As with any children’s toys containing small pieces, new legislation is in effect in the US as of February 2009, which mandates an age recommendation of 3 years and older for these types of wares. These wares are NOT toys! As with any other items containing small objects, adult supervision is recommended at all times while these wares are in use. It is not recommended to leave these wares on/with a child while they are sleeping. http://www.cpsc.gov/businfo/regsumsmallparts.pdf
It is important that you are advised these items are not intended for children under 3 years of age. Why you might ask? Because federal regulation prohibits the recommendation of products that contain small parts for children under 3 years of age. We agree this may seem confusing since everywhere you look you can find products with small parts that are specifically made for young children. From buttons and decorations on clothes and shoes to beading on hair accessories and stuffed toys with little plastic eyes or noses. Some items such as these are exempt from this regulation. Jewelry, however, is not.
To add to the confusion, there are thousands of stores online selling jewelry for children under 3 years old, with no mention of this federal regulation. Funky Birdie is not sure what to make of all this, but we do understand the practical importance of advising parents of the potential hazards of the products they purchase. Amber is soft. Children should not chew on it, or the beads may break. The size of the parts on these pieces of jewelry range anywhere from 1/8" diameter to 3/8" diameter, meaning the largest parts are about the size of a pea.
While we are not able to recommend this product for children under 3 years old, we understand that this regulation does not take away a parent's right to decide for themselves what is appropriate for their child.
