Allergy season is around the corner, and parents should be aware of the asthma and allergy triggers in both their home and outdoor environment. With windows and doors buttoned up for winter, dust, mold, and other allergens can quickly accumulate inside – making things like children’s toys a magnet for these allergens.

One way to recognize toys as being more suitable for asthma and allergies is by looking for the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark on the packaging. Toys that are certified asthma & allergy friendly® have undergone material tests to make sure they don’t have properties that are likely to irritate both asthma and allergy symptoms. They must also be tested for certain chemicals that could cause allergic or irritant reactions. Lastly, any allergen accumulating within a stuffed toy must be removable by laundering in a washing machine.

If you’re not sure whether or not the toy you want is certified, just pull up the asthma & allergy friendly® Certified Products App on your smartphone and scan the barcode. You can also browse certified products ahead of time and see which stores carry them. It’s that easy!

To learn more about certified products, Download our free App in the Apple or Google App stores or visit us on the web for more information about certified products.

If you’re a company interested in obtaining a certification for one of your products, please contact us and we’ll be happy to give you a free consultation.
