To sell toys for children under 12 years of age on Amazon U.S, the following federal safety standards have to be met.

However, third party toy testing is now mandatory in the U.S for toys for children under 12. Still, this does not automatically mean all toys sold are meeting this standard and are actually safe.

Why Eco-friendly toys?

Eco-friendly toys are better for the enviroment and better for babies’. Eco toys are initially non-toxic and putting less strain on the environment. As babies and young children tend to put everything in their mouths, this is a really safe toy choice you will be grateful for every time you see your child play.

Still, when you purchase toys online and don’t know the brand or seller, thorough research is advisable to determine the (eco) product is genuine eco-friendly.

Read the review and research the reputation of the brand or seller and when a product is for sale really cheap, do double research to ensure no shortcuts are made.
