Edwards & Co Commitment to Child Safety and Product Quality

by Anna Dyer

The Importance of Child Safety 
As parents, there is nothing more important than the safety and well-being of your children. Children are special, delicate, and often unpredictable. That's why we spend an incredible amount of time considering everything that makes children unique – from little fingers and toes around moving parts to little mouths chewing fabrics. We also know that tired parents can be clumsy and forgetful, so ease of use, simplicity, and no maintenance are more important than a fancy feature that looks good on Instagram. 

Our Commitment to Safety 
Every Edwards & Co product is designed with the well-being of children as our top priority. It's one of the reasons why our products can take up to 24 months of safety and certification testing. With our decades of experience in developing baby products, you can rest assured that Edwards & Co products are among the best quality available in the world. 

Comprehensive Testing Procedures 

Durability and Strength 
In conjunction with our partners, we test all our products to internal standards that are often higher than local regulations. Most of our products are also tested by SGS and Intertek to verify our claims. 

Stability and Brake Testing 
All our prams are tested to meet regulatory tipping and brake standards. We always test our products to ensure they remain upright in difficult and potentially rare situations. 

 

Chemicals and Toxicity 
Most of our stroller fabrics are made and certified to OEKOTEX-100 level, the highest certification level available. This ensures our fabrics are free of 100 chemicals and toxins sometimes used in the manufacture of fabrics. Additionally, we test all our fabrics, plastics, and tubing of our strollers to EN71-3, a toxicity test for toys and children’s products. 

Fabric Quality 
We only use fabrics that pass our internal standard for quality. Our standard tests for quality include top standard results based on colour fastness from UV exposure, washing, saliva, urine, pilling, and snagging. 

External Laboratory Certifications 
Our products are certified and tested by SGS and Intertek. 

Temperature Testing 
We test our products to withstand various conditions, from extreme heat to extreme cold. 

Standards and Certifications 
Our products adhere to several standards and certifications, including: 

  • OEKOTEX-100 (fabrics) 
  • EN71-3 (fabrics, plastics, and metal) 
  • REACH (fabrics & plastics)
  • Regulation (EC) no. 1935/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council Overall Migration (specific food safe test for food storage and usage products such as the Snack Tray)
  • AS 2088:2013 and 2022 (strollers) 
  • EN1888:2018 (strollers) 
  • ECER44 (car seats) 
  • EN114 (carry cots) 

At Edwards & Co, our dedication to the safety and well-being of your children is reflected in our rigorous testing and high standards. Our products are designed to provide peace of mind and ensure the best quality for your family.
