Our Woopy product (AZ-3045100) was subjected to a technical review last year, resulting in improvements – with a new conical form, and a modification of the steel cable. The independent testing institute Intertek has confirmed the functionality of this product up to a maximum load of 15 kg.

In view of two incidents of broken springs in the predecessor model, we have decided on grounds of safety to recall all Woopy springs of the former model.

We therefore kindly request you to return to us any Woopy springs which you purchased from us before 1st June 2016. We will refund the purchase price and the shipping costs. Please let us have your contact data and bank details so that we can make the refund.

The current product, which has been in circulation since 1 June 2016, may be recognised by the conical form of the spring ends, and by the label on the packaging stating ‘unabhängig geprüft Intertek’ [‘independently tested by Intertek’]. This product does not carry any safety risk, and is not involved in the product recall.

The AMAZONAS company expresses its regrets, and thanks you for your trouble.

Yours,
the AMAZONAS team

This year, AMAZONAS will be sponsoring one of the last great automotive adventures – the Allgäu-Orient Rally 2013. During the rally, 'normal folk' drive from Oberstaufen in Allgäu to the Orient in vehicles that are at least 20 years old.

The main prize is a real camel, which previously has always been donated to local Bedouins or farmers to provide them with a means of making a living.
All the vehicles are sold at the end of the rally. Any proceeds from the vehicle sale and other rally sources go to supporting local social projects.

In this way, AMAZONAS is helping to improve the living conditions of the local population.

Dear customer,

You have purchased an AMAZONAS baby spring in the past eight months.
Unfortunately, four cases have recently come to our attention where the Woopy baby spring has broken.
It is unclear whether this is due to a material defect or incorrect use.

We are going to provide Woopy with a safety line in future to prevent the baby falling if the spring breaks from incorrect use.

To be on the safe side, AMAZONAS is recalling the Woopy spring until then.
Please ask your specialist dealer or email us (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to check if your spring is affected. If applicable, your dealer handles the refund.

AMAZONAS would like to express its sincerest apologies.

This does not apply to springs purchased BEFORE November 2010!

In the past weeks a selection of AMAZONAS carry slings have been tested according to the test criteria of the German Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
The following carry slings have already passed the test successfully:

• Carry Sling (natura, paradiso, tribal sand, girl, boy, berry, laguna, lollipop, carrageen, golf)
Ring Sling (lollipop)
Carry Baby (red, blue)
Jersey Sling (black, olive)
Mei Tai (earth)

Other carry slings will follow.

More information about the Oeko-Tex Standard 100
Due to great demand from customers, all our AMAZONAS Carry Slings are now available with a centre marking.

A coloured mark right in the middle now makes our slings easier to tie optimally to fit both the baby and the wearer. That long piece of material dangling down on one side is finally a thing of the past.
