Safe Dummy Clips and Dummy Chains – what you need to know

Safe dummy clips. If you have a dummy loving baby, chances are you’ll need a few safe dummy chains! But how do you know which ones are safe and which ones aren’t?

It seems everywhere I turn there is a new handmade business popping up online selling dummy chains. We now see handmade baby goods advertised in our Facebook groups, on Instagram, Etsy and Pinterest. They are always so beautiful and some are such a bargain! But are they safe?

I can often quickly tell by looking at the photo of a dummy clip online, when it is not safe. That’s because I know exactly what I’m looking for. I have read the massive document outlining the safety standards and I have been through the rigorous laboratory testing process. It’s a tough one! When I was creating my new range I had so many aspects of it fail. I purchased metal clip components and was told by the suppliers they had passed the safety testing. They lied! I had them tested and they failed, and not by a small amount, they failed in an instant. They broke apart very quickly when tested for impact resistance, durability and tensile strength.

At one stage I thought I’d never bring my unique dummy clip design to life, but I didn’t quit. Now that I know what to look for, I thought I’d share my insights on safe dummy clips and dummy chains with other parents.

Please follow the packaging information when you receive your product, which states:
