Toy Safety

What am I paying for?

It's a common question and one that I'd like to discuss openly with our customers, as I believe it's important to know what you're paying for no matter what the price tag says.

If you're at all familiar with our products, you'll already know that they are unique and educational, but they are so much more than just that! All of our toys are lovingly handmade using the best quality materials available. Some of our suppliers are companies that have been making toys for children all over Europe for decades!

You may now be starting to understand why we were so eager and excited to be able to offer the same range to children in Australia.
There are so many toys available on the market today that have been mass-produced in factories (mostly in China) using not only some of the cheapest materials available but also some of the most toxic and dangerous.

We're all about educating our customers and making them ask the simplest of questions 'Is this safe for my child to play with?'

It's not an easy task, but we are constantly driven by our passion to provide Australian families with a quality and safe, playtime alternative that they can be confident will last for years to come. I know that many of you would agree that to be able to keep a toy that you have loved and played with when you were little and pass it onto to your child, is something that you can both treasure.

Our goal is to help put an end to the mass-produced plastic toy products that are constantly being thrown away into landfill. Did you know that the most common plastic used for children's toys is PVC? PVC doesn't readily degrade and if or when it does, it releases a number of toxic materials which is why environmental organisations are trying to put an end to it's production and use.

We understand that we will never be able to completely rid the market of the largely cheaper, readily available product alternatives but we strongly believe that by providing more quality, sustainable options people will start to become more aware of what they are actually purchasing and therefore make a more educated choice. You should never stop asking the important questions like 'Is it safe?' 'Where was it made?'

Amy.
