The Childrenís Factory was born in the attic of Mike and Barbara Richter in Kirkwood, MO in early 1982. Their vision was to create soft play environments in which children could safely play. The first product was a basic 3D animal shape sized perfect for a child. From here other products developed and soon the company was growing at a fast rate. Today the company employs over 100 people in a warehouse facility that encompasses over 100,000 square feet. In 2006 The Childrenís Factory was sold to another family who values their employees, customers, products, and children as much as the Richterís did. We will continue to focus on innovative products, widening our product offering, staying on the cutting edge, and exceeding our customerís expectations. Soft, safe, creative play is our passion. Our products are designed towards ASTM standards and our materials pass or exceed the CPSIA requirements. We are very proud of our employees, who have helped make our company what it is today! Manufacturing requires hard work, dedication and a commitment to quality. By purchasing our products, you make it all possible. Thank you in advance for your business and patronage.
What is the warranty?

What types of materials are used on Childrens Factory products?
Childrens Factory® uses only the best materials available and manufactures all of the products in their catalog in their plant in Missouri except our Adult and Childs Apron. All of their products meet California TB117 Fire Retardant Standards. NO lead or latex is used in our products. We use virgin materials to ensure top quality.
What is used to manufacture their Soft Play Products?
Their outside hygenic covers use three different materials depending on use, preference, or abuse circumstances.
1) 14oz Nylon Reinforced Vinyl
2) Expanded Vinyl materials including Naugahyde?
3) Cotton Chintz
What is vinyl?
Vinyl is a laminate product manufactured with a top and bottom layer sandwiched around a high tensile strength nylon scrim. It is cleanable with a bleach/water solution and is highly resistant to tearing.
What is expanded vinyl?
This is a puffier, thicker one-sided piece of vinyl fabric supported underneath with a cotton scrim. It is also easily cleanable and has more softness than a laminate but is less resistant to tears than our regular vinyl.
What is cotton chintz?
This material is used as an outside cover on all of our Cuddle-Ups®. This material is treated with a stain resistant finish and can be surfaced cleaned or the cover zipped off and thrown in the washing machine/dryer using very low heat.
What goes on the inside of their Soft Play Products?
Inside core of virgin (not previously used) urethane foam that meets all environmental and California Fire Code Requirements. Childrens Factory buys this material in large buns and fabricates all sizes and shapes and configurations in our own plant under exacting quality control standards.
Do you use the same material for the Cuddle-Ups?
Inner core for the Cuddle-Ups® uses the same virgin foam except it is shredded to make for nesting and changing surfaces.
Could you please describe your Mirrors?
They are featured throughout their catalog. They engender every kind of play and no room should be without as many as possible. Our mirrors are manufactured out of a material called PET. They are flexible and bendable and highly shatter resistant. Type in ?mirror? in our search in the upper left corner and visit all of the shapes, sizes and configurations available? To clean their mirrors is simple. Use Pledge® furniture cleaner and a soft cloth. DO NOT use ammonia based sprays or other cleaners. Pledge® cleans, polishes and prolongs the life of the mirror.
