Wumba safety

Not only is it fun to see what kids come up with, but parents can also rest assured that these magnetic wooden toys with their smooth edges are completely safe. Made of natural solid Ukrainian beech wood, WUMBA uses lead-free magnets and water-based paints. It is also impossible to see, touch or extract the magnets, so there is no danger of a child swallowing them.

We have chosen beech wood as a perfect solution for our toys. It is oak-strong; therefore, each block is long-lasting. Also, beech wood has antiseptic properties. It is easy to work with and leaves fewer hooks and chips, so children can’t get hurt. An extra bonus of using beech wood is that it has a beautiful texture: the annual layers are well distinguished, so it looks amazing after polishing.

Moreover, beach trees regrow fast, meaning our toys are sustainable.

The details are painted with water-based lacquers. It is 100% ecofriendly, as it’s based on acrylate, which dissolves in water and contains no toxic paint chemicals (lead-free). This covering allows the wood to adapt to the humidity of the environment, which increases the product’s lifespan. Blocks covered with such lacquers don’t lose their color after being exposed to sunlight for a long time. Our blocks contain no flammable substances and are therefore fireproof.

Furthermore, it doesn’t totally overlay the wooden texture. So the result looks colorful but still natural.

To connect the blocks, we use strong Neodymium magnets. They have the longest lifespan, losing only 1% of their strength in 100 years. The magnets are small, light-weight and lead-free. We use 7x7mm cylindrical magnets with an axial magnetic field. Our magnets have a bonding force of 1.5 kg.

Most importantly, they are implanted and securely sealed inside the wood.

We take safety very seriously, and we use independent consumer labs to make sure that everything is safe and certified before we ship it out to you. The final product will be CE-marked and compliant with the European Standard for Toys covered by EN-71 and REACH, as well as the equivalent US standards covered by ASTM F963 and CPSIA.
