Tell Me More This super cute elephant baby toy is a teether, a rattle and a bath toy all in one! It is hand made from soft pure organic rubber and is certified plastic free, BPA free and phthalate free making it safe for relieving baby's sore, tender gums during teething.
Elephant's soft and easy to grasp body is perfect for sensory play, and his cute tinkling rattle will quickly become baby's favourite new sound! He is great fun to float in the bath, and is more hygienic than your average bath toy because there is no air hole where bath water can get in; preventing the growth of bacteria and mould.
Handmade in Sri Lanka from 100% pure organic rubber with GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) accreditation. Hand painted using water based non-toxic dyes and pigments. Comes with recycled card swing tag printed with soy based inks.
The latex used for this toy has been ethically sourced directly through a small, family run plantation that uses traditional methods to extract it from the Havea trees - a process called tapping. It’s a slow process and must be done by a skilled hand in an environmentally friendly way so the trees remain in good health. The trees release the latex which slowly drips into a holding cup. This process takes around 6 hours. In addition to taking good care of the trees - no chemicals or preservatives are added to the latex to ensure that the material remains as pure as possible.
The purchase of rubber toys in place of plastic is a great eco friendly choice. Not only is rubber natural and non-toxic, it is also kinder on the planet as it can take around 50 years to break down as opposed to thousands with plastic, if ever at all! Rubber can also be recycled and made into something else of use such as matting and sports turf etc.
Suitable from birth. Carries CE approval mark for health, safety and environmental protection.
Approximately 11cm long x 9.5cm high. About the Brand Sri Lankan brand Tikiri has been manufacturing and exporting a wide collection of baby toys since 1991, and have more recently become the first and only company globally to produce organic rubber baby toys.
Fortunately, Tikiri (which means ‘teeny tiny’ in their native language of Sinhala) is lucky enough to be based in beautiful Sri Lanka, where they have been growing rubber trees since the 1800s. In 1876 about 2000 seedlings were sent to Ceylon (modern day Sri Lanka) which started off their rubber plantations. All Tikiri's rubber is sourced directly from a local, family run organic plantation so cuts down transportation costs and CO2 emissions of their main raw material as well as supporting small businesses in their own country.
Tikiri is proud to be certified by the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX). SEDEX is a non-profit organisation for businesses engaged in continuous improvement of the ethical and responsible practices of their supply chains.
They also receive regular audits from OMEGA Compliance Limited, a specialist auditing and inspection company offering a full spectrum of social and ethical compliance, supply chain security and quality inspection services.
