Merrigold wooden toys are made from rubberwood, which is the most ecologically “friendly” timber used in today’s toys and furniture industry.
After the life of a rubber tree, which is generally 25 years, the latex yields become extremely low making it no longer commercially sustainable. The tree is then cut down so that a new tree can be planted. So, unlike other woods that are cut down for the sole purpose of producing furniture, rubberwood is used only after it completes its latex producing cycle and dies. This wood is therefore an environmental – friendly material because we are now using what was going as waste.
Merrigold has been importing rubberwood toys for the past 11 years. The toys are manufactured in Thailand and they are specifically designed to stimulate children’s interest and build on their developmental skills. They also promote interaction between children and parents.
