  • Look out for the CE mark (CE stands for “Conformité Européene” which literally means “European Conformity”)
  • If it is material, then check it is fire resistant
  • Check for sharp edges or finger traps
  • Make sure the item is in good condition – no rips, tears, broken bits, drawn on etc.
  • Check the item is clean and that all parts are present
  • And, if there is a battery compartment, look for signs of leakage and that the item works
