Dr Who versus Gepetto

Well, as annsolo on twitter I have been having a whole new addiction, creating tweets about my adventures, there are so many ecotweeters out there to follow too. I won 2 wooden toys for the munchkin from an online eco store called Scamps Boutique based in New Zealand! In our surprise package we found a little Gepetto doll, made in New Zealand, to clamp onto bubba blankies or the pram which munchkin has just looooved to have around with us, and a curious little Haba creature. Haba toys are designed and made in the town of Bad Rodach, Germany. Both toy manufacturers use non toxic paints and I have felt fine about la bub exporing them with her mouth, much happier than her constantly putting different types of plastic in her mouth. What I am unclear of is the origins of the wood sourced for the toys and whether they are sustainable sources or not.

The wooden Dalek look-alike has arrived..

Gepetto was no match...
