Children's fabric book makers promote fun yet safe releases

Children's book

This children's fabric book from Woodfield boasts a polyester velboa cover. The contents are sublimation-printed and embroidered.

Apart from pop-up and novelty add-ons, children's fabric books have accident-preventive designs.

China suppliers of children’s fabric books are incorporating more interactive features without compromising safety.

Many businesses are offering releases with pop-up pages and 3D images. Nonelectronic noisemakers that squeak or crackle accentuate these further. For instance, bird characters let out a sound when their wings are pressed.

Jinan Wellda Trade Co. Ltd and Woodfield Toys Ltd boast models with lights or audio ICs. The parts are often housed in a zipped or hook-and-loop-tape-sealed pouch that can be removed when the fabric book is washed.

Multifunction books are available as well. Shanghai Oriland Toys Co. Ltd has variants that double as picture albums. The pages contain PVC window slots for easy insertion of photos. Several factories even attach teethers or rattles.

To ensure safety amid the added features, Shanghai Oriland inspects product samples for small parts that may fall off and be ingested accidentally. The supplier also checks for sharp portions that can scratch the skin.

If releases do not pass, the maker persuades clients to use alternative materials. For instance, plastic is suggested over pointed metal wire for the antennae of insect characters.

In addition, manufacturers ensure that inputs are nontoxic and free of chemicals such as lead and azo. Products should meet EN 71 and CPSIA requirements as well.

Children’s fabric books from China generally adopt the same materials for the outer and inner pages. The typical options are T/C in a plain weave, polyester peachskin, and cotton pongee, twill and canvas. The first is the most popular as it is durable, easy to print on and boasts the ideal thickness.

Fibers that come in a velboa construction may also be employed for the cover. Moreover, several releases are inserted with sponge or quilted polyester padding.

The books’ images and text are normally applied via silk-screening and heat-transfer printing. Some companies use applique or embroidery.

As for binding, the mainstream choice is to sew the spine. Given the products are made of textiles, other fastening techniques such as gluing are not as effective.

In general, the manufacturing process begins by printing the images and text onto the fabric. The next steps are to add the padding and cut out the pages. Trimmings are then attached, although embroidery can be done before or after cutting. Binding is carried out last.

Children's fabric book prices are determined by the materials adopted and design complexity. Low-end models are $1 to $2.50 and have fewer than six pages. They are made of T/C, polyester peachskin or cotton pongee.

Midrange variants are $2.60 to $5, while high-end ones are $5.10 to $20. They boast four to six and at least seven leaves, respectively.

Both use T/C, polyester peachskin, or cotton pongee, twill or canvas. The releases utilize more accessories such as mirrors and noisemakers. Rattles, teethers, audio ICs and lights are found in the most upscale pieces.
