There are warnings issued by the Department of Health and Food and Drugs Administration against harmful toys being sold in stores, Christmas bazaars and trade fairs. According to them, they have tested several toys and discovered some to be containing harmful chemicals like lead.

They advised the parents to buy safe toys only from accredited and legal stores. To check the label thoroughly, look for “nontoxic” markings and read the chemical contents to ensure that the toys have no lead and other toxic chemicals. The toys are usually smuggled goods so they did not undergo official process and documentation.

A very shiny toy and with paint that rubs off on hands may have lead according to DOH-FDA head.

It’s really enticing to buy different cheap toys in the market but we should think first the health and safety of our kids. Because if we don’t, we will surely regret it in the end.
