Smart Toys Testing

As a leading toy testing solution provider, Intertek has the technical expertise and resources to keep our customers ahead of industry trends.

What is Smart Toys?

A toy which has its own intelligence by virtue of on-board electronics. It usually consists of three interconnected elements: application interface, one or more connected objects, and a distribution platform with a display.

The Market

Children today are more likely to play with a touchscreen device, which sometimes doubles as a remote controller, than with blocks, board games and other traditional toys. Recent researches forecasted robust growth for the global Smart Toys industry in the next five years. Toy makers, especially the leading brands, are therefore focusing on the lucrative market of Smart Toys, exploring the potential to develop software and fun app to link with physical toys.

To comply with different stringent quality and regulatory requirements set by various countries, Intertek is a reliable partner, helping its clients to enter different markets including the US, Europe, Canada, Australia and other emerging markets such as China, Brazil, and Russia.
