CAN I WASH BUDDIE?
We do our best to keep buddie clean during the manufacturing process but as anything you buy for your baby, we recommend washing buddie before giving him to your child. You can either wash with soap and warm water or run buddie through your dishwasher.
IS BUDDIE DURABLE?
Buddie has gone through rigorous testing which included numorous stress tests to define its breaking point. We are confident that buddie can withstand whatever your baby can dish out. Even though the material is extremely durable, we do not recommend giving buddie to your pets and if ever you notice a broken surface or loose piece, please remove buddie from your child's toy rotation.
DOES BUDDIE HAVE A SCENT?
Yes! Buddie has a vanilla oil mixed into the elastomer that is FDA approved and safe for your baby.
WHY ARE THERE HOLES ON BUDDIE?
The large hole underneath and the small hole on buddie's head assist in the molding process but they also allow for increased airflow so buddie can dry easily after washing
WHY IS BUDDIE NO LONGER TRANSLUCENT?
When we first started molding buddie, we loved the look of the translucent material. Unfortunately, in order to maintain clarity you cannot recycle or regrind material. Since Buddie is difficult shape to mold, we were throwing away a lot of "deformed" toys and wasting a lot of unused material. So in order to reduce the amount of waste and keep our process as "green" as possible, we decided to make the colors opaque. Rest assured, the opacity is the only thing that has changed on buddie, he still has the same great material and scent that we all love.
