Toy Safety

At Hyvä Play, we take the safety of toys seriously. So we curate toys that have been tested and approved in compliance with certain safety standards:

European Union Toy Safety Directive EN71 specifies safety requirements for toys which includes physical and mechanical properties, flammability, chemical properties. Before any toys are CE marked, the toys has to be safety tested as accordance to ISO EN-71 or equivalent. 

ASTM International, one of the largest voluntary standards developing organizations in the world, develops and publishes international voluntary consensus standards for materials, products, systems and services.

All toys made outside of United States and sold in the United States must meet the safety requirements of ASTM F963, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety, as part of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA).

European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) manages the technical, scientific and administrative aspects of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation.

REACH regulates the production and use of chemical substances, to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals.

Many of our toys are awarded internationally, and have received recognition of ecological, social, educational or quality certifications.

CE marking is a certification mark that indicates conformity with health, safety and environmental protection legislations. CE marked products are entitled to move freely within the European Economic Area.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization that sets standards for responsible forest management.

FSC certification seal confirms that the wood for wooden products does not come from exploitative production; signifying sustainability.
