Wooden clutching toys are essential for the hands of babies. They trigger the grasp reflex and promote the development process to targeted grabbing. During this process, a lot of sensory impressions will be mediated. They help babies to discover their environment.
Heimess baby accessories and toys have been “Made in Germany” for over 50 years. High quality standards and natural materials ensure the fabrication of a quality product. Heimess toys are to a large extent made by hand. Only local wood such as beech, sycamore and walnut are used.
Benefits of wood
Wood, as a natural product itself, has an antibacterial effect and is therefore ideal even for children with allergies and less efficient immune systems. Babies can safely put Heimess toys in their mouths without harm.
Non-toxic paints and dyes
Heimess uses water based paints and dyes which are completely non-toxic and harmless for babies. Just as with any other toy, Heimess products get worn too – but loss of color does not diminish the safety.
Heimess baby accessories and toys are tested both internally and externally (GS mark for Tested Safety) for resilience and safety. Heimess toys meet strict European safety norms: EN71-1 (2005) amd A4 (2007) for toys amd EN12586 (2007) for babies' chains. These quality toys also fulfill the requirements of the Canadian toys act.
