ABC Kids Expo 2010

Sunday, October 17, 2010 1:47:19 PM PDT

 

Tookee™ exhibited for the first time at the ABC Expo and we loved it! I must say, however, that those five days we spent at the show in Las Vegas were like some form of an extreme sport challenge. But it was worth it, for us the show was a big success. We got to meet a lot of great people, create many new business relationships and received orders for the upcoming holiday season that exceeded our expectations.

Our new sleep sacks will be available in November while the rest of our collection is ready to ship.

Stay tuned.

We are very excited to introduce the new additions to our Organic Baby Sleeping Sacks collection.

Is the little ducky safe?

Monday, June 28, 2010 12:28:18 PM PDT

Are your child’s toys safe? Do you ever wonder whether or not your baby should chew on a plastic toy like a cute little ducky? Most of the toys we all have in the house are made of polyvinylchloride (PVC), which is a hard, brittle plastic. In order to make PVC softer, squishier, and squeezable, manufacturers add one or more of various phthalates. These phthalates are not chemically bound to the PVC molecules. They sit alongside them and easily leach out of the toys when sucked, chewed, or heated (left in the sun). Phthalates are toxic and can cause cancer, kidney and liver damage. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has determined that vinyl chloride is a known human carcinogen (Agency for Toxic Substances, 2007).

Restrictions or bans have been placed on phthalates in PVC toys in the entire European

What is Hemp?

Wednesday, June 2, 2010 3:37:30 PM PDT

Many people ask me what Hemp is and why we chose hemp for our baby product line. Well, hemp (Cannabis sativa) is a strong woody plant similar to Flax or Ramie that is harvested for its fibers as well as for its seeds. Hemp is an extremely fast growing crop, producing more fiber yield per acre than any other source. For example, Hemp can produce 250% more fiber that cotton and 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land. Hemp is anti-microbial and highly resistant to insects. It NEVER requires the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

As a fabric, hemp provides all the warmth and softness of a natural textile but with a superior durability seldom found in other materials. Hemp is extremely versatile and can be used for countless products such as apparel, accessories, shoes, furniture, upholstery, paper and cosmetics. Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers. Products made from hemp will outlast their

As I was starting Tookee, a year and a half ago, common questions among my friends were why organic? and why hemp? After having designed several eco-collections of accessories for babies and putting Tookee on the map of the baby green market, I have learned a lot about this growing market. I now firmly believe that the next generation of mothers will not ask why? anymore but rather where?

Our generation found out about the negative effects our way of life has on our world, and the next generation will work hard to fix that and make our planet a better place. Being in my late thirties I had never heard of the internet or emails before going to college. However, my kids will have a hard time apprehending a world without it. That is how I see the future of organic products, in time it will be hard to purchase anything but organic and sustainable.

I hope you like our new site. My goal is to bring you, in addition to our products, more useful information that will
