General safety information for all products:

With any baby and kids products, safety is of HUGE importance! So read the information below before you purchase and please adhere to the recommendations.

Please supervise babies and children when using all of our products. Babies and small children can easily inhale, swallow or choke if product parts fall off or become damaged with excess use. If your product contains a metal or metal and bamboo clip, do not allow baby to put this in their mouth. Secure the metal clip away from baby’s mouth or on the inside of clothing. The metal clip, snaps or ribbon is not a teething toy. Always remove product while baby or child is sleeping.

Our little Helpers is not responsible for any harm that may be caused by not adhering to this warning.

Dummy Clips and Toy Savers:

  • This material may stretch up to 2cm with time.
  • No part of the product should be placed in the baby’s mouth. This is not a teething toy.
  • Hand wash in warm soapy water if necessary, avoid wetting the metal clip, only immersing the ribbon section in water, and wiping the metal clip with a damp cloth if it becomes soiled. Dry with a dark towel.
  • The Dummy Clips and Toy savers made from the bright or dark colours may transfer some colour if they become excessively wet with water or dribble then rubbed on clothing or surfaces. Washing the material in warm soapy water and drying with a dark towel prior to use may reduce the chance of the colour running.
  • Remove the Toy Saver or Dummy Clip if it becomes excessively wet, and swap it for a dry one, or discontinue use until it dries.
  • Clip the Toy Saver to baby’s clothes, blankets or pram at waist height. This Allows baby to play with the toy while reducing excess length of the toy saver near baby’s face.
  • Clip Dummy Clip at a distance away from baby’s face to prevent excess length of the chain from being around baby’s face. Clipping a dummy clip towards the shoulders or chest position is best.
  • Clip the clips onto thin materials such as onsies, thin bibs and thin car seat and pram straps (Not the padded section)
  • Clipping the clip on thicker materials will cause the clip to fail faster and it may not clip onto thin materials after doing this.
  • Discard dummy clips and toy savers at any sign of damage or wear and tear.
  • The product and the parts they are made from will sustain general wear and tear with use and will last approximately 4-6 months depending on frequency of use.
  • Product MUST be discarded after 6 months use.
