Safety issues in products for children

Safety Issues in Products for Children

Use non toxic dyes – young children will suck fabrics and could be poisoned by toxic dyes.

Buttons must be securely stitched on and should not look like food. They must be large enough to not cause a choking hazard.

Products should not have long ties or ribbons as this is a potential strangulation hazard.

Avoid small components such as sequins and beads that could be a choking hazard.

Soft toys should have strong seams so that the stuffing will not come out. Children could choke on stuffing.

Avoid long pile fur fabrics as the fibres can be a choking hazard.

Products should not have any sharp components such as wires or metal zips.


  • Use the mood boards to sketch some ideas for products and transport images and motifs.

  • Carry out extra research using the internet to generate as many ideas as possible.

  • Draw two initial ideas.

    REMEMBER: You need TWO different initial ideas for your exam paper.

Task two final idea
Task Two Final Idea

  • Choose one of your initial ideas to develop.

  • Draw a front and back view. Fill an A3 sheet of paper.

  • Improve, change and develop it in some way from your initial idea.

  • Add colour – pencil crayons only.

  • Add activities such as sounds and lift up flaps.

  • Add notes to explain the educational value.

    Be ready to add detailed annotation next lesson.


  • Calico or poplin – cotton plain weaves so good for printing on.

  • Denim – 100% cotton twill weave so strong and hardwearing.

  • Polyester velour – soft, furry texture but without a long pile so safer than fur fabric.

  • Polyester satin – shiny and smooth to give a different texture but satin weave is not hard wearing.

  • Corduroy – cotton but has interesting ridged texture.

  • Velvet – soft pile fabric usually cotton.

  • Thermochromicdyes – change colour with heat.

  • Phosphorescent dye – glows in the dark


  • Embroidery thread, sewing thread

  • Sounds – squeakers, rattles, crinkly paper, bells

  • Bondaweb for applique

  • Velcro

  • Stuffing and wadding

  • Lace, ribbon, yarn for couching
