Safety Update: Accept No Imitations
Thinking Putty Wholesale Group Shot 1-641

All varieties of genuine Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty® supplied by Logical Toys remain available for sale and safe for play by children and adults of all ages.

We’ve recently heard that there was an article published in the UK sounding an alarm about arsenic and lead levels in “magnetic putty.” Please be assured that this article targets specific knockoff putty and is in no way indicative or representative of the safety of the genuine Crazy Aaron Thinking Putty® that we supply in New Zealand.

Genuine Thinking Putty is made and manufactured from scratch in their own factory just outside of Philadelphia in the United States. Crazy Aaron’s is a vertically-integrated manufacturer. They do all the manufacturing in the USA, not overseas, so they know everything that goes into their putty. And they know everything that comes out, which is why Thinking Putty is the safest and highest quality putty on the market today.

All Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty, including Magnetic Thinking Putty, is compliant with applicable worldwide toy safety laws; is routinely tested by an independent, third-party laboratory; and is regularly reviewed by a certified, licensed toxicologist. In fact, Crazy Aaron himself serves on ASTM F963, the safety committee that designs federal regulations for toys in the United States.

We wanted to get ahead of the situation in case your store or customers have questions regarding product safety. To that end, we have listed all of the many regulations to which Crazy Aaron test for the ongoing compliance of all Crazy Aaron Thinking Putty on our website here:

Please feel free to share this information with your customers.

Thanks for all you do to help protect and promote the Crazy Aaron’s brand. We appreciate you so much and are so grateful to have you in the Puttyworld family.
