AS SEEN IN "PREGNANCY AND BIRTH MAGAZINE" AND AWARDED THE "P&B LOVES" STAMP OF APPROVAL, MARCH 2010 ISSUE
Does your baby or toddler delight in enthusiastically pulling wipes out of their packet or tissues out of their box?
In the likely event that they do, this award-winning toy is a stroke of pure genius, designed by a mum, especially for them! It's inspired by the fact that babies and toddlers seem to universally get that mischievous glint in their eyes when they manage to get their hands on a packet of baby wipes or box of tissues - then delighting in pulling each them all out of the packet, like scarves from a magicians hat!
This softly padded cube is made with certified 100% organic cotton jersey and comes with a five piece set of organic cotton squares, four of which have sensory fillings. There are little circles of Velcro at two diagonally opposite corners of the squares, so they can either be attached to each other or kept separate. Then, rather than launching their attack on the wipes or tissues, babies and toddlers can gleefully enjoy the same entertaining pastime, without their mum being left the miserable (and quite impossible) task of trying to stuff wipes or half-shredded tissues back into their packets!
There's a choice of fun and educational fillings available which can easily be pulled apart, stuck back together and rearranged in any order. These enable the toy to adapt as the child grows and develops new skills, with new filling designs to be released periodically.
In addition to being such a great design, painstaking efforts have been made to ensure that this is an exceptionally environmentally-responsible and ethical toy.
The filling included with the cube is the "Wonder Family" set, matching the characters printed on the cube. Four of these contain an internal sensory feature: a ball shaped bell, a squeaker, a rattle and one with crinkly paper inside. (Please note that these internal components are made with synthetic materials.) The top layer of each square is 100% organic cotton jersey incorporating the feature design and the reverse sides are combinations of plain black and white woven organic cotton fabric. The "Wonders Family" squares are also available as a separate set. With a duplicate set, games such as "pairs" and "snap" can add an additional dimension of fun!
This brilliantly fun toy has tonnes of appeal to babies and children. Furthermore it is eczema, asthma and allergy-friendly and very kind to the environment too!
Presented in an eco-friendly box, it's nice and easy to gift wrap too! If buying for a gift, why not personalise it with individual letter fillings which spell out the child's name? Individual letters are available separately for 99p each.
Additional sets fillings available include: The Wonders Bunny Family, Dinosaurs, Alphabet Letters A-Z, Individual Alphabet Letters, Numbers, Appliqued Shapes, Farmyard Animals, Goldilocks and Emotions.
Machine washable to 30ºC and can be tumble dried.

It recently won an award from Sri Lanka's Chamber of Industry for industrial excellence, including how workers were treated and compliance with their human rights.

Organic cotton fibres grown in: India and Pakistan
Outer material: Both the outer fabric and the inside lining of the cube is 100% certified organic cotton (SKAL/Control Union organic certification) in addition to Öko-tex 100 certification. What's Öko-Tex 100?
Filling: The aforementioned organic cotton outer and inner lining fabrics of the cube contain a gently padded filling of very soft 100% PET fleece (eco-friendly 100% recycled polyester fibres).
Whitening/dyeing/finishing: All whitening/dyeing and finishing was carried out prior to organic certification so all of these processes met organic standards and were included when the organic certification was awarded. The dyes used are low environmental impact dyes and they react very effectively with the fabric, eliminating the need for colour fixing agents. Non-toxic ink is used for all printed features on the cube and the filling squares.
