Toys belong to the product groups that have to be marked separately in online shops. One reason for this is that the legislators consider it inevitable that certain information about the product may be decisive for its purchase. This includes, e.g., an indication of the minimum age of the child for whom the toy is designed.
As online shops want to be easily accessible and easy to find, they are also easily monitored by market surveillance and prone to admonitions. Whereas distributors or fulfilment companies are responsible for correct labeling, pure online shop operators are also obliged to remove products from the shop in the event of known violations.
Companies and platforms concerned should therefore take care to follow the specific requirements for products in online shops and identify “black sheeps” as early as possible.
