The Toy Association Statement on the Safety of Toys Made Outside of the U.S.

Consumers have every reason to trust the safety of the three billion toys sold in America each year. All toys sold in the U.S., regardless of where they are made, must comply with strict U.S. standards. It is the responsibility of the companies selling products in this country to make sure that those toys are safe. Regular testing and certification by government-approved, independent laboratories provides an additional verification of a company’s compliance with our country’s strict federal regulations.

Whether shopping online or in store, consumers should make sure they are buying from a reputable seller. Toys sold by legitimate and known sellers are tested for compliance with the U.S.’s toy safety standard.

This statement was reaffirmed by The Toy Association in September 2023.
