Rubbabu toys are classic toys that kids never grow bored of. Soft, safe and fun, these toys are designed for many years of play and learning. The soft tactile material makes them a wonderful developmental aid for children of all ages including children with special needs.
The main component of Rubbabu toys is natural rubber foam. This makes up 97% of the toy. Natural rubber has many wonderful properties. It’s anti-microbial, hypo-allergenic and mildew-resistant. The way we use it, we do not add any fillers or chemicals to the pure rubber from the tree. We beat it like a cake mix until it gets foamy. When we bake it into little toys, these toys are soft and squishy like a sponge. It is the ideal material for baby, toddler and children’s toys because it can’t hurt!
The surface of a Rubbabu toy is soft and velvety. This enchanting texture creates a wonderful sensory experience. It provides tactile stimulation that helps babies develop their sense of touch. It also makes Rubbabu toys irresistible and cuddly to little kids. This is great because it encourages kids to touch, grasp and hold the toy, developing their motor skills.
Play is learning and thus the earlier kids start playing, the earlier they start many kinds of learning. Imaginative play, play with building blocks, and learning to read all lay the groundwork for later success in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) or STEAM (which includes Arts) fields. With soft baby-safe toys one can bring these valuable learning opportunities to infants as young as six months old.
