Quality and Safety
All products sold through Dave's Deals goes through a strict quality assurance process where we assess the company supplying, distribution, packaging and contents for value, durability and long term enjoyment. If we believe a product won't fulfil all three criteria of value for money, durability and long term enjoyment for children, then we won't stock it or remove the item entirely from our store. That's how we can maintain Australia's quality online store for all things books, toys, games, craft kits, stationery and homewares for children.
We ensure where safety is a concern, the products we stock have been certified CE (European Conformity), Australian Standards or ISO certification where required.
