Whether teddy bears, cars or building bricks: in order for children to play carefree, the safety of a toy must be guaranteed. Therefore, parents are increasingly paying more attention to the CE certification label for tested safety and independent quality labels that inspire confidence.
But it is also important for you as a manufacturer, importer or retailer to launch tested toys on the market: 34% of the consumer products complained about in the EU RAPEX list 2016 are toys. The consequences: product recalls, claims for damages, high costs and often damage to the public image of the provider, which one cannot take lightly.
