All Hape toys are inspected by an independent testing facility and exceed ASTM (American Society for Testing Materials) standards for safety. 

Hape uses only water-based nontoxic paints and lacquers in the production of our toys, they do not contain any heavy metals (lead) or other harmful chemicals. None of the products manufactured by Hape contain any of the chemicals listed in Proposition 65.

Formaldehyde is not added to any of the glues used in the manufacturing process and we meet or exceed the requirements of California Phase 2 & EPA TSCA Title VI compliance for formaldehyde.
