Where are Step2 products manufactured?
Children and their safety are our primary concern at Step2. We go to great lengths to ensure the safety and quality of our products.
The vast majority of Step2 products are manufactured in the USA through a process called rotational molding. We do import some accessories and smaller toys from China. All of our imported products meet ASTM (American Society of Testing & Materials) requirements and guidelines.
We have always taken great care to ensure quality control of sourced (imported) items and components including:
Step2 utilizes an independent Hong Kong and China-based sourcing group to perform multiple, detailed inspections during production and after production at the factories in China. Any components that are found not to comply with our stringent quality standards are held up and not allowed to ship.
Step2 regularly submits samples of each of our products to independent 3rd-party accredited testing agencies to conduct detailed testing to ensure compliance to the applicable safety standards.
Step2 requires certifications that the coatings purchased by the factories in China for use on our components are, in fact, lead-free.
