As we head into the busiest time of the year for consumer purchases of children's toys and games, it is important to be mindful of the rules and regulations governing children's products' safety. Below are just a few of the considerations to keep in mind as we enter this heavy shopping season:
- Do your products comply with federal lead content regulations?
- Do your products contain any small parts or choking hazards, and if so, have they been properly tested and marketed for use by children of the proper age group?
- Do the children's toys you manufacture, market and sell comply with all of the regulations of the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)?
