Toy Testing


The customer supplies plush giftware to retailers such as Clintons. Their plush products are manufacture to European toy safety standard BS EN 71-1, 1998 (Safety of toys - Part 1, Mechanical and Physical Properties). To meet this standard, small parts attached to the plush toy must withstand a 90 N tension test.


To meet the specification, Mecmesin supplied a test system consisting of a MDD manual test stand, an AFG 250 N digital force gauge and a variety of fixtures, suitable for testing a wide variety of plush toy shapes and sizes. This system enabled the customer to determine that the small parts on the plush toys could resist a specified force, meeting the requirements of the European toy safety standard and assisting in product design.
