If you visited Spring Fair 2020, you may recall that Tikiri Toys won the Gift Association ‘Ethical Toy of the Year’. Tikiri – which means ‘teeny tiny’ in the native language of Sinhala – is based in Sri Lanka. By sourcing and producing all their toys locally, Tikiri greatly minimise both their carbon footprint and their impact on the environment. Not only this, but the factory has a fantastic reputation for looking after the welfare of their employees, holding both BSCI* and SMETA* certification, and demonstrating their commitment to the 10 principles of fair trade.
The family behind Tikiri has spent most of their lives making soft toys for leading global brands. In 2013, they took their abundant love and knowledge of toys and toddlers and launched Tikiri. Tikiri is dedicated to making only top-quality handcrafted toys that promote a child’s physical and emotional development.
In these fast-paced days of technology, we still think there is room for toys that are high-touch. Especially for children who will largely be formed by the experiences they have by the age of 3. Everything made by Tikiri is designed to create a love and respect for the people and world around them.
To this end, we offer natural, handmade alternatives to mass produced plastic toys to help children unplug, learn new skills, and interact with the real world.
This collection of toys uniquely combines texture, touch and personality, to help introduce babies and toddlers to the wonders of the world around them. Handcrafted from eco-friendly and sustainable natural materials, they are the natural choice for every child’s formative years. These toys are made to the highest standards of production and quality. Made from 100% natural rubber from the latex of the Hevea tree and ethically sourced organic cotton*, the range offers toys suitable from birth to 3 years. Tikiri toys can already be found around the globe, giving comfort to babies and toddlers from the four corners of the world.
Recognising the desire for sustainable toys, produced by ethically and socially responsible manufacturers, we are proud to have been chosen to represent the brand in the United Kingdom.
