All Pebble pixie rattles are named after trees, plants and flowers in the garden and their colours are inspired by their names. Pebble Pixie Rattles are created with no faces for a very special reason. The “Steiner” theory is that if children’s toys have minimal expressions then the child is able to project it’s own emotions onto the toy and that this leads to more flexible and creative play. So if you’re sleepy then you can pretend that your toy is sleepy too. This is such a lovely concept and hope you will enjoy all the little pixies.
The ladies who hand-knit them in rural Bangladesh are extremely talented and capable artisans. They have incredible workmanship. The ladies smile because the toys bring them work, the parents smile because the toys keep their babies happy and enable them to shop with a conscience and the babies smile – well you can see why!
Buying a Pebble toy is your small contribution to supporting families in rural Bangladesh, removing the need for economic migration to the cities and providing women with flexible working opportunities which are close to their homes. Pebble is part of a non-profit fair trade organisation in Bangladesh, whose mission is to create fairly paid, good quality, flexible and local employment for rural women who are poor and often disadvantaged.
