Product Safety

Safety comes first. It’s that simple. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is the entity charged with setting regulations for the safety of products in the marketplace. In 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) was enacted to raise the safety standards for children’s products. The Act requires that products intended to be used by children (a) comply with all applicable children's product safety rules, (b) are tested for compliance by a CPSC-accepted laboratory, (c) have a written Children's Product Certificate (issued by the manufacturer or importer) that provides evidence of the product's compliance, and (d) have permanent tracking information affixed to the products and their packaging. It is our responsibility as a company to see that these measures are in place.

Becker’s has a longstanding commitment to safety policies that meet or exceed industry and government standards in the interest of the health and safety of children and the peace of mind for those who care for them. We encourage you to call us if you have any questions about our safety policies.

Other Safety Information for Our Customers


PlayLearn Sensory Motion Tubes

Sensory Motion Tubes, item #: SLTMX3OSD, the manufacturer confirmed the product passed all safety tests. However, we have now been informed that, although the manufacturer’s data and label state that the product is safe for children Age 3+, they actually tested only for children Age 8+.  We have also been informed of an incident of product breakage and possible leaking of potentially toxic substance. Although this is just a possible safety issue, it is unacceptable to Becker’s.  To learn more, click here.
