Who would love this: Pretend play + felt toys lovers 

Banana, the crescent-shaped fruit with soft delicious flesh and fun-to-peel skin, goes marvellously with sundae. Throw a few felt bananas to the kids, they would make a magical tale out of them; these fruits are ammunition against monster attack, material for “statue of liberty” in the Kingdom of Banana, and “boomerang” fairies that live in enchanted forest. Thanks Dashdu for providing us this Bentley Banana set for review; they keep our imagination active and we are absolutely loving them! 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) Realistic Design- Bentley Banana is a bomb of sweet yellow consists of five banana pieces (5cm diameter each) with realistic-looking black strips, and a matching yellow sorting bowl of 15 cm diameter. The short, curvy and slightly “over-ripe” banana appearance reminds me of the tropical Pisang Raja (the “Banana King”, literally), best used for banana fritters and all sort of South East Asian delicacies. They bring back nostalgia, and I really love how natural they look! Our two year-old spent an afternoon “mixing” the banana pieces in her fruit salad bowl. The cute banana pieces are just the great size for sorting, and the felt texture is so lovely to touch! I love how the set can be easily incorporated into any role-playing or imaginative drama. 

(2) Quality Felt Toys- Felt toys are biodegradable, light in weight, durable, and of heirloom quality. Dashdu toys are handmade from 100% wool. It has that lovely softness, can’t be easily damaged, and can be cleaned using a damp cloth. These are smooth, non-toxic, compostable, eco-friendly toys that would never go out of style! 

(3) Ethically-handmade- Dashdu toys are ethically handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal. It’s inspiring to read how Dashdu has worked with highly skilled local artisans in Nepal to produce various range of heart-warming felt toys that capture the hearts of kids and adults. I love that Dashdu makes a stand to offer fair price for the goods to enhance the lives of these resourceful artisans so that they can financially support their families. I love that each beautifully-made Dashdu toy brings hope and true benefits to the real, hardworking people behind the scene.
