Abstract: 

HealthyToys.org is a first step in providing parents, grandparents, and others who care about children with the information they need to make better choices when purchasing toys and other children's products.

We launched HealthyToys.org because children's products should not contain toxic chemicals! No government agency is adequately assuring that children's products do not contain harmful chemicals. Nor does any agency require labeling or disclosure to inform consumers about the chemical components of children's products. HealthyToys.org was launched to address the failures of our current system to regulate chemicals in products.

HealthyToys.org is based on research conducted by environmental health organizations and other researchers around the country. The Ecology Center is the coordinating organization for HealthyToys.org, but the many additional groups provided data or participated in the release of HealthyToys.org. For more information about these organizations, please visit http://www.healthytoys.org/about.us.php.
