Organic Toy Under the Nile Organic Scraptopus Octopus
Eco-friendly organic cotton octopus baby toy from Under the Nile, made entirely with organic cotton scraps of leftover fabric!
This bright and cheerful organic octopus toy makes a fun, educational and natural teething toy for babies but can still be enjoyed by older children too.
As if it didn't already have fantastic eco-friendly credentials, this lovely, bright and interesting 100% organic toy was created to use up scraps of fabric to minimise waste! The brightly coloured legs of this Scraptopus make it a very visually appealing toy to babies and toddlers, as well as having so many legs to chew on! By the time your little one has finished chomping his or her way round the whole of this natural teething toy, the first leg will probably be dry again!
Machine washable on low temperature and gentle wash.
Approximate size 15cm
Suitable from birth

Under the Nile's statement on ethical working conditions for the workers who make their toys:
"We are proud to be part of a project contributing to the development of independent and self sustained communities.
The "13 Villages Project" is a campaign co-conducted by Under the Nile and its farm in Egypt (Sekem). It takes place in 13 rural villages in Sharkeya, Egypt. Through vocational training and infrastructural development, the project is improving the health, skills and overall well being of the village inhabitants. We provide excellent health care as well as education on dental and over all physical health. We begin by educating the villagers on how to make their fruit and vegetable toys. Each village receives an advance for their work and the materials needed to produce that toy. Upon completion, we pick up the finished goods and pay them fair wages for their work.
We are very excited to see the end result. Happy, educated, and healthy human beings."
