Hevea Natural Rubber Whale and Turtle Bath Toy Gift Set - Plant based, Plastic-free, Non-Toxic
2 toys = 3 functions – Playing · Teething · Bathing
Bath time is the perfect occasion to have fun and we are sure that we’ve just found their new best underwater friends.
If you want your children to have non-toxic fun in the pool or bathtub, you’ve got to meet the adorable Hevea Harald the whale and Dagmar the Turtle! They’re made for hours of fun and can splash water. You can also use them to scoop and pour water again and again and again.
All Hevea bath toys can also softly stick and slide on slick surfaces such as the side or bottom of the tub and are made with an innovative closing mechanism which prevents inside mold. All you have to do is open the belly of Ingolf and Dagmar and dry after use. When they re-enter the tub, they can be sealed by the same mechanism and start splashing again.
In the oceans, it’s very difficult for both whales and turtles to escape plastic, but in the tub children both can and should definitely avoid it. Ingolf and Dagmar are made from natural rubber which is just as natural as the giants of the oceans. They are plant based, completely plastic-free and non-toxic. Their lovely grey and mint colours are naturally approved for food contact by the FDA (U.S Food and Drug Administration).
These sweet friends are a great hit for both parents, children and the planet.
What is Hevea?
It's 100% natural rubber from the Hevea Brasisliensis tree. The name "Hevea" originates from the Latin name for a genus of rubber trees, Hevea Brasiliensis.
Hevea teethers are different from all other teethers because they are produced sustainably. Hevea gives you the opportunity to give only the best to your child while at the same time taking care of the environment.
Hevea pacifiers and teethers are made of 100% natural rubber, which is a natural sap coming from the rubber tree. As it is a natural material, it can vary in colour and shape. Also as it is biodegradable, it needs to stay of out sunlight and moist environments to prolong its lifespan. This also means that it doesn’t always have the same colour and it doesn’t last forever - as with organic apples, no two look the same – that's the beauty of being natural!!! Natural rubber can be broken down physically and/or chemically by microorganisms.
As well as producing great products, Hevea have a strong natural ethic, making us love them even more:
'At Hevea™ we truly want to be sustainable. We do our best to be a responsible company and always look for innovative ways to reduce, re-use and recycle. While many other pacifiers are packed in unnecessary amounts of plastic, which endangers nature, Hevea™ products are only packaged in a beautifully designed box of recycled papers.
We use soy ink on our packaging. Soy ink is naturally low in VOCs and is made of a renewable resource, using less energy to produce than other inks, and its post-production waste is not hazardous.
We use recycled paper for the packaging. This means that the uncoated paper contains a minimum of 30% post-consumer fiber, and the coated paper contains a minimum of 10% post-consumer fiber.
Our accessories are made of organic cotton. This means that the ingredients are grown without the use of chemical herbicides, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).'
