In just a couple of months it will be time for spring! Here at Embroider Buddy®, we’re already looking forward to Easter. Buddy Bunny and Lambton Lamb are ready for their busy season! We also have Lambton Lamb Blankeys in stock, in both our regular and ‘wee’ size.
It’s always important to be mindful of toy safety especially during the holidays or gift-giving occasion when we’re focused on many things at once. Plush toys have been gifted, loved and cherished by children for generations. But there still aren’t international standards for toy safety.
We’ve developed a four-point checklist that you can use to ensure every plush product is safe for children.
- Look for seams that are secure. No stuffing should be exposed. Loose stuffing is a child hazard if swallowed.
- Ensure the eyes and nose are secure. (By the way, our Embroider Buddy® eyes and noses are all embroidered).
- Make sure there are no loose threads or strings.
- Toys should be washable (Embroider Buddy® skins and pods are machine washable and can both go in the washer and dryer).
