The requirements for toy testing become increasingly stringent every day.
Many countries have established their own safety regulations such as CPSIA, GB, and EU Toy Directive for these items, and companies must ensure that their products comply with the relevant standards before their goods can be sold in these locations. Manufacturers have been held liable for injuries and fatalities resulting from design flaws, use of unsuitable materials, and substandard production.
