    How are your toys tested for safety?

    No issue is more important to us than the safety of our products and the kids who enjoy them. At SmartLab, we put our toys and art materials through an exhaustive protocol of testing to ensure they are safe. Each component is subjected to rigorous safety testing at every phase of development and production, well before mass production begins.

    We use independent testing labs to meet ASTM standards for child safety. These standards are generally considered the most thorough in the world, and are recognized by the toy industry and government agencies globally. While testing in the U.S. evolves, and may be different from state to state, SmartLab considers it mandatory to guarantee the safety of the children who use our products every day.
