The exterior fabric is 100% organic cotton that has been dyed with low impact dyes. They each contain a rattle, which I don't believe is mentioned in the description. The filling is a Polylactic Acid fiber (PLA) which is bio-plastic derived from corn in this case (other starchy plants like rice can also used to manufacture this material). PLA is completely free from petrol-chemicals and I personally feel that it is a safer, more renewable option than the petroleum based polyester fill more commonly used in children's stuffed animals and toys. One thing to keep in mind however is that PLA is often made using genetically modified (GMO) corn so you'll have to weigh the pros and cons and decide if this bothers you or not.
The farm buddies seem well made and clean up very well. Pirate pig has seen a whole lot of spit up from my son and as a result has been subjected to several "baths". I hand wash Pirate Pig in the sink and then toss him in the dryer on low heat and he comes out looking as good as new!
I hope this helps you make a more informed decision.
So the vedict is it's super cute and may be great for a little older kids, but not for babies who put everything in their mouth.
Changing my one star to five stars. It took a few weeks for Apple Park to respond to my concern email, but when they did they were SO genuine and responsive. Nancy, who contacted us, said they've never heard this particular complaint before and expressed concern. She requested a photo so their production team could trouble shoot. She also sent us another plush animal and let us choose any one, so we got Robbie Raccoon AND they send a board book. Such great customer service!
And regarding the dye, we ended up washing the pig in an attempt to stop the dye leak, which is did. It did make the pig a bit floppier, but I knew we'd end up washing him sooner or later (even though it's not recommended).
My guy loves both the pig and raccoon, and sleeps with them both!
PS: Some pages with toys for babies do not display the country and I'm glad this one does.
