Usborne books are made to be enjoyed, shared, loved and played with – often with great passion and vigour! Our products conform to international toy safety legislation and where relevant, carry safety warnings to guide consumers choosing books and toys for small children.

Relevant products are put through many rigorous safety testing procedures, including tests for toxicity, choking hazards and general safety. They carry a CE marking, showing that these products meet the requirements of European Commission legislation.
