Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International

Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

Amendment 1 to ISO 8124-1:2009 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 181, Safety of toys.

Safety of toys —
Part 1:
Safety aspects related to mechanical and physical properties
AMENDMENT 1
Page 1, Scope
Amend the first sentence of Example 2 to read:

EXAMPLE 2 As a further example, a two-wheeled toy scooter has inherent and recognized hazards associated

with its use (e.g. instability during use, especially whilst learning).
Amend list item b) as follows:
b) slingshots;

NOTE “Slingshots” are also known as “catapults” and are usually held in the hand; examples are given in Figure 1. Toy

versions of medieval catapults and trebuchets are not exempt from this part of ISO 8124; an example is given in

Figure 2.

Figure 1 — Examples of slingshots (not within the scope of this part of ISO 8124)

Figure 2 — Medieval toy catapult (within the scope of this part of ISO 8124)
Renumber all subsequent figures accordingly.

Pages 3 to 11, Terms and definitions
Replace the text of 3.4, 3.11, 3.44 and 3.57 with the following:
3.4
ball

spherical, ovoid, or ellipsoidal object, usually but not always designed or intended to be thrown, hit, kicked,

rolled, dropped or bounced
3.11
crushing
injury to part of the body resulting from compression between surfaces
3.44
pompom

lengths or strands of fibre, yarns or threads clamped or secured and tied in the centre, and brushed up to form

a substantially spherical, ovoid or ellipsoidal shape

NOTE 1 This definition includes substantially spherical-, ovoid-, and ellipsoidal-shaped attachments made of stuffed

materials (see Figure 5).
NOTE 2 Tassels with long strands are not considered pompoms (see Figure 6).
(Existing Figures 3 and 4 have been renumbered as Figures 5 and 6).
3.57
soft-filled toy
stuffed toy

toy, clothed or unclothed, with soft body surfaces and filled with soft materials or a combination of soft and non-

soft materials (e.g. pellets), allowing compression of the main part readily with the hand

NOTE A soft-filled toy may only be filled with a combination of soft and non-soft material if the main part of the toy can

still be readily compressed with the hand.
Delete 3.34.
Add the following new definition after the existing 3.51:
3.52
reference box

hypothetical surface, which is the smallest rectangular parallelepiped that can enclose the toy without regard

to minor appendages
Renumber terms and definitions accordingly.
Page 11, 4.1
Replace the first and second paragraphs with the following:
See E.2.

All toys shall be tested in accordance with the relevant tests in 5.1 to 5.22 in order to ensure that risks as

a result of normal wear and/or deterioration are minimized.

Page 12, 4.2
Replace the first and second paragraphs with the following:
See E.3.

After normal-use tests, toys intended for children under 96 months, unless otherwise stated, shall be tested

in accordance with the relevant tests in 5.24 to ensure that risks as a result of reasonably foreseeable

abuse are minimized.
Page 12, 4.3.2
Replace the first and second paragraphs with the following:
See E.5.

Toys, removable components of toys, and components liberated from toys during testing in accordance

with 5.24, which fit entirely in the small-parts cylinder when tested in accordance with 5.2 (small parts test),

shall not expand by more than 50 % in any dimension when tested in accordance with 5.21 (expanding

materials).
Page 20, 4.9
Amend to read:
See E.14.

a) Wires and other metallic components that are designed and intended to be bent, for example, to change

the shape or position of a toy or part of a toy (e.g. in soft-filled toys) shall not break and produce hazardous

sharp points, or protrude through any surface covering of the toy, when tested according to 5.24.8.2 (wires

and other metallic components intended to be bent).

b) Wires that are not designed to be bent, but are likely to occasionally or accidentally be bent during play,

shall not break and produce hazardous sharp points, or protrude through any surface covering of the toy,

when tested according to 5.24.8.3 (wires likely to be bent).

c) The ends of spokes on toy umbrellas shall be protected. If the protection is removed when tested

according to 5.24.6.4 (tension test for protective components), the ends of the spokes shall be free from

sharp edges and sharp points when tested in accordance with 5.8 (sharp-edge test) and 5.9 (sharp-point

test). Furthermore, if the protective components are removed by the tension test, the spokes shall have a

minimum diameter of 2 mm and the ends shall be smooth, rounded and approximately spherical with no

burrs.

Page 37, 5.2
Amend the third paragraph as follows:

Repeat the procedure with any removable component of the toy and any component liberated after

accordance with 5.24 is only applicable if specified by the associated requirement in Clause 4.
