TOYS

Thousands of millions of toys hit the stores every year. Toys are supposed to be fun and are important to children’s development. Yet toy-related injuries are not unusual, and lots of kids are subject to hospitalization in recent years due to these accidents. The accidents are likely to result in product rejections, recalls, litigation, detention and damages to brand reputation.

While toy safety tests are mandatory as major importing countries have set up their toy safety standards and regulations, manufacturers and retailers alike are liable to possible manufacturing toys defects and related health hazards.
