Why you should Avoid Buying Chinese Plastic Toys?

At Italveneta Didattica, when presenting our catalog to retailers of plastic toys, we advise against purchasing low-quality products and Chinese plastic toys. The reasons are many and varied, let's look at some:

1. Poor Toy Quality: Chinese plastic toys are of lower quality than Italian 100% plastic toys, showing little attention to detail and assembly defects.

3. Environmental Disregard: Environmental sustainability is also important in choosing the best plastic toys. Unlike 100% Italian plastic, Chinese plastic is often associated with environmental problems, such as water and air pollution, as well as high consumption of natural resources. Choosing our product means prioritizing sustainability and making a decision that cares for the environment.

Chinese Plastic Melts in Heat

Many retailers like you might argue that Italveneta Didattica's plastic toys cost more than other productstree crying for help from other companies. However, as always, a higher cost corresponds to a higher quality final product.

Our plastic is 100% Italian, certified, and controlled. Unlike imported plastic, such as Made in China, it is non-toxic and safe. Particularly, and this is a significant concern with the arrival of the warm season, an Italveneta plastic toy does not melt in the heat and does not deform over time. Among the plastic substances that melt and deform with heat are:

1. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE): Commonly used for milk bottles, detergent bottles, and food containers. It can deform or melt at relatively low temperatures, around 120-130 degrees Celsius.

2. Polypropylene (PP):Used in many everyday products like food containers, plastic cups, and kitchen utensils. It has a melting point around 160-170 degrees Celsius.

3. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC): Commonly used for pipes, cables, and coatings. It can start to deform around 75-85 degrees Celsius and completely melt at higher temperatures.

5. Polycarbonate (PC): Known for its transparency and impact resistance, used for reusable bottles, sunglasses, and other products. It can deform or melt at temperatures above 140 degrees Celsius.

These are just a few examples of plastics that can undergo deformation or melting with the application of heat and should not be used for the production of aids, toys, and other products intended for young children.
