Product Safety

The SweetPea Toy Company believes no harm should ever come to a child while playing with a toy. Consequently, safety in design and choice of materials has been considered at every step in the development of the SweetPea3. We also partner with third party toy testing labs to independently verify that our designs meet our safety goals.

The SweetPea3 is a safe alternative to headphone based MP3, CD and cassette players. While listening to music, children can still:

  • hear noises in their environment that could warn them of approaching dangers, such as a car
  • hear potentially important instructions or warnings from a responsible adult
  • interact with other children and adults
Key Safety Features
  • no headphones required
  • no moving parts or small parts that can break off
  • no lead anywhere including the electronics, the enclosure and the paint

  • a rubber coating to absorb impact
