Soft Stuff Creations plush toys are manufactured in China. In order to ensure ethical manufacturing, Creative Creature uses ICTI (International Council of Toy Industries) CARE certified factories. Through the ICTI CARE process, factories are monitored and audited via unannounced inspections for their compliance with CARE standards for factory cleanliness, employee safety, and underage labor. Inspections cover such factors as working hours, wages, benefits, facilities, and environmental health and safety for employees. Creative Creature guarantees that its factories are clean, safe and do not use underage labor.
