About i play., Inc. was founded in 1982 based on values that prioritize protecting our earth and our children. Children grow and learn by playing, so our products encourage healthy and safe development through play. Because babies explore through their senses and put everything in their mouths, we make sure that all of our products are safe and conform to US health and safety standards. In 2006 we learned of concerns about BPA ( bisphenol-A ), which is used in hard, clear plastics like polycarbonate baby bottles to prevent breakage. BPA has been shown to disrupt reproductive functions and cause other developmental problems.
