MerryMakers products meet or exceed the safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), put forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for makers of children’s games and toys. MOST of our products are rated Safe for All Ages under the CPSIA. Those that are not safe for all ages are safe for ages 3 and up. The small parts/choking hazard warning appears on the web page, catalog page, sewn-in label and hangtag for those items. Note: On all products, the hangtag must be removed before presenting to children under age 3.
Our testing procedures follow strict guidelines. Before shipment, randomly selected dolls are tested by a CPSC accredited third-party laboratory in accordance with US and Canadian safety standards, ASTM F963-07, 16 CFR 1303 and Canadian Hazardous Products Act. All dolls are tested for flammability, small parts, heavy metals and general cleanliness. All plastic eyes and other components are lock-washered on. We keep the safety reports on file and would be happy to share them with you if questions arise.
We have steady, long-term relationships with our vendors and inspect our factories regularly. Our vendors are committed to providing safe working conditions for their employees, with no child or prison labor used, and production workers are paid a fair wage. We do not allow any of our production to be sub-contracted out.
Our goal is to supply our customers with high-quality, safe, imaginative, well-priced product for children. If any questions come up regarding the safety or age-appropriateness of any of our dolls, please give us a call at 888-989-0454.
