Says .NO..Rinse it off with warm water. It can melt in dishwasher. Just found out, All Baby Einstein toys come from China that is why the price is so low!! I'm now buying "Green Toys". Sells on Amazon.
Yes but I would recommend since a child uses it there could be left over soap residue what I do for my grandson is soak it in a mixture of hot water, vinegar and baking soda then rinse after soaking it for 10 minutes then if the child puts it hands in their mouths after touching it you do not take the risk of soap residue which can cause loose stools. I clean all my grandchildrens toys this way and if using boiling water to soak them it is very sterile after I hope this helps
Asked mothers of both grandsons I gave to and one said a definite yes and the other can't recall but doesn't think she would have put it in the dishwasher. My thought would be top shelf safe in the dishwasher.
