At oogaa Home we take an open and optimistic approach to childhood — and to the future (they’re the same thing, aren’t they?)
All oogaa Home products, from concept to research & development and into your child’s play, are crafted lovingly from materials and designs that impact well-being in a positive way. Our mission is to ensure that children everywhere come into contact with only the healthiest possible materials and designs — at play, meal or bedtime.
One example: scientific studies have proven that even a small amount of heat can allow harmful toxins to leach from all plastics. oogaa Home founder Samantha Skolnik initially designed the dinnerware range to be a soft plastic, until her research on the health risks posed by plastics.
“I was shocked to find that even the heat generated by warm baby food alone is enough heat to leach poison from the plastic and into your child,” Skolnik says.
Redirecting her search to identify alternative materials, Skolnik began to work with silicone — a rubber, not a plastic. Silicone has many excellent benefits including non-leaching of toxins, does not harbor bacteria, can be safely heated, cools fast and stays soft for babies’ sensitive gums. All of oogaa Home’s silicone products that come in contact with babies’ mouths are tested by the European standards body LFGB.
Our team at oogaa Home and our four little oogaa characters, octopus, elephant, monkey and frog, are dedicated to putting a smile on your baby’s face and continuing to create fun, vibrant and exciting products for you and your home.
Welcome to our world of oogaa Home, living with optimism.
