Smart Consumer: Don't toy with childrens' safety
Make sure you only buy children's toys that carry the CE mark. That's the advice from the European Commission following their latest report on the consumer alert system for products (RAPEX).
Their findings show that 25pc of product safety notifications made related to toys, while a significant number related to cars, clothes and electrical appliances.
The number of notified dangerous products in the EU grew by 8pc on 2008 figures.
