Our Organic Toys
How organic are the toys we stock?
We make it a criteria, for all the soft toys that we stock, that the main outer fabric - usually cotton - that's in contact with skin is certified 100% organically grown/produced. On some of the toys, there may be smaller sections of fabric, a backing material or minor trimmings which aren't organic. Unfortunately, only a few specialist companies make toys which use organic fabrics inside and out, so not all of the toys we stock have organic fillings. You may be understandably surprised at this.
Please do beware of some retailers' claims that the organic toys they stock are 100% organic - quite possibly, they're not. A prime example of this is the MiYim brand which uses entirely conventional (non-organic) cotton for the filling. We've lost count of how many times we've seen retailers incorrectly describing MiYim toys as 100% organic. If you're opting for organic cotton because of the environmental impact and high pesticide use of conventional cotton, this misinformation will no doubt matter to you.
However, we like to make it easy for you to know exactly what you're buying. To do this, we've set out concise information about each toy's composition, origin and production background, on the lower section of each toy's page.
As far as we know, we're unique in providing this level of detail and transparency.
If you're specifically looking for an organic toy which also has an organic - or at least, a natural filling, please see our dedicated category for these toys.
