Little Koko sleep dolls and sound boxes have been thoroughly safety tested according to Australian Standards AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2002 (toys for children from 0-36 months of age).

We recommend that parents and caregivers only follow advice from the Australian Red Nose Foundation to ensure safe sleeping environments for babies and children. Please adhere current advice specifically related to soft toys here and safe sleeping recommendations here.

According to this advice, we agree that soft toys should NOT be introduced into the sleeping environment until a baby is seven months or older.

We have designed intelligent knotting hands so the sleep doll can be securely tethered to the cot. This allows baby to still receive gentle sensory input (eg audio, olfactory, sight) to assist calming and settling, whilst building positive sleep associations to the sleep doll.
