.

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. For more information about GOTS certification please visit http://www.global-standard.org.

All packaging is FSC certified and printed with soy-based inks.



RESPONSIBLY SOURCED

Wee partners only with responsible producers that abide by a code of conduct that includes ecologically and socially sustainable practices. They pay their workers a fair wage and provide good working conditions.

Back in 2002, Wee Gallery founders, graphic designer Surya and teacher Dave, were fascinated by the idea of helping their new baby’s brain develop by literally playing with visuals. But instead of just drawing black lines on a piece of paper, they created a planet of animals, which continued to entertain Siddu as he got older.

Since then, Wee Gallery’s scope has expanded as the couple have learned along with Sid, and his sister Anya, who was born in 2005. The children are now helping to choose animals and assist with the design by painting lots of versions and then choosing the best ones.
