We were just looking for a nice wooden toy for Madeleine to play with, but when we brought it home we noticed it is:

  • ISO 9001 Certified (quality management systems)
  • ISO 14001 Certified (environmental management standards)
  • OHSAS/TIS 18001 Certified (occupational health and safety management systems)
  • ASTM F963-96a Conformant (toy safety standard)
  • Made of replenishable preservative-free rubberwood.
  • Packaged in fully-recyclable materials.
That's not bad for $14.95.  The toy was made in Thailand (alas, not locally) by PlanToys.  They apparently also meet SA 8000 (social accountability standard for ethical workplace conditions) and E-Zero (low formaldehyde) standards, although these weren't mentioned on our box.

Oh, and Maddy thinks it's pretty fun to play with, too.
