Halilit warns retailers to be vigilant over copies

Preschool music specialist is becoming increasingly concerned about the appearance of imitation instruments in the market.

Halilit has warned retailers to be vigilant over copies as it has become increasingly concerned about the appearance of imitation instruments in the market.

The preschool music specialist has told retailers to ensure they check all certification thoroughly, saying that Halilit has always placed safety at the top of its priority list when developing products and is aware that others may not do the same.

“We have been alerted of a number of Halilit copies on the global marketplace over the past few months and wish to remind retailers and suppliers alike to be cautious and alert when offered baby and preschool instruments that resemble Halilit products,” said Judith Stark, md of Halilit. “We have invested considerably in ensuring our instruments are safe for babies as young as three months, and have also undergone a lengthy process to reengineer items in accordance with the implementation of the 2013 acoustic standards.

“The copy products that we have seen lately would not, in our belief, comply with these current EN71 standards and therefore we have concerns about the authenticity of testing certification provided with these products.”

Halilit suggests anybody that is approached with replica instruments ask to see full EN71 certification from post 2013, and that should retailers be seeking genuine musical toys for babies and toddlers that they speak with the team about supply of the original Halilit brand.
