How did you find out about CE Testing toys?

Through media coverage of children’s fancy dress. I panicked, gathered my thoughts, cancelled orders and put my head down and got on with it!

Did you have to alter your designs to fit the en71? 

My fabric choice is limited but I have learnt to be imaginative with it!

What advice would you offer to makers that are new in the process of CE marking their own toy design?tillyflo3

Don’t panic, listen, read and take your time to absorb all the information available.

What are you plans for the future?

More stock items through an online store and more non CE items (children’s clothing)

 

What do you enjoy most about what you make?

Being able turn children’s ideas into reality.

Did you encounter any CE marking blocks? (eg denial, material difficulty, money blocks, procrastination or others!) how did you get through them?tillyflo2

Difficulty getting hold of EN71 but followed advice through here to join Newcastle library!

What item/project are you most proud of?

my fully sewn tutu dress.
