Zhangping TK Toys & Gifts Co.,Ltd | Updated: Jul 28, 2017

For the definition of safe toys, each country has specific toy safety standards. China has GB6675-2003 "national toy safety technical specification", the USA has toy safety standard ASTM F963-11, Europe has toy safety standard EN71. The European Union's standard, EN71, is considered to be the most regulated and highest standard in the world. The EU toy safety directive (2009/48 / EC) is known as the strictest ever.

1. Toy hygienic requirements

EN71 requires that toys and toy materials should be clean and no pollution. Cleanliness can be judged by visual observation. Non-Pollution includes non-pollution of materials, production process and finished products.

2. Toy safety requirements

Toy packing bags, which the opening mouth is bigger than 380mm and use rope to close, must be made of breathable material. Or it should have a vent that is at least 1300mm, or at least two holes with at least 150mm spacing. The standard is designed to avoid the risk of kids choking by playing with toys that end up blocking the mouth and the external respiratory tract of the nose. As you can imagine, its a pity that naughty kids put poly bag on head without parents noticing, and suffocated to death.

Toy edges: toys should not have sharp edges. Any kind of toy edge has to pass the sharp edges test. For some metals, wooden toys or hard polymer edges, there should be no burrs that can cause harm. For some metals, wooden toys or hard polymer edges, there should be no burrs that can cause harm.Sharp edge may hurt the child's delicate skin, or even broken the child's blood vessel The danger level cannot be ignored.

Tips and protrusions: EN71 requires that the tip which can be touched should not cause unreasonable injury. and therefore a point test of toys. If the toys contain prominent tubular and hard parts, they may be dangerous to children and should be protected. So the tip test is necessary. Functional sharp tips may cause even more damage than sharp edges. Because the edge and the burr may just cause skin damage to the child. The existence of the tip, if the child runs, falls and other special circumstances, the consequences cannot be imagined, such damage is foreseeable, and must be avoided.

Safety of sounding toy: EN71 classifies different types of sound toys based on sound exposure. The testing methods and requirements of different types of toys were listed. This includes the expected use distance (from the ear), test distance, and the decibel limit under test distance. EN71 fully foresees the risk of hearing loss of sound toys and the danger of hearing damage to children.
