Safety Standards

Yoto products are safe and suitable for use by kids aged 3 and up. We recommend only adults use the charger, which should be kept out of reach of children at all times.

We want our products to grow with your kids throughout their childhood, but that's only possible if our products can withstand the trials and tribulations of family life. That's why we maintain high levels of control and supervision to make sure our products have the longevity and quality you would expect. We also conduct regular performance testing and quality inspections, with all of our products undergoing rigorous third-party testing to the highest global safety standards.

Yoto products meet the unique toy safety standards of every region where they are sold, including EN71 for Europe & UK, ASTM for the United States, ISO for Australia and SOR for Canada. They also comply with RoHS and REACH, which is EU legislation that controls the risks associated with chemical and hazardous substances in electronic equipment, and the various low voltage, radio equipment and electromagnetic compatibility legislation from around the globe.
