Some toys sold online don't meet U.S. safety standards: "Our children should not be the testing grounds"
You have to protect yourself from legal liabilities. Safety and compliance are often over-complicated and it’s really concerning how many overlook it un-necessarily. It’s every business owner's responsibility to ensure their products comply...
Too many businesses make decisions based on price, while only “talking” about quality.
Standards ensure a higher quality, better performing product and most importantly better customer satisfaction (not to mention your own peace of mind that you are covered from legal disputes)
Aside from safety, there are a number of other standards (you probably don’t know to exist) for everything from finished, materials, colors and more... albeit they differ from country to country.
