Toys R Us To Carry Safer Kids Toys

by in Biosphenol A, Phthalates

Toys “R” Us is barring two chemicals that have raised safety concerns in products for infants and young children in its more than 1,500 stores.

Starting March 1, the Wayne-based toy retailer is setting a much tighter standard for the amount of lead allowed in toys made just for the chain.

By the end of the year, there also won’t be nickel-cadmium batteries in Toys “R” Us products — a move meant to help the environment.

This is definitely a good start! Having a big chain like Toys R Us crack down on crummy toys made from disruptive materials should have an impact on the market.
