Safety warnings ⚠️
Mientje Frobel gives the safety of articles the highest priority. Below is a comprehensive overview of articles and related regulations. None of our products are intended as toys and should not be used as such.
Other pendants are also intended for decoration and should always be hung out of reach of children. Use in any other way than as a hanger/decoration is entirely at your own responsibility.
Punnikwoorden are meant for decoration and should always be hung out of reach of children. Use other than as a pendant/decoration is entirely on your own responsibility. Punnikwoorden contain strong clamping material which can be dangerous for small children due to incorrect use.
Felt hangers are intended for decoration and should always be hung out of reach of children. Use in any other way is entirely at your own responsibility. Felt slings contain long cords that do not give out and can be dangerous for small children.
Hairbands should always be worn under supervision. A child can become entangled in the multi-stretch strap. Take off the hairband while playing (unsupervised) and while sleeping.
Hairpins are made of metal and can be sharp when a child begins to move around with them. Never leave a hairpin in while sleeping and if the child regularly pulls the hairpin out of the hair, it is wise to choose a different kind of hair accessory for the time being.
Do not let children wear chains unsupervised (e.g. to school or shelter). Necklaces are not suitable and are not meant to sleep with. Necklaces are also meant as an accessory and not as toys.
Brooches contain a brooch pin and should always be pinned by an adult. If the child regularly pulls the brooch, it is wise not to use the accessory until the child is old enough to handle it.
Every child is different, so make a good assessment of whether or not the child can handle the product. Age is only an indication. A younger child may be better able to handle a certain product than an older child.
It is the responsibility of the end user(s) to observe and pursue the safety requirements. Acceptance of the general terms and conditions confirms that knowledge of these regulations has been taken into account.
For each article to which the regulations apply, a printed copy is enclosed, you always give the article as a gift, so that the recipient also has it in his/her possession.
Safety warnings teat strings.
A dummy cord is not a toy. Never let the baby play or sleep unguarded with a lanyard.
A lanyard is subject to wear and tear due to friction and movement of the parts: therefore, check regularly that all parts are still securely fastened. When teat cords come into contact with (a lot of) saliva and/or water/moisture, the materials can lose their strength and/or break down (more quickly). Teat cords are also not meant to be put in the mouth. Using a teat cord is always on your own responsibility. Mientje Fröbel is not liable for any damage caused by the use of a teat cord.
Never let the baby sleep with the bead ring and only use it under supervision.
A bead ring is subject to wear and tear due to friction and movement of the parts: therefore check regularly that all parts are still securely attached. You can do this by pulling on it and assessing the cord between the beads. When beads come into contact with (a lot of) saliva due to drool and/or water/moisture, the materials can lose their strength and/or break down (faster). Bead rings are not meant to be put in the mouth.
Above mentioned articles are utensils. Materials wear out due to use and, depending on the frequency of use and the way in which the articles are used, a limited shelf life is associated with these articles. If the articles are worn through use and no longer used firmly, they will not be able to be stored in the mouth.
Teat strings can be a bit stiff / tight in the beginning. By use, the whole becomes a bit looser, therefore some margin has been taken into account so that the cord does not become too loose.
Rinse bead rings, teat cords and teething rings and if necessary soak them in water (use a detergent and rinse thoroughly). Do not rub the crochet work and let it air dry. Do this only when cleaning is really necessary. The items can NOT be washed in the washing machine.
Boxmobiles and box hangers are meant for decoration and to look at, never let a child play with them. Make sure that a playpen mobile is always hung at a height that is out of the child's reach to prevent it from falling.
