Picnic Pals – irresistible baby shower and grandbaby gifts!

Apple Park’s founder, Angie Ting, comes from a family of experienced toy makers. With her two children in mind, Angie formed a partnership with Susan Pate of Pate International in San Francisco and Susan’s daughter, Chloe, to create the Apple Park line in 2009. Her vision was to reinvent classic children’s toys in an environmentally responsible way using only the finest eco-friendly materials available. The result?  Picnic Pals. These unique hypoallergenic toys are 100% certified organic cotton, free from chemicals and carcinogens.

Apple Park’s production facility was the first organic soft toy factory in China to be certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard aka GOTS, resulting in products that are safe and good for the earth. They are also ASTM certified and are Azo Dye Free. “Apple” is symbolic for a new beginning, the life cycle, nature, love, curiosity, and education. “Park” signifies a place where man has collaborated with nature for the purpose of preservation and enjoyment. Joined together, Apple Park represents the ideals that define their brand.

You can’t help but love the Picnic Pals family – soft and luxurious monkey, lamby, cubby, bunny and ducky. Select from the product line of blankets and deluxe blankets – bordered in natural silk and great for the crib. Each of the Pals has their very own wrist rattle (also available in a daisy). The Apple Seed Rattle will have your tiny tots first responding to the bright red color, then reaching for the silk leaf and delighting to the sound of seeds inside. Irresistible finger and hand puppets are always attention getters especially with their personalized packaging for the trip home! 100% organic soft blocks come in sets of three adorned with appliqués, colored apples, numbers, and silk gingham patches. Each block makes a different sound – a bell, rattle, and squeaker – that will have your tiny ones giggling with glee. Also available are soft teething rings and baby cloth sets which are multifunctional and embroidered with a Picnic Pal and a heart shaped apple. Oh, and don’t forget the books where the adventurous Picnic Pals teach children about the environment, living a healthy lifestyle and the value of friendship!
