Inventor of The ZOO®

I wanted to put my face here to emphasize the importance I have put on safety since the original design in 2003.  As with all good ideas, we have many imitators who’ve unfortunately  ignored it’s importance; especially as it’s for kids.  Here are the essential safety features designed into The ZOO®

Concealed Bungee Cords.

Elastic cords that are uncovered can become an entrapment hazard and can snap back into a child’s eye should the securing point fail or knot come undone.

Tipping Over.

The ZOO® is designed to attach to the wall with the hardware included to prevent it tipping.  This should be followed for all tall items of furniture such as dressers in kid’s rooms.


The ZOO® Formaldehyde compliant under the Californian Air Resources Board (CARB) 93210 phase 2 regulations.  It is also is free of toxins covered by the 2018 Californian Proposition 65 regulations.

A Word about The Wood.

Although the wood is lightweight, it’s made from multiply wood as was the famous British Mosquito fighter bomber of the second world war.

So properly assembled and installed, it should offer years of use covered by our lifetime warranty on parts.

I’m proud to say that my father flew this aircraft although sadly never to return from a mission in 1944.

Consumer Safety Compliance

The ZOO® complies with the following applicable rules, bans, regulations and standards enforced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), based on testing performed by the identified Third-Party Laboratory:
