Best Years: Pterodactyl Knitted Midi Dinosaur

£16.95

Description
Our pterodactyl knitted flying dinosaur toy in striking yellow yarn has bat-like wings and a crest on its head. The pterodactyl is not strictly a dinosaur but was in fact a type of flying reptile - part of the pterosaur family. As it lived in the same period as the dinosaurs, in the late Jurassic period, we have decided to add it to our knitted dinosaur toys family. Pterodactyls would have been approximately the same size as modern birds such as eagles and hawks.
if you are looking for unique gift ideas for kids, a knitted pterodactyl will fit the brief! Also available as a large dinosaur cuddly toy and a small baby rattle.

GILES PTERODACTYL
Meet our favourite Pterodactyl, Giles
He's a wild and crazy, orange reptile
He's very loud and lots of fun
And he'll make you laugh when you are feeling glum.

Brand

We love toys. We love how they help imaginative play, and help cement friendships. We love how children create worlds around their toys and this is why we feel that toys should be as special as the children who play with them.

So we spend our lives searching for the best possible toys and the people who can make them. We like to work with people who share our values which is how we came to partner with Pebble and their network of fair trade cooperatives. We also work with small producers in Sri Lanka and Egypt. Talented people who make the most gorgeous toys

Not only do we think that we have the cutest toys around but they are uniquely suited to the needs of young children. Knitted and crochet toys bring a tactile quality to baby toys which is great for helping sensory development. They are also robust enough to stand up to even the most active of toddler play. And it helps that they are machine washable too!

Our dinosaur toys have it all - fun, engaging, loads of play value, tactile, bright, practical and handmade. What more could you ask?

About Us
Best Years have been specialising in making toys for well over 10 years and were the first people to introduce knitted dinosaur toys to the world! Best Years now offer a wide selection of knitted dinosaur toys and have something suitable for everyone from babies to young children to dinosaur mad adults!

Having young children ourselves the appeal of knitted and crochet toys was instant as it offered a great alternative to the ubiquitous soft toys found all over the high street.

We are an ethical company and ethical sourcing is at the core of all our products so we found a great factory to make our first knitted toys for us, and now we have hundreds, still working with the same people we met all those years ago.

This interest in ethical sourcing also led to a 10 year partnership with the Pebble fair trade cooperatives who hand make knitted and crochet toys in rural Bangladesh creating thousands of fairly paid and flexible jobs in the process.

And since knitted and crochet goes hand in hand with cotton it was a natural process for us to find the organic cotton Under the Nile ranges we which we now offer. We have also expanded into handmade Natural Rubber Bath Toys and Teethers including our bestselling natural rubber rubber dinosaur toys, as well as fair trade handmade wooden toys.

So whether you are looking for a great toy for your child, a knitted dinosaur toy or specifically for a fair trade and/or organic toy we have a great selection for you to choose from.
