Baby Art products are completely safe, even for newborns: they are non-toxic, have been dermatologically tested and are safe for your baby and you to use.

Each product has been assessed for toxicological and dermatological safety according to Regulation (EC) 1223/2009 to ensure safety equal to that required by cosmetics regulation. It can be safely used for baby’s skin.


All Baby Art products have been designed for use with children from birth to 3 years old, so it is perfectly safe to use any Baby Art product as soon as your baby is born. With sculptures, the smaller the baby, the easier it is to make the plaster cast and the more delightful the result! For impressions made using Baby Art modelling clay, the recommended age is from birth to three years old, or as long as the child’s hand or foot fits in the frame. There is no age limit for painted impressions – the whole family can put their impression alongside the baby’s, providing they all fit in the frame!

All Baby Art products have been designed so that anyone can use them and no particular skill is required. All you have to do is follow the instructions provided and all the stages involved in making it (proportions, drying time etc). The impressions really are child’s play and there’s no risk of them going wrong because you can start over again as often as you want if you don’t like the result. The sculptures involve slightly more tricky stages (with mixtures) but they have been developed so that they are very easy to make. It is important to read all the instructions thoroughly before starting in order to prepare everything you to make the cast and not to lose time between stages.
