Issuing time:2019-05-03 11:00Author:Nancy

We have been always required by our customers about the plush toys testing, include European EN71 and American ASTM, so what is the different between them ? Let us look below details :

1, European EN71 standard of plush toy : pull testing

(a) Torque test procedure: Apply a clockwise torque to the part within 5 seconds, twist to 180 degrees (or 0.34 Nm) for 10 seconds; then return the part to its original relaxed state and repeat the above process counterclockwise. (b) Tensile test procedure: 1SMALL PARTS: Small part size is less than or equal to 6MM, apply 50N +/- 2N force; when the small part is greater than or equal to 6MM, apply 90N +/- 2N force, both of which are uniform in the vertical direction within 5 seconds Pull to the specified strength for 10 seconds. 2SEAMS: Apply 70N +/- 2N force to the seam. The method is the same as above, and pull the specified force within 5 seconds for 10 seconds.

2, American standard ASTM-F963 of plush toy : plush testing

Tensile test procedure (for widgets - SMALL PARTS and Patchwork - SEAMS): (a) 0 to 18 months: The force of pulling 10 LBS at a constant speed in the vertical direction within 5 seconds of the measured position for 10 seconds. (b) From 18 to 96: The force of pulling 15 LBS at a constant speed in the vertical direction within 5 seconds of the measured position for 10 seconds.

C. Judgment criteria: After the test, the detected parts of the car line can not be broken, blasting, and can not produce small parts or contact cusps.


We have confidence that our plush toys could meet the plush toy testing standards above. Also if some customers need higher requirements than European EN71 and American ASTM, please discussing with us, we could find the best technical to support.
