Now more than ever, we're setting safety first. Some of the steps we're taking are already part of our daily operations. It's a huge part of our company's values- giving our community clean and safe toys to play with.
A study out this week, by the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA finds that the virus can survive on hard surfaces such as plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours and on cardboard for up to 24 hours. As extra caution, we’ve isolated each toy box for a week prior to opening it. We’ll also do so after thoroughly cleaning the toys (methods explained in the section below).
First, all of our team has been keeping a high standard of hand hygiene washing hands with antibacterial soap and water frequently, using sanitizing wipes often, and have no symptoms of an illness, from the common cold to the flu. Also- while cleaning the toys we’ve used gloves and face masks and disposable cleaning supplies such as scrubs, sponge and paper towels.
OUR SANITATION ENVIRONMENT
Each toy that can be washed and cleaned with water and soap is hand washed and left to dry on disposable changing pads. Toys that will not tolerate water will be first wiped with Clorox and then with a wet clean paper towel as a first step. We remain committed to using chemical-free cleaning supply, but in light of the CDC instructions, we’re using Clorox for our first line of sanitation.After the first round of sanitation, we continue to our second round using our baby safe and guidelines meeting all US safety standards with cleaning supplies that are Hypoallergenic, Plant & mineral-based, Sustainable, Non-GMO, Toxin-free, Free of harmful preservatives, Biodegradable, Not tested on animals
