Made using 100 percent natural rubber from rubber tree latex and food-grade paint. It draws baby's gaze by way of the dark, highly contrasted spots all over its body and becomes a familiar, reassuring object that is easily recognized. Featuring a whistle, Fanfan entertains baby, and develops baby's sense of hearing while helping to establish the relationship of cause to effect. Flexible with several chewable parts (ears, legs, etc.), it is perfectly suited to help soothe baby's gums when getting first teeth. Because it is made from 100 percent natural rubber and 100 percent food-grade paint, it is completely safe for baby. It is lightweight and perfectly suited for baby's little hands and its long legs make it easy to hold. The texture of 100 percent natural rubber reminds baby of the softness of mother's skin and reassures baby. The pleasant and unique smell of 100 percent rubber lends the toy its own character that helps baby to recognize it amongst other toys.
