Safe for children of 3 years and older

Our instruments are designed and made to be safe for use by players aged 3 and older, and we have carried out extensive testing of all the materials used to ensure they are safe and non-toxic.

Please note that our instruments are not toys and should not be used with children under the age of 3 because of the risk of small parts becoming loose and potentially presenting a choking hazard. When using instruments with young players aged 3 to 5, please always follow our Good Practice Guide (click here to download).


Some History

Until April 2018 we had been supplying musical instruments and kits to all age groups, including the under 3s. However, following a report in April 2018 of a young child swallowing a seed from one of our shakers, we carried out a full safety review of all our instruments for younger players and, following advice from Trading Standards, recalled the Owl Sound and Musical Baby Bonding Kit and changed the age rating for all instruments to “3 Years or over”.
