Ruff-Tex toys by Hugglehounds are constructed with thick-walled latex and have excellent tear-resistance and tensile strength. They are super cute, bounceable, stretch-able, squeezable, ball-like creatures made from all-natural materials. All Ruff-Tex toys are hand-painted with paints that meet child safety standards. Plus, we love that we know the people behind the toys. We love the toys and we love that Hugglehounds is definitely a heart-driven company that we love supporting.
