Canadian Toy Association applauds new safety legislation

Toys are common tenants of storage units, as parents often like to hang on to them after their kids have grown should another child come in to their life.

Due to safety, however, some toys may be accidents waiting to happen and not worth saving. But the implementation of the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act should help determine trash from treasure.

"The toy industry welcomes the CCPSA," said Jeff Hurst, chairman of the Canadian Toy Association. "This act introduces a number of important provisions, including mandatory recall powers. These provisions complement the rigorous testing and product compliance systems currently in place for toy manufacturers."

Hurst went on to say that the CCPSA should enhance the shared responsibility toy companies and government officials have in making sure kids aren't injured by poorly-manufactured toys.

Because toys vary so widely, the CTA advises parents and child care professionals to pay attention to labels and to take them seriously. For instance, the CTA says parents should always read the label that accompanies toys regarding its age appropriateness before buying. Even if the toy suits the child's age, CTA says young children should always be monitored while using it.
