Safety Information

Products sold by ToyBomb.com are intended for Adult Collectors

ToyBomb.com markets and sells products, including children’s products, intended for purchase and use by adult collectors aged 18 and over. Products may contain sharp points, small parts, choking hazards, and other elements not suitable for children.  If any product you are ordering is intended for a child please check product packaging for specific safety information.

Check Product Package for Specific Safety Labeling

Always read labels to make sure a toy is appropriate for a child’s age. Guidelines published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and other groups can help you make those buying decisions. Always consider your child’s temperament, habits, and behavior whenever you buy a new toy. Even a child who seems advanced compared with other kids the same age shouldn’t use toys meant for older kids. The age levels for toys are determined by safety factors, not intelligence or maturity.

As ToyBomb.com is not able to test and verify the safety of every item we sell we include a blanket notice on our website and advise customers to check each individual product’s packaging for specific safety information. The manufacturer should include labels such as Age Guidelines, Choking Hazard Warning, Small Parts Warning, Marble Warning, Proposition 65, and other labels & warnings as required by law. If you have any pre-sales questions about the safety of any specific product feel free to contact us.

About Choking Hazard Warning

Toys should be large enough — at least 1¼ inches (3 centimeters) in diameter and 2¼ inches (6 centimeters) in length — so that they can’t be swallowed or lodged in the windpipe. A small-parts tester, or choke tube, can determine if a toy is too small. Avoid marbles, coins, balls, and games with balls that are 1.75 inches (4.4 centimeters) in diameter or less because they can get stuck in the throat above the windpipe and make breathing difficult.

Also, make sure it doesn’t have:

  • sharp ends or small parts like eyes, wheels, or buttons that can be pulled loose
  • small ends that can reach the back of the mouth
  • strings longer than 7 inches (18 centimeters)
  • parts that could pinch small fingers

Battery-operated toys should have battery cases that secure with screws so that kids cannot pry them open. Batteries and battery fluid pose serious risks, including choking, internal bleeding, and chemical burns.

About Proposition 65 Warnings

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment.

It is intended to help Californians make informed decisions about protecting themselves from these chemicals. The list is updated at least once a year and now contains more than 900 different chemicals. The complete list can be found on the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) website at https://oehha.ca.gov/chemicals

When are labels required?

As part of the law, most businesses selling products in California must provide “clear and reasonable warnings” before knowingly exposing people to any chemical on the list, unless the expected level of exposure would pose no significant cancer risk. This warning is often in the form of a label on the product or its packaging. The law defines “no significant risk” as a level of exposure that would cause no more than 1 extra case of cancer in 100,000 people over a 70-year lifetime.
