The Swedish Chemicals Agency (SCA) has found that more children's toys than sex toys contain banned chemicals. Their research showed that while just 2% of the imported sex toys studied contained dodgy substances, the figure for children's toys was much higher at 15%.
The Guardian reports that while the only banned substance found in a sex toy was cancer-causing chlorinated paraffin, the kids' toys contained much more serious substances including lead. It's worth noting that the sample size for both studies was relatively small, though: 112 children's toys and 44 sex toys.
Obviously, ideally neither teddies nor Rabbits would contain things that might kill us, but you'd think manufacturers would be a bit more careful with kiddies' products. Particularly as an angry parent seems much more likely to sue than someone who got ill from their dildo. [The Guardian]
