It shows fire fighters driving and the detailing on the emergency vehicle, with a natural wood grain edge on the body and wheels. Handcrafted by skilled artisans in Sri Lanka from sustainably sourced rubber wood whilst non-toxic paints are used. Blemishes in the wood should be expected, these are part of the beauty of a natural wood product.

About Lanka Kade
Lanka Kade translates as \'the Sri Lankan shop\' and was set up in 1994 by husband and wife team Upul and Diane, with the aim of providing an outlet for items produced by small craft enterprises in Sri Lanka. Lanka Kade have developed a range of educational toys and gifts for young children utilising Diane\'s teaching and playwork background.
All Lanka Kade products are designed in the UK and then handmade by seven family based enterprises in Sri Lanka. Children are not involved at any stage of the production, and many products are made from rubberwood that has been sourced from exhausted rubber plantations that are replanted every 10 – 15 years.
When Lanka Kade products are shipped to the UK packing materials are either shredded paper or materials supplied by local retail outlets from their own deliveries. Lanka Kade products and packaging are all PVC free and the company strives to avoid the use of excessive packaging.
Lanka Kade (UK) Ltd have been a member of BAFTS (British Association of Fair Trade Shops) since 2001.
