What does the Swan label mean?

The Swan label is a Nordic environmental label. Swan-labeled plastic toys do not contain phthalates, which are suspected of being hormone-disrupting. They are not made of PVC and do not contain perfume. The Swan label also takes into account the environment during production and the extraction of raw materials. The Swan is used in all Nordic countries, i.e. Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland.

The Swan label stands for:

  • Stringent environmental requirements

  • Consideration for health

  • Good quality

  • Is there perfume in your toys?

  • No, dantoy does not use any perfume in our toys.

  • Can our child drink and eat from your kitchen toys?

  • Yes, dantoy only uses food-approved materials for our kitchen sets.

What does EN71 mean?

EN71 is a European standard that specifies requirements and test methods for the mechanical/physical properties and chemical tests of toys. For example, migration tests that, with the implementation of the new EU directive, will now include 17 metals instead of the eight that have been tested for so far.

This European standard applies to toys for children, as toys are considered to be any product or material that is designed or intended, whether wholly or in part, for children under 14 years of age to play with. All dantoy toys have undergone this test.

Why is the product CE marked?

All toys must have a CE mark, which shows consumers that the toy meets a number of requirements for health, safety, and the environment. These requirements are common throughout the EU.

The CE mark is the manufacturer's declaration that the toy complies with the requirements of the legislation. The CE mark is common to the European Economic Area and must be affixed to selected product groups, including toys, electrical products, and personal protective equipment.

Can your toys be recycled?

Yes, the materials we use in our production can be ground up and reused multiple times.

We recommend that the toys be delivered to a recycling station.

Our toys are mainly made of polyethylene PE and polypropylene PP.

How do you incorporate environmental and quality considerations into your toy production?

Dantoy is ISO 9001 and 14001 certified.

The ISO 9001 quality management system is a tool for defining processes, values, ongoing monitoring, and evaluation, so the organization has a recognized and fundamental management tool that ensures consistent quality.

ISO 14001 is an environmental management system. ISO 14001 requires companies to take responsibility for preventing pollution of the environment and to undertake ongoing environmental improvements.

Dantoy uses both management systems to ensure our high quality and environmental responsibility.

Are there plasticizers and PVC in your toys?

No, dantoy does not use PVC in our toys. Additionally, all our toys are free of phthalates (plasticizers).

Is there bisphenol A in your toys, like there was in some baby bottles?

No, dantoy does not use bisphenol A in our toys. The toys are mainly made of polyethylene PE and polypropylene PP.

Can your products be washed in the dishwasher?

Yes, but if there are labels on the product, we would recommend hand washing, as the plastic labels can come loose and the paper labels can crumble.

Where can I buy your toys?

Dantoy toys can be purchased from leading toy retailers.

Is your toys produced in Denmark?

Yes, we have our factory in Hobro, where we produce all our toys.

Are there substances from the candidate list in your toys in amounts greater than 0.1% by weight? And what is the candidate list?

No, dantoy toys do not contain substances from the candidate list in amounts greater than 0.1% by weight.

Dantoy has a Swan-labeled production, and as part of that, our raw materials have been tested for the presence of hazardous substances.

The candidate list is a list of selected particularly problematic chemical substances. These include substances that are carcinogenic, alter genetic material, or are harmful to reproduction. Other chemical substances on the list are difficult to break down and accumulate in living tissue. Chemical substances that are considered as problematic as the aforementioned substances, such as endocrine disruptors, can also be included on the candidate list.
