The ball in the maze game is swallowed or placed up a nose

The ball in the maze game is considered a small part, and a choking hazard by UL standards. However, its size has been tested and certified to pass through the trachea. The material of the ball can be detected by x-ray in case it becomes lodged up a nose or placed in another orifice.

Are Dulcop’s Bubbles Safe?

We take great care to adhere to all the latest industry safety standards, and pride ourselves on going above and beyond them. Our bubble solution is non-toxic and uses top-notch ingredients. Our automated production line discards products that fail to meet our standards.

What is the Recommended Age?

While safe to have and play around infants and small toddlers, we recommend three years and older for independent play.

Do Bubbles Expire?

Our bubbles do not expire. Both the solution and the bottles are designed to withstand extreme temperatures (122°F and -22°F). Once opened, we recommend using the product in a short time span in order to get the best performance from the bubble solution. But no harm will come to you if you don’t!

What is the EC Type Certificate?

This is the highest level of certification achievable in Europe, and issued only by a notified body. The EC Type verifies all regulatory, technical, health, and safety standards as set by the Directive are met during the production process. To our knowledge, Dulcop is the only bubble manufacturer to receive this important certificate.

What is TUV Certification?

TÜV Rheinland Product Safety and Quality Certification marks show that our products have met applicable safety requirements and quality standards. Our production plant and products have been investigated by an accredited third party, which also carries out regular surveillance audits.

What is Kathon?

Kathon is a highly irritating preservative and powerful allergen. Even though not required by law, Dulcop does not use this harmful chemical in our products. For us, safety and concern for our customers always comes first. Unfortunately, other bubble manufacturers still use kathon to kill bacteria. Always check to make sure the bubbles you use, even if not ours, are kathon-free.

Understanding the Real Value of Play

09/27/17


Kids love to play, and every child engages in play differently. Not only is it fun, but it helps children develop socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively.

According to a new report published by a panel of parenting experts and educators for the Genius of Play, parents aren’t fully understanding the value of play in their children’s lives. The panel gave American parents and educators a C average in encouraging play.

Panelists highlighted four main reasons why play is being overlooked and what parents and teachers can do to fix these problems.

Over Scheduling

These days, children are participating in more extracurricular activities than ever before. Sports, tutoring, and music lessons are filling a child’s schedule and squeezing out time for play. Many parents mistakenly believe that taking children to a scheduled sports practice is the same thing as letting spontaneous play happen. Simply letting a child have free time to engage in play can help you understand things about your child and help your child understand things about themselves. Free play gives children the chance to explore, to think creatively, and to problem solve.

Safety Concerns

Through our constant stream of news, parents today are increasingly more worried about their children’s safety. According to the Genius of Play report, children today are safer than ever before. Giving children space to play independently will help their decision-making skills.

Increased Screen Time

With the increased prevalence of technology in today’s society, children are being exposed to televisions, tablets, and cell phones at a much earlier age. Experts say that this increased screen time can have both positive and negative effects on children. Although technology can have negative effects on sleep, attention, and learning, it can also expose children to new information. The panel suggests that parents allow children to engage in tech-based play, but that they guide the learning and set limitations.

Less Recess in Schools

The amount of time allotted for recess has diminished over the years and is being replaced by class time. However, studies show that kids, especially boys, had a much higher level of focus after recess and were less focused when they had to sit for long periods of time before recess.

How Bubbles Help

We may be biased, but bubbles are a great activity for unstructured play! Bubbles create a sense of wonder and magic, and can lead to imaginative play. Want to be a dragon that shoots bubbles instead of fire? Or how about a fairy that is transported from world to world in tiny bubble globes? Burst out the bubbles and see how high your kid’s imagination flies!
