Our toys are made in China. We work closely with several large factories and periodically visit manufacturers. It is very important to us to know that the standards of quality and labor safety are in line with the world’s highest standards.

Does your product contain phthalates?

No, our toys do not contain phthalates or any other toxic substances dangerous for a child.

How are your toys tested?

When we start work on a new toy, we always think about making the toy useful, educational and of course, safe. To achieve this, we start at the development stage and think over all the design features associated with it. Then, before launching into production, the toy is tested in an independent laboratory, where it is comprehensively checked to be completely safe for the child.

What does the CE marking mean?

This mark means that the product complies with basic requirements such as health, safety, function, environment protection standards and indicates compliance with prescribed control procedure. We always monitor the latest updates in safety and security requirements as they are introduced.

How do I know that your toys are safe for my child?

The safety of the child is one of the basic principles on which our work on any toy is based. Our toys, before they go on sale, are shipped and successfully pass certification to European (EN 71), The USA (ASTM), Australian (AS) and New Zealand (NZS8124) quality standards.

EN71 is a set of European Product Safety standard that applies to all toys sold in the European Union. EN 71, is broken down into Parts: Part 1 – Mechanical & Physical Properties of Toys, Part 2 – Flammability of Toys, Part 3 – Migration of Certain Elements.

Any object that fits in the tube is considered a small part and must have a label on its packaging indicating it is a choking hazard for small children.
