Do “taggie” blankets need CE marking?
There is some debate as to whether these type of blankets (with tactile ribbons sewn on around the edges which the child can use as a comforter or diversion) are toys or not. Normal blankets would not need CE marking and/ UKCA marking, but there is an argument that the addition of ribbons and similar gives the blanket play value.
The most appropriate requirements to use are those for soft toys, although some of the tests would not apply. Our Self-Certification Pack for Handmade Soft Toys will be suitable.
Bear in mind that “Taggie” is a trademarked name, so you should avoid using it in your marketing material.
