Dress-Up Boy Grasshopper Toy by Ethical Company Barefoot
Gorgeous, hand-made grasshopper, ethically produced, in cotton.
This friendly grasshopper toy is made by the wonderful 'Barefoot' of Sri Lanka. Each toy is individually hand-made by one person from start to finish. The human touch in the weaving process gives character and durability to each toy. For this reason, no two are the same and it's important to note that the photograph here gives you a great idea of the bright colour combinations of the grasshopper's clothes, butis not necessarily a representation of the exact colours you will receive. All grasshoppers have green bodies. They measure approx 26cm to the tip of their antennae. The boys are dressed in trousers, bib & collar, (girls in a pinafore dress with a collar and frilly knickers and can also be found here at The One Stop Bug Shop). All clothes are removable, as are the wings, providing extra play value. These are great fun, with cheerful smiles, and are sure to become firm favourites! These grasshoppers have the European CE Safety Standard Certificate.
Barefoot pride themselves in being a completely ethical and environmentally friendly company. All toys are made from hand-dyed cotton, using eco-friendly Swiss dyes, and dried in the sun. Stuffed toys have kapok pulp fillings, so all fibres are natural, and WASHABLE! The women that create these little characters work from mall rural workshops and No child labour is used. Employees are given a decent wage and benefits.
