In their surveillance report on March 15th, 2022, over 75% stress-relieving toys, including squishy toys, pop-it toys, and rubber toys e.g. bath ducks, fail to meet safety standards, involving loose small parts, toxic for reproduction and potential carcinogens.

Of the 29 models of plastic toys tested:

  • 22 failed to comply with the requirements of EU toy safety standard on mechanical and physical aspect, based on EU Toy Safety Directive EN 71-1
  • 25 were found to contain the potential carcinogen Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH), based on requirements of the German voluntary certification scheme GS Mark
