Yixing Plastic manufactures safe toys, using food-grade and BPA-free material. These products are brightly colored, shiny, very impact-resistant objects with good package littering toy boxes. Most plastics are perfectly safe for even very small children. Plastics in their pure form typically have low solubility in water and have a low level of toxicity. However, some plastics found in toys contain a variety of toxic additives. Although the relative risk of injury from plastic-based toxins is low, it's prudent to select your child's toys carefully.
Bisphenol-A -- usually called BPA -- was long used in toys, baby bottles, dental sealants, and even thermal receipt tape. More than 100 studies have linked BPA to problems including obesity, depression, and breast cancer.
Avoid plastics that are marked with a "3" or "PVC" because polyvinyl chloride plastics often contain additives that can make plastics more harmful than they need to be for children. The volume and type of those additives will vary by the object and may differ significantly from toy to toy. The manufacture of PVC creates dioxin, a serious carcinogen. Although the dioxin shouldn't be in the plastic, it's a byproduct of the manufacturing process, so buying less PVC may be an environmentally smart decision.
Polystyrene is a rigid, brittle, inexpensive plastic commonly used to make plastic model kits and other toys. The material is also a base of EPS foam. In the late 1950s, high-impact polystyrene was introduced, which was not brittle; it is commonly used today to make toy figurines and similar novelties
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, plastic toys may contain lead, which is added to the plastic to soften it. If the toy is exposed to high heat, the lead may leach out in the form of dust, which may then be inhaled or ingested by a child or pet.
