Our trademark durable Small Parts Cylinder, updated with our existing DT brand logo, is now available for parents, educators, and other childhood development professionals.
Correct use of the Small Parts Cylinder
To determine whether an object is classified as a small part, place it, without compressing, into the cylinder. If it fits entirely inside (in any position) and does not protrude over the top edge, then it is a small part and is potentially dangerous to a child under three years of age. If it does not fit inside the cylinder, or fits inside but protrudes beyond the top edge, then it is not classified as a small part.
Although the Small Parts Cylinder will help identify potentially hazardous pieces, nothing can take the place of close parental supervision, common sense and knowledge of toy safety.
