ALWAYS conduct a quality and safety check: try pulling out the eyes to confirm that it’s properly and securely installed.

 


Special note: Although most of the safety eyes, when properly installed are very securely fixed to the toy, however, toys with small parts are not suitable for very young children who put anything or everywhere into their mouths.
