Frequently Asked Questions


How much do prototype samples cost?

Our design, development and prototyping costs start from £500 +vat. If you place a manufacturing order within 60 days of prototype completion we will deduct £500 off your order.


Prototype Samples include…

1 Development sample.

1 Finished prototype sample.

Manufacturing Patterns will be used to produce your pre production sample

(PPS) when your manufacturing order is placed.


Character Design Specifications include…

Character Visual/Illustration.

Character Turnaround.

Sizing, Pantone & fabric suggestions.


What is our minimum order for manufacture?

Our minimum order quantity is 1000 units. We recommend that you budget for 5000 units, but we understand that when launching a new product, it is better to start with a lower quantity.


Safety testing

Our prototypes are not toys and must be used for presentations and pre sale purposes only. Unfortunately if we safety test our samples, we would have to add a further £700 to the costs.

Safety testing is carried out before manufacture, once orders have been placed. The factory will develop six testing samples and send them to an independent testing lab before manufacture is started.

All our manufactured toys are CE marked, EN71 parts 1, 2 & 3 certificated and/or meet the relevant safety standards applicable to their country of origin.
