Do you want to have a safe product?

I've collaborated with a CPSC-accepted lab so you'll have...

  • Legally compliant designs ready for sale. ($800-$2000 value)
  • First-Party (Self) Testing Information and Record Sheet ($15 value)
  • Written Testing Plan Template ($25 value)
  • Toy Test Fixtures (free if chosen) ($20 value)
  • Done-for-you Certificate of Compliance ($50 if chosen). ($105 value)

 

If you make a toy, teether, or pacifier leash intended for children under 3y, or other child care item for children under 3y, this is the bundle for you.

While others are spending time researching government websites about the regulations, getting quotes for a single design for $200-$600, and hoping that they've captured all of the requirements for their toys, you could have multiple designs, the process laid out in your hand, and peace of mind for a fraction of that.

  • Toys, Teethers, and Pacifier Leashes intended for children under 3y require Small Parts (16 CFR Part 1501) testing at a lab.
  • Toys and Teethers for children under 12y requires compliance to ASTM F963-17, but as a registered Small Batch Manufacturer with the CPSC, you can feasibly do this on your own following the ASTM F963-17 publication (not included).

You'll have safe toys with this bundle if:

  • You have toys you are hoping to get out to the world.
  • Your components have already had testing for lead, phthalates, and other heavy elements as applicable (ask your supplier!).
  • You are willing to do the ASTM F963-17 testing at home (as applicable)

You'll need:

  • Toys, Teethers, and/or Pacifier Leashes of course
  • 1-3 Identical samples of each design (packaging not needed)
  • Completed Electronic Product Testing Request Form

In this bundle, you'll receive:

  • An electronic test request form for testing,
  • Testing at an ISO-accredited, CPSC-accepted lab in the USA,
  • Written Testing Plan template ($25 value),
  • Toy Test Fixtures (free if chosen; $20 value), and
  • Completed Children's Product Certificate ($50 if chosen; $105 value).

With this bundle, you'll have legally compliant toy or leash designs to sell and all you have to do is send me your products, and wait for your results.

(It is highly encouraged to bubble wrap wood or other potentially fragile components)

What makes a "style"?

When looking at your styles, we are looking at differences in the type of materials, seams, and overall design.  For example:

Toys

  1. In The Hoop stuffed rabbit (long ears) and safety eyes (1 sample)
  2. In The Hoop stuffed giraffe (short ears & ossicones) and safety eyes (1 sample)
  3. Sewn doll with short hair and safety eyes (1 sample)
  4. Wood stacking rainbow set (3 samples)
  5. Wood stacking bowl set (3 samples)
  6. Necklace

Teethers

When looking at your designs, we are looking at differences in design and differences in beads' shapes, sizes, and material.  For example:

  1. Silicone teether star with silicone round beads
  2. Teether ring w/(16)15mm silicone round beads
  3. Teether ring w/wood coffee cup pendant, (13)15mm silicone round beads, (2) silicone specialty beads
  4. Teether ring w/(2) wood rings, (8)15mm silicone round beads, (3)19mm silicone round beads, (2) wood beehive beads
  5. Wood teething ring with fabric bunny ears

Pacifier Leashes

When looking at your designs, we are looking at differences in the type of clip (metal, plastic, wood, silicone, etc.), differences in cording, differences in the end knot (Double Knot, Looped End Knot, etc.), and differences in beads' shapes, sizes, and material.  For example:

  1. (5) 15mm silicone round beads, (1) 9mm wood bead, stainless steel clip, paracord cording, standard double knot after wood bead
  2. (5) 15mm silicone round beads, stainless steel clip, paracord cording, standard double knot after last bead
  3. (5) 15mm silicone round beads, stainless steel clip, paracord cording, looped knot on last bead
  4. (4) 15mm silicone round beads, (1) wood hex bead, stainless steel clip, paracord cording, looped knot on last bead
  5. (4) 15mm silicone round beads, (2) silicone lentil beads, (1) wood beehive bead, stainless steel clip, paracording cord, looped knot on last bead.

 

Feel free to send photos to me at Hello@TheMakersResourceShop.com or m.me/TheMakersResourceShop on Facebook if you need additional help deciding on how many styles you have.

Turn Around Time:
Once I receive samples, budget for up to 4 weeks for reports.

NOTHING WILL BE SENT TO THE LAB UNTIL January 3, 2022.

Testing Request Form:

  • Your application is 100% private.  Please fill out every section honestly and to the best of your ability.
  • You are the manufacturer of anything you personally create.
  • Country of Origin is where you put the finished toys together.
  • Your style numbers can be anything as long as they indicate the different styles (ex. 001, 002, 003, PC-001, PC-002, T001, T002, etc.).
  • Age grading is your intended age range (example: 0+/Infant)
  • End Use is "Toy"

 

Add On

A Children's Product Certificate is your document that says "I comply!".

To have this document in your records is the end-game for product safety compliance because it shows how you are complying with whatever regulations you are bound by.

The problem is that this document can be confusing. It involves yet more research into the regulations to find the codes you have to follow and the citations for any exemptions you might be allowed. To top it off, if you have any supplier statements or lab reports to indicate, that just adds more work to your plate.

Leave the creating of this document to me and save yourself the time and headache.

You'll receive a Childen's Product Certificate for one product and instructions to maintain the document for the rest of your business' lifespan. ($105 value)
