Toys for babies – My review of Munchkin Five Sea Squirts (ordered from iHerb):
These “Five Sea Squirts” bath toys has nice vibrant colors, and they are sized just perfectly. Not too small or big. Item description says that they are for 9+ months, but our baby has enjoyed company of these since 2+ months. The animals are the following: turtle, dolphin, crab, octopus and pelican. All the animals floats and squirts water. Best one is the crab. :)
One of the iHerb reviewers was worried about the safety of these toys. I am also interest about the safety. The Munchkin company says the following on their webpage:
For more than 15 years, Munchkin has been a trusted brand that retailers and parents have depended on with confidence, and we work hard to maintain that trust. The safety and well-being of our consumers is our top priority. All of our products are independently tested and meet or exceed the safety standards for our industry as established by both the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International. We are constantly in touch with these national safety organizations to ensure we are up-to-date with clear scientific findings and any changes in regulations. In addition, follow-up tests are conducted on all of our products at periodic intervals after they launch to ensure each product’s continued safety.
Toys that the other reviewer gotten was from 2005. Toys I received are from 2008. Yes, there are no CE marking on the bottom of the toys. Although if it would says CE and made from China, would that make you trust them more? I didn’t save the package, maybe it had more info about the toys. I’m gonna trust the company with their statement. Our toys didn’t have any funny smell (other than the regular rubber smell, that all the new toys have), and we washed the toys carefully before putting them to use.
Anyways, the toys are great and easy to recommend. Easily one of my iHerb favorites for 2014.
PS. These bath toys are also available on Amazon. They have higher price over there.
