With the rapid development of online shopping, you can buy anything you can think of on the Internet, even furniture, such as large items, online categories are also dazzling. Have you ever bought furniture online? Have you ever bought children’s furniture? According to the news media, there are many hidden dangers in the quality of children’s furniture, and online shopping products are almost “wiped out”.
Hidden trouble of children’s furniture quality
Last week, Jiangsu Provincial Bureau of Quality Supervision issued a quality analysis report on supervision and spot check (risk monitoring) of children’s furniture products, with a qualified rate of only 35.1%. Specifically, the qualified rate of children’s furniture sampled by the production enterprises is higher, reaching 85.2%; the qualified rate of children’s furniture sold in the market is unsatisfactory, only 47.9%; and the qualified rate of children’s furniture sold on the network e-commerce platform is 0.
Experts said that the “total annihilation” of online shopping products is mainly due to the fact that consumers can only see pictures and introductions, and can’t make simple quality judgments from the physical objects, while online shopping products need to attract consumers with low prices, so the quality can’t be guaranteed.
Children’s furniture purchase standard
In order to help parents to choose healthy and qualified children’s furniture for their children, some purchasing standards are summarized for parents’ reference.
First of all, for the products without warning signs, brand models, applicable age labels and instructions, purchase should be avoided. When purchasing, you should carefully observe the edge, tip or protruding part, and also pay attention to whether there is a risk of child fingers being hurt by holes and gaps.
Secondly, it is recommended to choose furniture products with less or no paint, and children’s furniture with a small amount of varnish for all solid wood is relatively safe. When children’s furniture is just bought, it should be placed in the ventilation place for a period of time, which is conducive to the emission of formaldehyde in children’s furniture and volatile harmful substances in paint.
Finally, the instructions and warning signs contain the special information of children’s furniture products, which is an important reference for consumers to purchase and maintain daily. They should be marked in strict accordance with the standard requirements, and must be complete and accurate.
