Simply faBOWlous® is CPSIA Compliant
We care about the safety of all children, and that is why, even though Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) does not currently require testing of certain products, that by nature, will never exceed certain lead content limits, we have done the testing anyway. We want you to rest assured that our products are safe for your child.
We have received many questions and comments from our buyers & our customers regarding the CPSIA, and we hope that this webpage is able to answer your questions regarding our proucts. We have tested all of our items and they are compliant with CPSIA regulations.
