Rubber toys used to be commonplace in many homes. They were soft and flexible; and they would not hurt anyone, no matter how hard they were thrown. Children could twist them, pull them, distort them – but the toys would always spring back to their original shapes. Such were the elastic properties of this wonderful, natural material. And though many toy manufacturers (for people and pets) turned toward the use of plastics and other non-natural products, the results were sometimes unpleasant, and always not natural.
That’s why we’ve been making our playables from locally sourced, plant-derived natural rubber from the hevea tree for over 7o years. We have never even been tempted to use plastic additives, silicones or other potentially harmful substances.
Natural rubber is safe, nontoxic, and naturally soft, elastic, breathable, and perfect for pet and people play. It is also environmentally friendly because it is low impact and sustainably harvested. It is a renewable resource, biodegradable, free of phthalates, PVC (polyvinyl chloride), petroleum and heavy metals.
