Top 4 facts about toys


Not all fun

Toys are supposed to be fun. But several studies have shown that children who chew on PVC toys — such as pacifiers and teething rings — absorb dangerous chemicals into their bodies.


Chemical toys

Some baby bottles and nipples are made of plastics which contain chemicals that are known to disrupt the hormone system — including phthalates and bisphenol-A.


The effects are not pleasant

Soft plastic toys may contain more than 40 percent phthalates by weight. Phthalates have been linked to a number of reproductive health effects, including reduced fertility, miscarriage, birth defects, abnormal sperm counts, and testicular damage, as well as to liver and kidney cancer.


What to do?

When buying baby toys, or toys in general for that matter, look for items made without PVC and other bad stuff.


The total production of toys by member countries of the International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI) is estimated at 83.3 billion USD at the retail level.
