As a result of recent state and Federal legislative activity focused on children’s products, we felt we should document our product quality and safety commitment to you.
We want to assure all of our retail store partners, as well as the consumers that use our products, that we design and manufacture all of our products to meet or exceed all applicable U.S. government and state safety regulations, as well as applicable U.S. “voluntary” standards and international safety regulations and standards.
These safety regulations in the U.S. include the Consumer Products Safety Act and the Federal Hazardous Substances Act which specify safety requirements for consumer products, especially those used by children. Also included is the new Federal law known as the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act just recently signed into law.
Other industry standards include a number of international standards apply to our product in Canada, Europe and other regions.
Included in these standards are requirements and restrictions such as those for lead and other heavy metals in surface decorations and materials, the use of plastics that do not contain BPA or certain phthalates, and requirements for product design and construction to prevent safety hazards during use of the products.
During product development and throughout the manufacturing process, we continually test our products for compliance with these regulations and standards, utilizing both our internal testing resources as well as independent CPSC-certified testing laboratories.
We take very seriously our responsibility and our commitment to protect children from harm when using or playing with our products.
