About Nesting

Our Proudly South African
Soft Toy Range

At Nesting we realised that there is a need for safe, unique, and locally made soft toys in South Africa. In early 2017, our founder Lucinda wanted a baby-safe, special and Proudly South African toy for her niece Siena to take back to the UK and our flagship SA Giraffe was born! Since then, our giraffes have travelled all over South Africa and the world to many happy customers. Our SA Giraffes are available in almost every colour of the rainbow, with a South African Flag and colourful ribbon taglets.

In 2020 Nesting officially began and we expanded to include the Nesting Naturals Range of soft toys.

Perfect for eco-conscious parents, hypoallergenic, toxin-free and biodegradable. The Naturals Range is handmade with organic hemp and cotton linen, 100% cotton thread and is stuffed with pure wool fibres. Our range currently includes a Naturals Giraffe and Linen Bunny with built-in rattle for enhanced sensory development.
