Selecta Spielzeug AG has their principal office in Edling, near Wasserburg am Inn in Bavaria, Germany. Out in the country with a wonderful view of the Bavarian alps, the Selecta employees work meticulously on new innovative and high value toys and games. From our beginnings, we have traditionally manufactured the majority of our products in our own factory so that, with the exception of a very few products, all of our products proudly bear the “Made in Germany” mark. We monitor all of our products from the development stage right through to manufacture so that we can offer our customers the best possible guarantee of quality. During the manufacturing process all components are subject to continuous quality control procedures which is how we are able to guarantee our high quality standards. Selecta toys are manufactured in compliance with current European and international standards. Our products are tested in accordance with the European standard for toys, from the earliest development phases through to their introduction to market. Our products are also tested by the TÜV Product Service for compliance with European Standard EN71 and are certified with the GS safety mark. As a natural material, wood can be safely put into a child’s mouth. Selecta only uses environmentally-friendly and totally safe paints and lacquers which comply with EN71. Using a special transfer printing process, we are able to print colourful illustrations onto the wood itself. This process enables us to produce very bright and brilliant colours, as well as providing a strong scratch-resistant surface which can withstand saliva. Our objective is to sustain and protect our environment and to this end we have already put in place a number of measures and are continuously working to improve these further. We primarily work with native woods, especially maple and in order to ensure that we do not fell more trees than are re-planted, we support sustainable forestry by working with PEFC/FSC-certified timber companies. We use the woodchips left over from our production processes to meet our company’s entire heating requirement and continuously monitor and improve our production processes to make further energy savings and prevent CO² emissions.
