Child safety

We consider safety an absolute priority. All of our Moulin Roty toys are tested and approved by an independent French laboratory. All Moulin Roty toys are in compliance with the European standard NF-EN71 and bear the CE mark, which confirms they passed all tests, such as mechanical tests, flammability tests and chemical tests.

Why are soft toys important?

Do you remember your first soft toy? Do you still have it perhaps?  A soft toy is usually the first gift a child will receive and quite often these toys go on to be much-loved keepsakes for years and even into adulthood. They are not only cute but have many benefits for children. Just the same as adults, babies and children can experience anxiety and soft toys for babies can offer a sense of safety and security during times of separation or uncertainty. They can also encourage ‘pretend play’ and help develop social skills. They can also assist children to manage and express their emotions.   

Age suitability 

When purchasing a soft toy for children under 3 years, we recommend you refer to the ‘recommended age’ section in our product descriptions online, to ensure it is age suitable. While the majority of soft toys are suitable from birth, some may contain small parts or removable attachments. 

Quality design and materials

Our Moulin Roty soft toys are carefully designed and their materials are hand-picked in France and Europe for both their creativity but also technical quality. Moulin Roty works with factories and workshops that are selected with the greatest care to ensure the highest standards.  All our soft toys are designed to be durable, long-lasting and of excellent quality. Before shipping to our customers, our staff individually inspects each soft toy to ensure there are no defects or blemishes. However, if you are not 100% happy with your purchase once it arrives, please feel free to contact our friendly staff. 

How do I choose a soft toy?

We recommend you follow your heart when choosing a special friend. Different textures, colours and even different animals will each appeal to people differently. Choose something you think your child will relate to and will be cherished. 

 Correct sizing

When shopping online it can be difficult to decipher the actual size of a product. A product may arrive and be much smaller than anticipated and not be viewed as ‘value for money’, while others may be too big and not an appropriate size for the intended recipient. At Little Snail we endeavour to provide sizing (usually height in cm) for all our soft toys. This sizing helps to ensure you will avoid disappointment when your special friend arrives.

 What soft toys do we offer?

We offer a wide variety of soft toys to suit all ages, tastes and interests. From vibrant, vivacious characters, to super soft classic teddies, our vast range has something to capture every imagination. Each of our soft toy collections tells a story. Our Au Tour de Monde collection features quirky sea and air animals, while the Apres la Pluie collection offers tiny forest creatures, seeking shelter from the rain. The ever-popular Voyage d’Olga tells the story of Mother Goose on adventures with her little ones, while the Il Etait Une Fois is an enchanted world full of magic and fairies. La Grande Famille has been part of the Moulin Roty collection since they first started making toys over 50 years ago now. 

How to care for your soft toy

Everyone wants their soft toy to last as long as possible. Each of our toys has care instructions in the online description, and for most, we recommend you hand wash or machine wash on a gentle cycle. To ensure the longevity and quality maintenance of your soft toy, we do not recommend tumble drying as this can affect the softness of certain ‘fur’ fabrics and plush materials.

What are the benefits of soft toys?

Soft toys have many cognitive benefits for children. These include imaginative play, fine motor skills development and language and vocabulary expansion.

They also provide emotional support such as a feeling of security and comfort as well as helping with the expression of different emotions such as anger, love and empathy. Soft toys can also help reduce stress and anxiety in children. Additionally, they can help children to self-soothe and to manage their emotions and may also help your child to sleep. read more

As well as providing comfort, stuffed plush toys can help your child to build confidence. Children often have little control over their worlds, but a soft toy can help them feel as though they are responsible and help them to develop a sense of control.

How do I care for my soft toy?

All of our ranges are made from the highest quality materials so while you can wash your toy on a gentle, cool cycle we do not recommend tumble drying.

Is my soft toy suitable for all ages?

In short, yes. While some soft toys in Australia may have attachments that are choking hazards and therefore aren’t recommended for children under 3 years, the majority of our products are suitable from birth right through to adults.

All of our fabrics and materials are tested for non-toxicity using the Oeko-Tex method, by the suppliers of the fabrics.
