TESTING AND AUDITS
Classic toys such as wooden push-along trolleys, building blocks, ride-on toys, board games, plush toys and teddies might seem straightforward, at a glance – but there can be very serious hidden risks if quality is not thoroughly tested.
All goods must be safe for children to use, as the primary concern; while also adhering to standards that protect brand reputation within a competitive market, by reducing the likelihood of recalls, non-compliance and consumer complaints.

Our juvenile product testing covers items such as strollers, infant walkers, children’s furniture, play yards, cradles and bikes, while we also support the industry of premiums and promotional goods.
