Harmful substances found in toys from foreign online stores
The Danish Environmental Protection Agency has received the analysis results from the toy industry's trade organization LEG, where the toy products were purchased from Wish and AliExpress. The Environmental Protection Agency has assessed the products on the basis of the analysis results. Four of the plastic products contain harmful phthalates in concentrations so high that they can pose a serious health risk to young children up to three years with prolonged exposure.

For all five products, there is no acute risk if one's children have been playing with the toy.
