Finding new brands of organic, natural, and wooden toys is not often easy but once in a while we stumble on one and say, “Why haven’t we seen them before now?” Such is the case with UK manufacturer, Nature’s Purest.

Nature’s Purest is based in the UK, and they have their own manufacturing facility in beautiful Sri Lanka. They design and make several lines of boutique baby items, mostly for the nursery, but we fell in love with their stuffed bear, bear lovey, and dolls. Not only are they stinkin’ cute, they are made with a naturally colored cotton that grows in shades of cream, beige, and light green. While not certified organic, their cotton is 100% free of chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers, and their items carry the Oeko-Tex 100 and Garments Without Guilt certification to offer parents peace of mind when purchasing for their children.

Nature’s Purest does offer one item that is certified organic, their ragdoll, Natalie. Natalie stands about 13.5 inches with sweet braided pigtails and a darling outfit that can be removed. She is sweet and soft, and she will make a special friend for any young child.

Nature’s Purest has a collection of soft dolls that make up their “World Family.” Each of these charming dolls is made from scraps from Nature’s Purest’s nursery lines. Pappa is quite the hipster and Mamma lovingly carries Babba in a sling all while caring for this worldly family from around the globe. All clothing, except shoes, are removable and the children’s clothing is interchangeable as they are all the same size. Each doll is sold separately or you can purchase them as a set to make a super special gift.

And for the babies, you can’t go wrong with the darling stuffed bear and bear lovey. The soft velour is made with a naturally colored cotton/poly blend and stuffed with poly-fill. They are not certified organic, but you can read about their 100% naturally grown cotton and feel good about putting either of these bears in the hands of your baby.

Kathe Kruse of Germany is going through some corporate transitions and US retailers are unable to order many of our beloved Waldorf dolls, wooden dollhouse dolls, and organic baby dolls and animals. Hazelnut Kids does still have a broad selection of these items available, but only in limited quantities. We are unsure if and when these items will be available to U.S. retailers again so if you have intentions to purchase any of these items, we recommend you do so soon. And if you have any recommendations for us regarding other Waldorf doll makers, wooden dollhouse dolls, or organic baby dolls and stuffed animals, we would love to hear from you at info@hazelnutkids.com.
