How to choose toys for your baby?
Look at the 3C certification and label description of toys
3C certification is the abbreviation of China Compulsory Product Certification. The state stipulates that plastic toys must pass the national compulsory product certification, that is, have the 'CCC' mark. If there is no 3C certification on the product packaging, it means that the product is a fake and inferior product. However, the 3C mark is not a quality mark, but a basic safety certification, which can only prove that the product is qualified, but cannot prove that the product has excellent performance. In addition, you must also check the manufacturer, place of origin, main material composition, warning slogans, product qualification certificates and other labels.
Smell the smell of plastic toys
The German Consumer Protection Center pointed out that if some children’s toys have a pungent smell, they should contain harmful substances, such as Harmful substances of phthalate plasticizers. Therefore, it is recommended that everyone smell the smell when buying toys. Some experts suggest that you can wash the toys and air them first to evaporate the smell of the plastic as much as possible to reduce the peeling paint and the heavy metal content in it. If the plastic toy is marked with a high temperature that can withstand it, you can also boil the toy before using it.
Look at the gloss and color vividness of toys
High-quality plastic toys perform much better than inferior toys in terms of gloss and color vividness. This is because high-quality plastic toys are usually made of PVC, PP, PE and other plastic raw materials, and the plastic itself is very shiny. Many low-quality toys are usually made of 'two materials' (that is, materials that are recycled and reprocessed from waste plastic products), and the color becomes worse after reprocessing. Although it does not necessarily guarantee that the color is good, it must be safe, but the products with poor gloss and poor color are all products with potential safety hazards.
Look at the thickness of the toy product
The biggest feature of plastic toys is that the finished product or parts are injection molded at one time. If the inner wall of the injection molded toy is too thin, it is easy for children to play Breaking, falling, and fragile plastic parts will produce small fragments, sharp edges, and corners, which are dangerous to the baby. Generally, the plastic wall in corners or arcs is thicker than other places, which increases the damage tolerance of the toy when it falls to the ground and reduces the damage.
