TOYS

 

Toys are fun and they are an important part of childhood development. With thousands of toys entering the market on a daily basis, consumers need to be confident that the toys they are purchasing are safe. Toy safety is highly regulated and toy safety standards all round the world are constantly changing in both emerging and matured markets.
