Safety & Quality

QUALITY

Early on we bought from a supplier in China that we weren't sure about. The products didn't seem like they'd hold up for long and on close inspection there wasn't as much care in the gluing and sewing as there should have been. So instead of selling them they went in the bin. We wouldn't put these things on our own kids so why would we sell them to someone else's?

This thought has governed a lot of our choices.

Most of our products come from Australia or the USA. Some items do come from China after carefully selecting our suppliers there. Some come from Europe; our bottles and dummies are made in Germany which is known for its high-quality manufacturing of baby products.

Ideally we would source all of our products from Australian makers, but there isn't much that is accessible here which is why we started Cradle of Misfits in the first place.

 

SAFETY

There are a lot of safety concerns when it comes to kids, thats why we choose our products carefully.

One thing we are particularly resolute about is Bisphenol-A (BPA) which is a chemical compound used in plastics and is associated with hazards in fetuses, infants and young children. It is band from use in baby bottles in the European union and Canada but not Australia, and we are adamant not to sell anything containing BPA.
