If you have recently purchased a HABA soft toy you may have noticed that the GS Symbol of the testing organisation TÜV Rheinland LGA Products GmbH has been covered. The reason for this is that at the end of 2012 we made the decision to dispense using the GS Symbol on fabric toys as the costs involved have rocketed. The requirements for the test of textile materials were changed, but in our opinion these changes had no improvement effect on the safety of the toys.
We assure you that nothing has changed in our quality standards, which far exceed the statutorily and standardised requirements. Naturally, we will continue to have the materials we use and the finished toys tested by neutral, qualified and experienced testing institutes to have the safety of the products verified. Should new requirements for children's safety become known we will, of course, adapt our testing standard appropriately. We ask for your understanding and look forward to your continued support.
