Hevea | Whale Natural Rubber - PinkRegular price $39.99
Bath time is the perfect occasion to have fun and play with your children and we are sure that we've just found their new best underwater friend. If you want your children to have non-toxic fun in the pool or bathtub, you've got to meet the adorable HEVEA® Ingeborg the whale. Ingeborg and the rest of the HEVEA® Ocean line can also softly stick and slide on slick surfaces such as the side or bottom of the tub – they are made to entertain!
In the oceans, it's very difficult for the whales to escape plastic, but in the tub your children both can and should avoid it. Ingeborg is made from natural rubber, which is just as natural as the giants of the oceans. It's plant based, completely plastic-free and non-toxic. Ingeborg's lovely rose colour is naturally approved for food contact by the FDA (U.S Food and Drug Administration).
Ingeborg the whale is made with Hevea's brand new and innovative closing mechanism, which prevents inside mould. All you've got to do is open the belly of Ingeborg and dry after use. When Ingeborg is re-entering the tub, she can be sealed by the same mechanism and start splashing again.
Ingeborg is going the be a great hit for you, your child and the planet. Say yes to a non-toxic bath time and put the cutest whale in your tub! She is 10cm long, made in Malaysia in fair working conditions, and designed in Denmark. Ingeborg arrives in a cute box made from FSC certified paper and biodegradable materials with Hevea signature graphics printed in vegetable inks.

HEVEA® Ocean toys should be opened after every single use. With the innovative closing mechanism, it's really not rocket science – it's actually very easy to open (and pretty easy to close too).
It's easy to rinse it with lukewarm water – both inside and out. Alternatively, it can be cleaned in a machine especially suitable for rubber, but please don't wash it in a dishwasher. HEVEA® Ocean toys should be dried both inside and outside after every single use and then left to dry completely. This will extend the life of the toy, which is both good for your wallet and for the planet.
If the toys are dirty or have been in humid conditions for a longer period of time, you can consider using vinegar to rinse it. Mix four parts white vinegar to one part warm water. Submerge the toys completely or apply the solution to each toy with a sponge.
When the bathing toy is not in use, dry it and keep in a clean and dry place, out of direct sunlight and heat. Produced from 100% natural rubber latex.
The colours are natural and may fade over time. Natural rubber is a natural material that changes over time.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
HEVEA is not just a brand; it's a story with its own purpose. The HEVEA story is about how we want to leave fingerprints on the world – a fingerprint showing that we strive to do better, to create a more mindful way of taking care of the planet we leave for future generations.
HEVEA is inquisitive. We test, try and make tangible efforts to link sustainable thinking with aesthetic design. We are constantly developing, and we always allow the best ideas to guide us, even though we seldom know where they are going to lead.
HEVEA is more than what meets the eye. We are innovators in natural rubber, in design, in ways to work together, in processes and in distribution.
HEAVE began as a question
Historically, HEVEA began as a question that needed an answer: how to take care of our children and our planet just a little bit better. That makes everything quite simple for us: we were born of an urge to do better. To show that how we act and live in the world makes a difference to ourselves, and our children – the citizens of tomorrow. The lack of natural options for our future generations and the choices we have to make was what made us turn to Hevea Brasiliensis – natural rubber, and this has formed the basis of our mission and our purpose from the very beginning.
PLASTIC IS PASSÉ, NATURAL IS NOW
Hevea, or natural rubber, can replace many kinds of plastic. Hevea decomposes naturally and can be reused to make new products. The wood of the tree itself and the rubber are our only self-imposed limitations when it comes to designing and developing new products. However, this hardly feels limiting as we are still getting to know these materials better and better. In all our curiosity, we keep firmly in contact with our roots and our reason for being here: to give you the option of creating a fingerprint that is slightly better than the one we inherited.
Great design & natural materials
Geographically, our mix is unique. While the hevea trees grow mainly in Southeast Asia, and much of our production requires skills and facilities found close to the plantations where the hevea is harvested, our design philosophy is inherently Danish. Unifying the beautiful design with clear functionality is the core of the renowned Danish design tradition, and we stick to this in discovering and developing all that our cherished hevea can offer.
