What materials are your products made of?

Cribs

Most Million Dollar Baby Classic full-size cribs are 100% solid New Zealand pine wood, with the exception of cribs with under drawers, solid side panels and backboard that are made from CARB II compliant MDF.

 

New Zealand pine wood is one of the most sustainable and renewable wood resources, and its forests are expanding, increasing total wood production annually.

For any product that contains MDF, we are required by law to follow the CARB (California Air Resource Board) regulations, which regulate and control formaldehyde emissions in MDF. CARB requires that our factories purchase their raw material from a certified MDF manufacturer. All MDF found in our products is from CARB certified manufacturers and is indeed safe.

Dressers

Gliders, Recliners, and Ottomans

Our gliders and ottomans are upholstered in water and stain-resistant microsuede or polyester-blend fabrics.

Base materials vary per product. Glider bases may be made from metal or wood; this is specified per product.

 

Finishes and Paints

Our paint is ultra-safe and all our products are lead, phthalate, and formaldehyde safe.

Paint is considered safe when it has toxic materials under 300 parts per million (ppm). In order for a company to claim low toxicity, it must have no more than 90 ppm. Million Dollar Baby Classic products come in at less than 10ppm. We perform annual paint tests to maintain consistent quality.

A selection of our cribs are GREENGUARD Gold certified and are tested towards the latest CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards on a yearly basis. In addition to lead and phthalates, the labs also test for other heavy metals such as cadmium, antimony, chromium, mercury, and arsenic.

Additionally while there currently no regulations for VOCs, in your baby's best interest we also test for VOC contents and the results are significantly low.
