Is It a Toy? We May Find Out Soon.
Think you know a toy when you see one? We should soon find out if the Consumer Product Safety Commission agrees with you.
At last month's PPAI Product Safety Summit in Denver, CPSC Director of Regulatory Enforcement Mary Toro told attendees that the Commission is working on new guidance regarding toys. The implication for suppliers in the promotional products industry is significant—whether "executive toys" like stress relievers, puzzles and desktop games will fall under the CPSIA toy definition. If these products do fall under CPSIA, the law requires that they undergo much more expensive testing than other children's products.
