Whether you’ve got boys or girls, one toy that never fails to entertain is pretend food. My kids have spent hours dicing wooden vegetables, slicing birthday cake, flipping burgers on the grill and holding tea parties with plastic petit fours. Whilst I’m happy to sit down for an imaginary cup of tea, the doughnut served on the same plate as a chicken drumstick never looks that appetizing.
However, Looolo‘s organic creations should get mouths watering when your preschooler next entertains. Try wholegrain bagels stuffed with cream cheese, lettuce and slices of wild salmon or how about a burger with organic pickles, thick slices of tomato and cheese, a beef patty and lettuce on a toasted bun?
Canadian-based textile designer Joanna Notkin is driven by the belief that good design is sustainable design. As a result, her textiles are made using processes that have very little or no environmental impact and all are fully biodegradable. In fact, when you’re finished with a Looolo product you can put it in your composter and it will be returned to the earth.
The delightful and tasty bagel, burger and peanut butter and jam sandwich are the first foray into children’s toys for Looolo Textiles, who until now have concentrated on homeware design. Notkin let Babyology know that there is more Looolo for kids on the way, in fact a whole sandwich shop if things go to plan.
Cute, earth-friendly and 100 per cent organic fun.
The PB&J sandwich is US$34.99 and the burger and bagel are US$37.99. If you’re hungry for these tasty morsels, contact Looolo directly to buy.
