These "pits" are often notified by the European Union Children's toy products are directly related to children's life and health because they involve many factors such as safety, environmental protection and health.

How many common misconceptions about toy safety? Misunderstanding 1: The newly bought toys are clean and can be used to relieve children's play Many people think that the newly bought toy looks clean without cleaning. However, new toys placed in shopping malls are susceptible to bacteria, especially toys that are not packaged. Therefore, the toys that are just bought and often played need to be cleaned and disinfected before they can be played for children. Misunderstanding 2: The stuffed stuffed stuffed bag is not in contact with it. It doesn't matter if it's good or bad. Although stuffed stuffed stuffed animals are packed in, some of the fillings contain harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, which can cause harm to children's health. For example, they cause babies to shed tears and erythema, and severe cases can induce skin diseases or other diseases. Infectious diseases. So buy soft toys to go to a regular mall to buy toys filled with safe stuff. Misunderstanding 3: As long as the color does not fall off, the color toy will not cause harm to the baby. Although some colored toys do not see color shedding, these brightly coloured toys may use paint and may contain lead. If children do not pay attention to hand washing, they are prone to lead poisoning. How to choose children's toys First of all, the material should be safe and must have the SP safety mark. For example, the selection of plush toys requires special attention to materials, and the fine fibers attached to the surface of inferior products can cause asthma and may also cause pneumonia. For metal toys, it is necessary to look at the labels in detail to see if they contain excessive heavy metals. Second, the structure should also be safe and avoid parts and sharp edges that are easy to fall off. Some toys with parts and components, children under the age of 3 can easily swallow parts, resulting in suffocation. Some hard toys have rough surfaces or sharp corners that can easily scratch the skin and cause infections. In some toys with a round hole design or moving parts, children may pinch their fingers during play. Some vocal toys should be careful not to choose harsh sounds when purchasing. These noises may harm children's eardrums. Finally, pay attention to checking the outer packaging of the toy. The purchased toys are packed in plastic bags or packages, and should be destroyed and discarded immediately after unpacking to prevent children from suffocating the improper use of plastic bags. Ningbo Inspection and Quarantine Bureau also reminded parents that when purchasing children's toys, they should pay attention to the "CCC" certification mark ("3C" certification). China has already implemented baby carriages, electric toys, plastic toys, metal toys, and catapult toys. Six types of toys, such as dolls, have implemented "3C" mandatory product certifications. Toys without "3C" certification should be rejected. It is best to buy toys in supermarkets and store shopping vouchers after purchase.
