HONG KONG, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 30th, TUV Rheinland Hong Kong experts brought toy safety knowledge to a group of over twenty kids at the YMCA Lam Tin Center. In 2015, EU issued over 460 notifications regarding toy safety in the RAPEX (Rapid Alert System for Dangerous non-food products). The common risks of toys are chemical substance release and choking. During the Easter holiday, our experts used humorous, interesting examples and interactive games to convey safety tips when playing with toys.

During the talk, our experts covered a wide range of products, from seasonal products such as swimming pools, sunglasses, face paint, etc. The kids were focused and involved in the presentation and actively participated in the discussion. At the same time, we told them of the dangerous outcomes of being careless when playing with toys and taught the kids how to choose safe and suitable toys.
