Tikiri GOLS

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that TIkiri has just been awarded GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) accreditation. This makes Tikiri the first-ever natural rubber toy company to achieve this feat. Once more, you can be safe in the knowledge that your baby will be playing with safe, eco-friendly toys when using Tikiri Toys. 

GOLS set the standards for where natural rubber is sourced from and its onward manufacture.

To become GOLS accredited products must meet the following criteria:

  • Contain more than 95% certified organic raw material.
  • Not exceed the allowed limits for emission testing, polymer and filler percentages, and harmful substances.
  • Meet the standards set for rubber plantation processing units and the retailer.

GOLS ensures they can trace any latex used by a brand by using transaction certificates which are produced at every stage in the supply chain including the plantation, manufacturer, and end retailer. Importantly, GOLS perform yearly audits of any brand who has achieved their accreditation to ensure that brands remain compliant once they have achieved the status. This means that when you buy Tikiri toys you are giving your baby the safest and most eco-friendly produced teething and bath time toys on the planet.

Bath time provides close distraction-free time with your child and has the added benefit of being a great fun way to promote the development of many essential skills such as language and fine motor skills as well as providing an opportunity for sensory play. The use of safe, age-appropriate bath toys increases the play experience for the child. The Tikiri range of baby teethers has the added benefit of being suitable for bath and water play. Choose a gorgeous little character from the My First Farm, My First Zoo, or Ocean Buddies ranges or collect the whole set. All the Tikiri teethers are fully sealed so they remain free from mould and are safe for mouthing babies. Each animal contains a rattle and has been designed to be easy to grip and with ears, tails and feet perfect for chewing on to soothe sore gums.
