Our Commitment to Safety
RE: Safety and CPSIA Compliance
Since 1985, ThinkFun has been developing games that ignite the minds of both children and adults alike. One of the core ingredients in creating ThinkFun games has always been to make sure that they are not only fun, but that they are safe to play with. We want to personally assure you that we have and will continue to take the necessary precautions so that our products meet the highest safety and quality standards.
In August of 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) went into effect putting forth a number of changes to consumer product safety laws. One of the new CPSIA requirements is to reduce the amounts of lead in children's products. As of February 10, 2009, the total lead content in children's products cannot be greater than 600 parts per million (ppm) and by August 14th, 2009 the allowable limit must be at 300 ppm or lower. Furthermore, by August 14th, 2009 lead containing paint must be reduced to 90 ppm.
ThinkFun has always used certified independent testing labs to test products and ensure their safety prior to introduction into the marketplace. We want to reassure you that our products are in compliance with the new CPSIA regulations. All products found in the ThinkFun 2009 catalog have been tested by an accredited laboratory and meet or exceed requirements regarding unsafe substances including those which will go into effect in August.
In addition, the CPSIA has mandated that Certificates of Conformity (COCs) be made accessible for any products manufactured on or after November 12th, 2008. ThinkFun has COCs per product available upon request.
As a practice, ThinkFun has always been cautious and meticulous regarding how products are made and what materials they are made with. Extra measures will be taken to understand and follow all parts of the new law as it evolves and relates to our products. We never want consumers to have to think twice about whether or not a ThinkFun product is safe!
