Safety & Care
Teething Toys & Sensory Rattles
IMPORTANT: Whilst all of our creations are handmade in accordance to the Australian Mandatory requirements using only the highest quality components, they do contain small parts. If the item was to become damaged it may become a choking hazard. As with any toy, never leave children under 36 months unattended.
Please inspect your item for any damage or defects before each use. Loose beads may pose as a choking hazard. If damaged please discard and do not use.
Our teething toys have been independently tested and certified to comply with AS/NZS ISO 8124.
IMPORTANT: All jewellery is designed for adults to wear only!
Never let baby wear or play with this Jewellery. These are NOT toys. Ages 3 yrs +
With changes made by the ACCC reclassifying all 'teething jewellery' as TEETHING TOYS it's now against MANDATORY safety standards for any retailer Australia wide to sell 'teething jewellery' unless they comply in full to the mandatory toy standards - which 99.9% of them on the market today WILL NOT due to the size restrictions.
Even made using the same BPA free certified food grade beads, strong nylon cord and breakaway clasps does NOT make them compliant.
We take safety very seriously at Bowerbird Creations and will always make sure the materials used are of the highest standards and safe in every aspect. But we will NOT be marketing as teething jewellery or implying any teething benefits to our ladies accessories. NOR will we ever post pictures of babies chewing on our necklaces. Our ladies accessories are not toys and must not be worn or used by children under the age of 3 years.
Again note: this applies to ALL retailers Australia-wide.
PLEASE NOTE: Our teething toys and Sensory Rattles always have and always will comply in full to the mandatory safety standards for teething toys - this change only affects Ladies Jewellery.
