"Fortunately, because of economic conditions around the world, there were a lot of factories available," says Kamar, 59. "But E.T.
is not an easy item to produce. It's handmade, and people have to be trained how to do it." The doll, which is stuffed with fiber
and pulverized walnut shells (for weight and because they are semidigestible if a child swallows some), has, according to
the hyperbolic Kamar, "wiped out the stockpile of walnut shells in the Far East. And we have also cornered the vinyl market."
Stuffed Toys From Ecoleeko
"Walnut shells crushed are a nontoxic biodegradable material. They are naturally nonabsorbent, mold resistant and dust free.
The shells are usually used for other applications but they work well as a beanbag filler natural alternative to the petroleum based plastic
pellets usually used in childrens toys.
I use walnut shells only in the Doll legs and arms...
Disclaimer**Parents with Children who have any nut allergies should be aware there are shells used in the legs and arms. Please contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org to make any doll with no walnut shells for your child using only kapok fiber. Please contact me if this should affect your
child in any way."
Woof Poof and the Enviroment
Woof & Poof is always conscious of being a good steward of our limited resources and of our environment. In that effort, we have
been working with a local walnut processor, ECO-SHELL, to provide a more environmentally friendly filler for many Woof & Poof
products. Woof & Poof is proud to use biodegradable walnut shells in our stuffing process.
"Collectible teddy bears are created using quality German and English mohair and glass eyes. Mohair comes in different colors, fur types
(curly or straight), fur lengths and density (sparse to dense). The eyes also come in a variety of sizes and colors. These bears are not
toys. They are constructed from materials that may be hazardous to small children if handled incorrectly. The bears are stuffed with
polyfil, zinc coated steel shot and crushed walnut shells. Bear noses are hand sewn using a pearl cotton thread and the fur is
trimmed around the face to bring the bear to life. All bears are fully jointed in the arms, legs, and neck so they can be posed naturally."

DIY Wooden blocks (article)
Now you’re going to finish your blocks. I used walnut oil> because it’s a good wood finisher that’s also baby safe. You know your baby’s going to put these in his or her mouth, so you want to be sure that whatever finish you use isn’t going to hurt them. Since walnut oil is actually meant to be used for cooking, have no fear. To finish your blocks, lay out a couple sheets of paper towels and pour a little bit of oil in a cup. While wearing your gloves, dip your old rag in the oil and rub each piece of wood until it is completely covered. Lay them out like so to dry (which actually only takes a few minutes).

and inspect each piece of wood throughout the various stages of production helps to insure that the finished whistle will play for
many years with relatively low maintenance."

Classic Violin Varnish
For violin varnish, linseed oil and walnut oil are most often used in combination with resins. The oil is prepared
by cooking or by exposing to air and sunlight. The resin is typically available as a solid, and is then "run" by cooking or
literally melting it in a pot over heat without solvents. The thickened oil and prepared resin are then cooked together
and thinned with turpentine into a brushable varnish."
