So why are certificates important for a manufacturer?

Children learn about the world and how to interact with others by playing. Therefore, it is fundamental for the toys children use both at home and at school to be safe and not cause accidents.
Italveneta toys are 100% safe because they have passed the stringent tests carried out by international certification institutes, and the certificates they carry attest they are 100% safe.
