Commitment to Quality
We understand that people have choices in the products they purchase, and we are committed to delivering products that meet high standards of quality at affordable prices. Zak Designs has never been, and will never be, a company that cuts corners for the sake of profit, and we go to great lengths to ensure that the products we manufacture continually meet our high standard of quality. These measures include, but are not limited to:
Examination of proposed product molds to ensure that the product will not present a safety risk to the children who will be using it.
Making certain there are no small parts that could pose choking hazards.
Utilization of removable straps that avoid strangulation hazards.
Avoidance of hard straws that could break when bitten.
Drop test to ensure the product can withstand being dropped by a child without damage to it.
Pull test to ensure that children pulling on the product will not loosen any of the piece.
Testing to make certain the products do not contain harmful chemicals.
