The purpose of this consumer safety specification is to establish internationally recognized safety requirements for toys. Although this specification will not eliminate the need for the exercise of parental responsibility in selecting toys appropriate to the age of a child, or parental supervision in situations in which children of various ages many have access to the same toys, its application will minimize accidents in the normal, intended use and reasonably foreseeable abuse of the toys covered by the specification.
Because of this, our company has produced one series of testing products to verify if the toys meet the safety standards.
An accessible edge that presents an unreasonable risk of injury during normal use or reasonably foreseeable abuse. Edges on toys intended for children under the age of eight years are potentially hazardous if they fail the sharp edge test.
