Part of Under the Nile’s renowned fruits and veggies toy collection, this stuffed watermelon is sure to inspire little foodies and encourage healthy eating habits. Made of 100% organic Egyptian cotton, the fruits and veggies toy collection is produced as part of the 13 Villages Project, an initiative created by Under the Nile’s founder to provide safe and healthy work for women in rural Egypt. Each toy is made under fair trade conditions by women in different villages in Egypt out of scraps left over from Under the Nile’s clothing production.
