    Hello, I'm Damini. My father started this business in India and created the process for making plush, velvety, flocked pieces. They're great as toys, and perfect on your desk. I'm here to answer questions about Rubbabu.

    These are very cool. Does the covering shed? I ask because I have a latex allergy, but if I am not exposed to the core because of a protective covering, I am not affected. Obviously, ultimately the risk is mine to assume, just wondering if you tested that? Thanks so much for your answer, neat products!

    Hi Kimber,

    To answer your question regarding whether it sheds, the answer is no. I've had one on my desk for months and no shedding has occurred. However, the pieces are made of natural, hand flocked rubber - my little research so far doesn't clarify whether that is a problem for those with a latex allergy. You would likely know best if you have an allergy, but if this is indeed something you're allergic to, I would be cautious.
