Electrical & Electronic Toys: How to Keep Children Safe?

Electric and electronic toys are popular and often even “smart” thanks to advances in technology. However, if they’re intended for use by children can be extremely hazardous if improperly used, used without supervision, or not properly designed and/or constructed.

The possible dangers are many: electric shock, burns, especially if the product has a heating element; and a wide variety of mechanical hazards common to toys in general, such as sharp edges and points and dangerous moving parts.

In the US, CPSC’s regulations address the major electrical, mechanical and thermal hazards of electric toys and other electrically operated children’s articles. All electric toys must meet these provisions to be sold in the US.

In the EU, the Toys Directive sets out clear safety requirements for all toys and products traded in the EU that appeal to children in terms of shape, color and design.
