1. See if there is any odor
Common wooden toys have more or less the taste of wood itself. If the taste is too strong, it means that the plastic packaging of the toy is too strict or the paint on the surface of the toy is questionable. Assuming that the plastic packaging is too strict to make the toy taste, you only need to put the toy in a ventilated and cool place for 2-3 days to solve the problem of taste. Under normal circumstances, as long as it is a toy paint purchased through formal channels, there should be no doubts.
2. Is the surface lubricated without burrs?
Most wooden toys are handmade, so the smoother the surface of the toy, the more precise the workmanship. Parents should choose toys that are lubricated and burr-free to prevent babies from being stabbed by burrs during play.
3. Toy materials
The materials usually used in wooden toys are roughly divided into three categories, one is imported rubber wood, beech, etc. This kind of wood has fine texture, good hand feeling, and durability, but the relative price is higher than the usual toys. One is basswood, pine, etc. This kind of wood has a beautiful texture and light feel and is usually used for most toys. One type is splint toys, which are usually suitable for make-up or flat toy production. Parents can choose suitable wooden toys according to their own preferences.
4. Check the age
Each toy has a suggested age for the child, and parents should choose a toy that is suitable for their child's age. Babies under the age of 3 have poor self-protection awareness and simply put toys in their mouths or nostrils. Therefore, when buying toys, they should choose toys with larger building blocks, a simple appearance, and a smooth appearance; babies over 3 years old have already experienced sensory experience. More abundant, safety awareness is relatively increased, and parents can choose more sophisticated toys.
5. Look at the toy label
This item mainly depends on whether the name of the manufacturer, the address, the telephone number, the main materials or ingredients, the use of age plan, safety warnings, and whether there is a product qualification certificate, etc. are clearly marked, and then to prevent children from being accidentally selected. Security risks. Look at the "3C" symbol. That is to say, whether the product has passed the national compulsory product certification. Today, six categories of toy products, including baby carriages, electric toys, plastic toys, metal toys, projectile toys, and doll toys, have been included in the national "3C" compulsory certification program, and the "3C" symbol must be clearly seen when purchasing.
