It's important to be educated on toy safety standards. Below is some information that will help you know what to look for when selecting safe toys for your little ones. Or stop by our store and let us help you in person.
U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission
Specific toy safety regulations enforced by the CPSC include requirements and test criteria for:
The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
European Safety Standards Commission (CE)
A division of European Consumer Affairs, the European Safety Standards Commission develops legislative and other actions to promote the interests, health and safety of consumers on an internal and international level. The Commission also promotes consumer policy and high consumer safety standards in international forums and in relation with third countries. Toys that meet these requirements bear the European Community (CE) conformity marking.
