As parents, our primary concern for our children is to keep them safe. As they grow and begin to play with toys…including pots, pans and plastic food storage containers…the need to be ever watchful increases. How do you know if a child’s toy is “safe”? Who develops the criteria making toys safe? ASTM International creates standards for which all toys sold in the U.S. must comply. These standards, along with regulations from the CPSA (Consumer Product Safety Commission) are all created to keep children’s toys safe. The safety of Sophia’s® 18″ doll products is also our primary concern. When you purchase Sophia’s® brand doll merchandise, you know that each product has been manufactured with components that have been certified and safety tested to meet the safety requirements for children’s toys. The fabrics used in our collection of 18in and 15″ doll clothing have all been tested, as have our doll accessories and furniture. Sophia’s® takes this safety concern just a bit further. We design many of our doll clothes with hook and loop closures with faux button details. This enables your child to dress and undress their dolls without actually having to button and unbutton, reducing the potential for buttons to come loose. Warning labels are clearly visible on our packaging as is the appropriate age for use of our products. Our furniture has been designed with recessed hardware and some doll furniture pieces require no assembly at all. For those of you who enjoy creating children’s clothing and/or doll clothing, we have a selection of doll sized sewing supplies available that are used in many of the doll clothes we manufacture; all tested and compliant with the CPSIA guidelines. Knowing that safety is our priority, making your purchase of Sophia’s® brand doll products can be done with confidence and peace of mind.
