Safety Standards & Policies
Product safety is extremely important to all of us at KimmyShop.com. We are committed to providing you and your family with safe toys and activities to enjoy for years to come.
Our commitment to safety means that we are vigilant about tracking product recalls, and will immediately remove recalled toys from our shelves. We also insist on compliance to US and International safety standards for lead, small parts, sharp edges, and other hazards. At Kimmyshop.com, we love children and babies, and combining a safe and secure shopping experience with the toys and characters you love is our number one priority.
In the event of a toy recall, Kimmyshop.com will remove the affected item from our shelves at once. We will also make the full recall information available on our website, including the reason for the recall, what to do with the item, and how to get a replacement, when warranted. Toys are recalled for a variety of reasons, including unsafe lead levels, choking hazards, sharp edges, or fire hazards. Toys that have been recalled should be removed from the reach of children right away. Recalls often come with their own return instructions. Depending on the scope and scale of the recall, consumers may be instructed to return parts or entire items to the manufacturer or the original retailer. KimmyShop.com's recall resource page will help you to determine how to repair or replace your toy.
KimmyShop.com also maintains an email notification policy for product recalls, so you will be informed of relevant recalls promptly.
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), mandates third party testing of all goods for children under the age of 12 and requires manufacturers to permanently label each item. The CPSIA was created in response to lead-tainted toys and pthalates in plastic baby bottles which were manufactured in China and sold in the United States. CPSIA testing includes screening for lead, small magnets, sharp parts, and Phthalates/PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). KimmyShop.com is careful to select only toys that meet or exceed these federally mandated standards.
