Safety First

Pockets of Learning products are tested by an international agency, and safety certified for children of all ages. Our company insists on testing all of our toys to be "SAFE FOR ALL AGES," from birth on up. Therefore, Recommended Ages on our website refer only to the appropriate age for PLAY value. Each product, however, has been safety tested for all ages.

By contrast, many manufacturers have tested and labeled their products only "Age 3 and up." By specifying Age 3 and up, those manufacturers are not required to meet certain standards, such as standards relating to choking hazards.

We recognize there is no feasible way for parents to segregate toys from younger siblings, once the toys are in the home. We feel that this is particularly true with soft cloth toys, which have special appeal to the under-3 year old.
