We take toy safety very seriously at Kaskey Kids and want to update you on what the Consumer Product Safety Commission requirements are and to assure you that all of our toys are in compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.
In February 2009, new requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) take effect. Manufacturers, importers and retailers are expected to comply with the new Congressionally-mandated laws. Beginning February 10, 2009, children’s products cannot be sold if they contain more than 600 parts per million (ppm) total lead. Certain children’s products manufactured on or after February 10, 2009 cannot be sold if they contain more than 0.1% of certain specific phthalates or if they fail to meet new mandatory standards for toys.
We want you to know that since their introduction, all Kaskey Kids toys have been tested by independent testing labs for lead content, the presence of phthalates, small parts, sharp edges, toxic elements, flammability and have had extensive physical and mechanical testing. Each one of our toys meets and often exceeds the safety standards set forth by the Consumer Products Safety Commission, including those that will take place on August 14, 2009. We will continue to test our toys to ensure they stay compliant with the CPSIA. We will also to continue to maintain a strong relationship with our factory and the internationally accredited independent testing labs we use. As required by the CPSIA, we will also make available Certificates of Compliance on all of our toys manufactured on or after November 12, 2008. Currently, these are available upon request and on this website.
Thank you for your interest in our toys. Please feel free to contact us if we can help answer any safety related questions. Please be assured of our ongoing commitment to the safety of each of our toys.
