The Common Hazards of Dangerous Toys
You may have seen news reports in recent years about toys that contain dangerous components or toxic chemicals. We expect toy manufacturers, more than nearly any other industry, to exercise caution with their products. But the tragic reality is that many of them put their profits ahead of the wellbeing of children, marketing products that are toxic or injury-causing.

Lead-based paint is a common risk with imported or old toys. Although lead has been banned in paint in developed countries, it continues to be used in many developing countries. Not long ago lead paint was discovered in toys produced at a Chinese factory, leading to a massive recall and a series of lawsuits. Lead can cause permanent neurological damage and interfere with a child’s growth and development.
In addition, there are numerous over breakable parts or components that can cause injuries during normal use. The risk of asphyxiation from small parts is well-known, but numerous toys can eye damage. Electronic toys that have been poorly designed can even cause electrocution. No matter what the cause, injuries from toys can cause permanent physical and emotional scars.
