When Tanya and Olek Zhylin became parents to little Nicole in 2007, they felt compelled to provide her with the very best – and safest – of everything. Both committed to living eco-friendly lives, the IT specialists found it difficult to source natural bath products for their daughter – so they began to make their own. Caaocho – a line of 100 per cent natural toys – was born in 2013. Using 100 per cent pure natural rubber, caaocho makes toys and teethers that are safe, non-toxic, sensory and fun for babies to enjoy day after day. Caaocho also believes in giving back, and supports HealthyChild.org, a national non-profit committed to reducing the amount of chemicals children of all ages are exposed to.
Caaocho’s Mele the Sea Turtle Bath Toy (‘Mele’ means “song/poem” in Hawaiian) is sustainable, non-toxic, biodegradable and the perfect bath toy. Made from rubber from the Hevea rubber tree, it’s certified BPA, PVC, Phthalate and Nitrosamine free, painted with food-grade paints and completely safe for your baby to slobber on. Mele’s bright colors provide visual stimulation, while her texture encourages tactile exploration through the hands and mouth. All Caaocho’s bath toys have a hermetically sealed design, which makes them a great water play companion without any possibility of bacteria and mold growth. As baby grows, Mele the Sea Turtle can become a character or friend, introducing social development and sparking imagination.
