Where are OUCHLESS™ products made?
As a proud American and a mother of three, I am equally concerned with products made in China due to the negative news and manufacturing problems there. Unfortunately, products made overseas are nearly impossible to avoid these days.
I desperately wanted to produce my toys here in the U.S., so I contacted over 50 silicone manufacturers. But what I found astounded me:
Most did not have the tooling or experience to make my products;
Of the few manufacturers who did have the ability to make my toys, the molds, and the material itself, were made in China anyway. Then it was all shipped here;
Of the 2 manufacturers I found who could make everything here, my customers would have to pay more than $100 for the blocks (for example) just for me to break even. I certainly wouldn't pay $100 for a set of baby blocks, and I know you wouldn't either.
So...I wanted to let you know that I have personally traveled to China to meet my manufacturers, and visited with their families. The food-grade silicone used in the Ouchless Baby Toys™ is the same material in both commercial and personal cooking and bakeware products. You likely have those same products in your kitchen right now. The silicone is also tested and certified to meet FDA food-grade standards, and is lead-free, BPA-free, PVC-free, cadmium-free, phthalate-free, latex-free, and free of heavy metals. Ouchless Baby Products™ are also safety-certified for the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
In addition to all that, each batch of Ouchless Baby Products™ are inspected THREE times:
By independent inspectors in China before shipment.
By me when they arrive in the U.S.
By me again before I send them to you.
I want you to feel comfortable knowing that I have gone above and beyond to make The OUCHLESS Toys™ as safe as possible for your family.
