The toys I buy come from reputable suppliers - so I have no doubt about the authenticity of the silicone.

I wait it out until one of the Eden reviewers does the legwork for me I don't buy lots of toys, so I let the experts work their magic and use their advice!

I've never heard of the flame test. What happens exactly?

Flame testing can be dangerous and should only be performed if you are familiar with the risks and have taken the appropriate safety precautions. Here are three previous discussions regarding flame testing that might be of interest to everyone:

Don't test, but I do scrutinize the manufacturers. I don't buy cheap crap.

Thanks Kindred! I was just going to say it could be dangerous too! I think this is part of the beauty of EF. After reading the reviews here, I have felt confident about all my purchases! I stick with tried and true products from well know manufacturers and have never felt the need to get out my matches!!!

Does silicone not burn? This is the first I've heard of this (though I have seem a few "flame test" pics on EF).

I usually end up buying higher quality toys, so I don't. But if I see cheaper 'silicone' toys, I definitely read the EF reviews that have flame tested. I'd rather know before I buy!

I don't flame test mine I buy from reputable companies so I SHOULD be in the clear. I would rather leave the testing to someone else who doesn't care if they ruin their toys or not.

I trust the companies I buy from so don't have any reason to.

I have yet to flame test, but I've considered it a few times.

I don't do flame tests on any of my toys. I'm a bit worried of the possibility that something could go wrong... plus, why ruin a good toy?

No way! Even with toys I'm suspicious about, I couldn't bear damaging something I paid for (assuming it's impure - and even if it did turn out to be pure I'd be uncomfortable using it again, as I would be worried that I damaged it in some way that isn't visible).

Flame testing can be dangerous, so no, I haven't done one myself, but if I have doubts, I track down a review that includes one.
