Safety Standards


Babies are fond of gnawing on things. My own children did this all the time, so it’s important to provide them with only the best!

Our wooden animals are made from organic wool felt, not blended. Because they are embroidered, there are no hard components that could present a choking hazard. So they’re suitable for all ages. But please keep a safe eye open and consider placing them out of reach before leaving a zooModern friend with a small baby.

We are a family-owned and sustainably managed maker, which produces natural, high quality, and safe wooden toys made to officially certified standards. In product development, we are guided by the principles of Waldorf Education and other educational approaches, such as Montessori. Our naked wood is printed using infant-safe ink and meets all ASTM Child Safety Standards. In compliance with the CPSIA, we use certified lead-free snap components on our doll clothes, aka capes.

Our CPSC Registration Number: 040444-122021

Our first responsibility is to your child — and we take that responsibility VERY seriously. As part of our quest for promoting safe toys, we’ve compiled the following information to help you with the proper assurances that we are taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of your child.
