Tatyana: Hi, I am Tatyana and this is Haute Mama, the maternity lifestyle series that offers you diet, style, beauty, and product advice, keeps you one Haute Mama. Sarah Beatty: I really believe the consumers today deserve better products, and that's where the markets they should be bringing. So we work really hard to find those great products. When you are thinking about toys for kids, you want to look for products that are not treated with any kind of synthetic. This monkey is from some of the best cashmere and others on the markets place. It's beautiful wool, and there is a way now we can recreate it into a loving toy for kid who actually can maintain this toy with soap and water very simply, and it will be a lifelong toy. Tatyana: And it looks like a wool sweater. Now, these are also wool, and these are from Kenya, from Africa. How did you find these? Sarah Beatty: These Kenana Critters actually are from Kenya. They are made by women who have come out of difficult situations of domestic violence and are in homes, so they're trying to create new opportunities for themselves. These are spirit shakers from Little Sapling Toys. They are made out of FSC Certified or reclaimed wood. They are finished with all natural beeswax finish. They have copper. You can hear that, they have little copper molecules inside and so every single one sounds a little bit different. This is actually from all natural soy silk, it's non-toxic, wonderful fill. This is a nice thing. Tatyana: I have never seen anything made out of soy fibre. Sarah Beatty: There are so many ways that you can express yourself and live in a healthy environment for you, for your family, and make sure that it's a pleasurable one. Tatyana: Yeah, couldn't have said it better than myself. Thanks Sarah. For more information, visit hautemamaonline.com
