Our Analysis

Hevea Pondy Fun (with ducky, froggy and fishy) is a collection of raw rubber toys made especially for the bath (or the pool). These adorable toys are soft enough to squeeze, yet strong enough to last. There aren't any holes at the bottom of these rubber animals, so you don't have to worry about any yucky build-up; and, thank goodness, no squeaky noises!

Made of 100% natural rubber, they are free of BPA, phthalates, and PVC, without any additional coloring or synthetics; in addition, the packaging is sustainably made of recycled and biodegradable materials, with all graphics printed in soy ink. And in case you're curious about this Spain-based company's name, it's Latin for a kind of rubber tree (the Hevea Brasiliensis).

We're very happy to have found these little cuties produced so responsibly - because every kid deserves to grow up with a little (toxin-free) rubber ducky!
