For generations SIKU toy models have been driven around the playroom. And there's a good reason for that: Since then, fathers buy for their children and grandfathers buy for their grandchildren our toy models which are created for little hands, thanks to their stable construction from metal and from plastic components.

QUALITY AND SAFETY AS TOP PRIORITIES
SIKU toy models meet the highest quality and safety requirements and give plenty of hours of enjoyment and safe play in the kids’ playroom. To ensure these requirements are met, SIKU toy models are manufactured from die-cast metal and plastic parts. This makes them sturdy and hard-wearing, making realistic play possible of everyday scenes in road traffic, on the building site, with emergency rescue services or in agriculture. SIKU toy models contain no and PVC and meet German and international standards and guidelines for the safety of toys. SIKU toy models comply with the European Spielzeugrichtlinie 88/378/EWG, which is based on the CE code and other standardized norms (toy safety in accordance with EN 71 und EN 62115). In addition to our compliance with high quality standards for all materials and the manufacture of our products, we are also committed to the protection of all employees working for us.
That’s why we have defined ecological and social behaviour guidelines that guarantee safety at the workplace and protection from health hazards. To make our contribution to global solutions, our company became a member of the ICTI CARE Process. The ICTI CARE Process is an initiative of the International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI) for the toy industry’s ethical manufacturing programme, aimed at ensuring safe and humane workplace environments. The behavioural guidelines of Sieper GmbH apply to all suppliers, while the ICTI programme is aimed at toy industry suppliers.
Sieper GmbH also has ISO 9001:2008 certification for the continual improvement and as a basis for the development of our organizational structures and procedures.
