Safety Tips

Our idea to publish these tips comes out as an effort to answer a main and everlasting question: how to choose what to buy for our children?

In our status of experts involved for many years with studying and interpreting the out coming licensing laws, we sometimes left aside to translate our increasingly elaborate knowledge, into a language easy to understand also for non insiders: the great majority, actually everyone of us when becomes a consumer.

This section wants to be an easily managed consultation instrument for everyone who wants to choose a safe toy and to know how important is to pay attention to several safety aspects that can avoid regrettable accidents, like for example in public playgrounds where often we take our children.

We hope, with this, to give a contribution to increase also your awareness of how safety is a main part of every product.
