RAPRA recognises the constant need to bring to the market new and interesting toys by using plastic, but ultimately they must be safe.
Plastic toys are more durable, they can be bent, twisted and stamped on before any real damage happens to them, but there is still a lot of potential hazards that can cause injury.
