Yoto products are suitable for use by kids aged 3 and up. Although we've got hundreds of titles for kids from birth to 12+ years, children under 3 years should only use Yoto products under adult supervision. We recommend only adults use the charger, which should be kept out of reach of children at all times.
We want Yoto products to grow with your kids throughout their childhood. But that’s only possible if our products can withstand the trials and tribulations of family life. That’s why we maintain high levels of control and supervision and conduct regular performance testing and quality inspections, to make sure our products have the longevity and quality you would expect. And of course, all of our products undergo rigorous third-party testing to the highest global safety standards.
Yoto products meet the unique toy safety standards of every region where they are sold, including EN71 for Europe & UK, ASTM for the United States, ISO for Australia and SOR for Canada. They also comply with RoHS and REACH, which is EU legislation that controls the risks associated with chemical and hazardous substances in electronic equipment, and the various low voltage, radio equipment and electromagnetic compatibility legislation from around the globe.
See below for our product safety manuals and warnings. But first, some guidance on safe use, in pictures.
