There is a lot in the newspapers about toxins and dangerous substances in toys – and other children’s products.

As a parent, you naturally want to buy only the best for her child … But how can you avoid dangerous toys?

Here are three tips before you buy …

1) BUY TOYS FROM WELL KNOWN BRANDS.

Famous brands have a vested interest to ensure that products are designed and manufactured with safety. These companies have control over manufacturing, and mostly manufactured products in their own factory or factory where they have long experience and high Kontrol.

Tips for Buying Safe Toys

We at ABC Toys only work with brands that have high Kontrol safety. American Melissa & Doug test all toys repeatedly, through design and manufacturing, to be sure that their toys meet or exceed relevant safety requirements. German Haba has developed a 10-page brochure (which is also available in Swedish) on safety in the design, production and control. US Green Toys has “Made Safe in the USA” on the front page, Skip * Hop does not produce a product that you can not feel completely confident with.

And those are only a few copies.

Almost all our manufacturer / brands have a place on their website about safety. We think that’s good!

2) CHECK THE LABELS ON THE PACKAGING.

CE marking

According to Shopareview.com, all toys sold in Europe must have the CE mark on. This means that the toy has been tested to the relevant requirements of EN 71, including: fysikala characteristics fire chemicals and other properties, depending on what kind of toy it is.

CE marking does not mean that the product is safe, just that it meets the requirements. (For example, a brick thrown can be dangerous, but the block is not dangerous in itself.)

In the US there are almost the same requirements, known as ASTM. Therefore, most often the information about both the CE and ASTM on the packaging.

CE marking was introduced in Europe in 1985. The toys were manufactured before 1985 are therefore not tested to the same requirements, and may not meet the same requirements either. It can be fun to find a “retro” toy at the flea market, but be careful that it is safe for your child.

It is important to note that it is only for toys that CE marking is required. All other children’s products, children’s room decor, children’s rugs and other furnishings, are not tested and are not CE marked. It certainly does not mean that these products are dangerous, just that their manufacturers have not chosen to undergo the expensive and demanding tests where it is not needed.

Not under 3 years

In the EU (and the US) has been observed that children under 3 years are often stopped things in their mouths, but over 3 years old children do not.

If a toy is approved for children under 3 years, must undergo yet more tests on the size to see if the toy or part of toy could be dangerous if it got stuck in his throat. An old 35mm film camera can corresponds approximately to the size terms – fit the toy into the can when it is not approved for children under 3 years.

But even a 3-year limit is no magical way to ensure that the toy is safe for your child. Which brings us to the next step ..

3) ATTENTION CAN NOT BE REPLACED!

Almost all the toys can be safe … and almost all can be dangerous. Everything depends on your child, toy use and your attention.

A heavy toy in metal or wood is perhaps not the best choice for a child who likes to throw things. A child who wants to suck everything should perhaps avoid the puzzle of cardboard, magnets and other toys that are not intended to be mouthed. And all toys intended for the tub has a warning to – that you should never, never leave the child in the bathtub without supervision.

You know your child best!

AND ONE LAST TIP THAT DOES NOT APPLY TO TOYS … LOOK AT MORE THAN JUST TOYS …

Remember that there are many other things in the environment that can also be dangerous for children of different ages – makeup, toothpaste, cooking utensils, mats, shoes, insects, leaves, cleaning agents, etc. are all things that can be in the child’s neighborhood that could be dangerous .

We want you to feel completely safe when you shop your toys online. Do you have more questions about our toys, games and other children’s products, please do not hesitate to contact us at hej@oursite.
