Recently, the China Consumer Association issued a reminder that children’s toys involve safety issues including: mechanical physical damage (such as toy parts falling off, toys with dangerous sharp edges, etc.), chemical damage (such as illegal addition of prohibited substances, certain element content) Exceeding national standards, etc.), the age of the toy does not match the actual use, and the injury caused by the misplay of non-toy products. In this regard, the China Consumers Association reminds the majority of parents: not to buy inferior children's toys for cheap; to buy toys to look for CCC certification; the purchased toys should be suitable for children's age; some products are not toys and are not suitable for children to play; younger ones It is best for children to accompany them during play.
