FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) What are the materials used to make Kindora Products?
Wood and cotton fabric are our favorite materials. For example, Kindora teethers are made of European Beech wood, a durable material for quality products. At Kindora, your child’s health and safety are our priority. After many months of research we, at Kindora, concluded that despite the existence of voluntary toy safety standards relating to the chemical emissions from cheap plastic and plywood toys, many toy suppliers do not adhere to these standards.
For these reasons, Kindora only sources products from Fair Trade artisan organizations. This includes our Wooden products and also our limited range of eco-friendly fabric toys. However, we do not stop there. Our teethers have been independently tested and verified to ensure they meet the current BIS Toy Safety Standards and we also view compliance certificates from every partner in our supply chain. We dye our wooden toys with non-toxic water-based colors to ensure safe play for children.
We are proud to say that all of Kindora’s products are manufactured in India. Some products are designed by highly skilled rural artisans, while others are made in factories which only use ethically fair-trade manufacturing practices.
2) Are Kindora products safe for children?
At Kindora, safety is one of our top priorities and our products have undergone strict testing to ensure they are safe for your children and adhere to all regulations set by Global Toy Safety Standards. When a manufacturer complies with these regulations, you are assured that a product is safe for your child.
Disclaimer: Kindly take note of the recommended ages for our products and ensure your child is supervised at all times with any of our products that may contain small parts.

We only accept returns for manufacturing defects. In the unfortunate event that your product is defective, we will meet our obligations and offer you a refund or an exchange. Please contact us at: email@example.com within 72hrs upon receiving our products. Contact us with the proof of purchase and relevant pictures. We will get back to you as soon as possible.

A tax invoice and receipt is sent by email to the email address of the purchaser as the confirmation email. Kindora is doing its best to offset the carbon footprint of its operation.

This also means that if you are purchasing an item as a gift, the receiver will not see your invoice or receipt.
