At North Star Toys we know children deserve safe, well-made toys. All our designs reflect this primary concern. We personally make each toy from start to finish in our workshop located in the mountains in Questa, New Mexico. Our lumber comes from the US, and our parts follow the federal and voluntary guidelines governing small parts, sharp points, and chemical make-up.
Our toy finishes are safe. Our toys are simply coated with a non-toxic, food grade mineral oil which meets or exceeds requirements by the USFDA, US Pharmacopeia, US Dept. of Agriculture and is certified Kosher and Pareve.
In some of our toys we have painted passengers. There is no lead in the paints or finishes used on our toys.
The paints and finish we use are manufactured in the US and are CPSIA compliant through third party testing. Any paints used on our toys meet and exceed all guidelines governing the use of lead in paints and toys.
