Counterfeit Products

TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS:

Yoshiritsu Co. Ltd., the inventor and manufacturer of LaQ toys have spent several years investing in resources and carefully developing safe products and brand recognition. Unfortunately, LaQ is being unlawfully imitated and sold at inferior quality through unauthorized channels. These copied products, while not always easy to detect, are not produced by Yoshiritsu, do not meet its quality and safety standards and are not covered by its warranty. The only way to ensure that you are purchasing authentic LaQ products is by purchasing through this site or through a LaQ partner or retailer.

LaQ Blocks (www.laqblocks.com) is the exclusive LaQ distributor for the U.S. and Canada.

 

Please report any suspect products to our customer service team at contact@laqblocks.com.
