Children’s allergy symptoms can be caused by children’s play and contact, which is harmful to health. Unclean plush toys can easily lead to diarrhea and lung infections in children.
  2. Due to the uncleanness of some plush toys, cross-infection is prone to occur when multiple children are in contact. In particular, some unqualified plush toys may use fillers that may irritate children’s respiratory tracts. Because these fillers contain harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, after contact with children, it is easy to make children cry, erythema, and in severe cases, they can also induce skin diseases or other infectious diseases.
  3. Since formaldehyde can strongly stimulate the human respiratory tract and skin diseases, it may cause respiratory inflammation and dermatitis.

In the process of children playing with formaldehyde-containing plush toys, some free formaldehyde will be released, causing damage to children’s health.

Exposing the plush toy in the air for a long time will cause a lot of dust to hide in the toy. Over time, bacteria and mites can grow.
