(Prague, October 11, 2013) People buying Christmas parents for children should consider whether such products are suitable and safe for the respective age of the particular child. A wooden puzzle of China origin fails safety requirements. More than a half of its 48 cubes fit in testing tube for small parts, meaning that there is a risk that a child can swallow or inhale some of them. “Especially small children want to perceive toys with all senses – not only see and touch them, but also taste them which can have fatal consequences in this case. This is why I recommend considering whether individual parts are threats to the health and life of a small user,” said Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the CTIA.
