Above all else, we want to provide our clients with safe high quality custom plush toys and custom plush mascots. So the safety of all our custom made plush toys is paramount and we achieve it in an ethical and professional manner. This means that we work with only two reputable factories that provide clean working environments for their workers and have third party inspection companies, such as www.amfori.org, perform audits on equipment and labour. CanaBears guarantees that our two partnered factories used for designing and mass production our custom plush toys are clean and safe for all concerned.
And at our factories, we use no hazardous parts or paints and each plush toy is stitched to ensure security and the materials we source out and use, will meet and/or exceed material flammability testing. And upon completion of mass production, we pass each and every custom plush toy and custom plush mascot through a metal detector before packing and shipping.
As far as labelling of your custom plush toys for Canadian distribution, it’s imperative that at least one sew in label is affixed to your plush toy that states country of origin. Furthermore, we add our importer name and details about the materials and intended age group. If you plan on Canadian distribution only, then our Canadian sew in label will meet or exceed Health Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, as well the Competition Bureau and Canada Border Services Agency.
