Child Safety

When donating items such as slippers, toys, etc.to a shelter, one of our concerns is the safety of children.

In the interest of child safety, please do not attach small items that can possibly be removed and become a potential choking hazard to items made for children under the age of 12. This includes, but is not limited to: buttons, bows, charms of any kind, zipper pulls, or metal jewelry or decorations.  Please make sure that any sort of decoration which is sewn onto an item you donate is securely sewn or otherwise attached.  This includes, but is not limited to, iron-on decorations of any sort.

Due to new and stringent rules from the CPSIA, we must be sure that all supplies used to make slippers for children under 12 fall within their guidelines.

Thank you for helping  keep children safe.
