Baby Box

The baby box is the most recognisable part of the famous package given to babies in Finland.

Our box is constructed here in New Zealand, with its inner corrugations made of recycled paper and its outer walls being made of virgin fibre.

At present, there are no compulsory safety standards for bassinets in New Zealand. The good news is that this is currently under review and we believe that it can only be a good thing for babies once these are in place.

However, we have already taken steps to make our baby boxes as safe as possible. These include:

- Ensuring a distance of 250mm from the top of the mattress to the edge of the box

- Constructing the box from one solid piece of cardboard with a double layered bottom, double layered long sides and triple layered short sides. We advise against carrying a baby in the box but have made it as strong as possible in the event this does occur.

- Performing migration testing to comply with AS/NZS ISO 8124.3:2012. This standard applies to cots and toys sold in New Zealand and relates to the migration (or transfer) of elements from products to children. In other words, if a baby is sleeping in the box, it has been tested to be safe in the case of the baby sucking or licking the walls.

- Every box comes with safety instructions on the lid and base as well as a list of emergency contact numbers

The lid of the box can be turned over, covered with a cotton nappy and used as a change table on the floor.

We recommend placing the lid upside down underneath the box when baby is inside to prevent any chance of it being placed on the box.
