‘Don’t toy with children’s safety’ – British Toy & Hobby Association Parliamentary Reception

The British Toy & Hobby Association (BTHA) will be hosting ‘Don’t toy with children’s safety’, our annual winter Parliamentary reception in the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday 28th November.

Toy safety is the BTHA’s number one priority. This year, we will be bringing together Parliamentarians, government officials, law enforcement and toy businesses to highlight the significant number of unsafe toys flooding the UK market, and how best we can work together to protect children from these dangerous products.

The event will focus on how to keep children safe from the ever-growing number of unsafe, counterfeit and copycat toys being placed on the UK market. Illegal and dangerous toys put child safety at risk, cause financial and reputational damage to responsible toy makers, and ultimately cheat the UK economy. There will be a number of BTHA member toy companies featuring genuine and counterfeit products at the event and sharing experiences from their own businesses.
