Our little guy wants a watch “just like daddy” for his birthday so I began to research the various watches available for children. Lead found in children’s jewelry has been a headline too many times and I wanted to ensure I found a watch that was safe and chemical free. Sprout watches offers a line for children made of organic cotton straps, corn resin cases, bamboo dials and mercury free batteries. The watches are lead-free, phthalate-free and do not contain nickel.
Per their website, Sprout sources their watch components from Japan, China and the USA. They also state “All Sprout watches are in compliance with the CPSIA and are lead and phthalate free. The corn resin we use is in full compliance with the American ASTM D6400 as well as the European EN13432 standards for compostable material.”
The watches come in a variety of colors and are really cute – check them out!
