Standard history

Main + amendment
This European Standard specifies electrical safety requirements for toys that have at least one function dependant on electricity, toys being any product designed or clearly intended, whether or not xclusively, for use in play by children of less than 14 years of age.
NOTE 1 Examples of toys also within the scope of this standard are
– constructional sets;
– experimental sets;
– functional toys (a toy which performs and is used in the same way as a product, appliance or installation intended for use by adults, and which may be a scale model of such product, appliance or installation);
– computer toys;
– toy computers.
Additional requirements for experimental sets are given in Annex A.
Toys using electricity for secondary functions are within the scope of this standard.
NOTE 2 A doll's house having an interior lamp is an example of such a toy.
Additional requirements for toys incorporating lasers and light-emitting diodes are given in Annex E.
If it is intended that a child also plays with the packaging, the latter is considered to be part of the toy.
This European Standard only covers the electrical safety aspects of toys. Non-electrical safety aspects are covered by EN 71 series. For more details, see Annexes ZZA and ZZB.
NOTE 3 Transformers for toys (IEC 61558-2-7 for linear types or IEC 61558-2-7 and IEC 61558-2-16 for switch mode types), battery chargers (IEC 60335-2-29) and battery chargers for use by children (IEC 60335-2-29 Annex AA) are not considered to be part of a toy even if supplied with a toy.
This European Standard does not apply to the following toys:

pillar set to the minimum insertion mark;
– scooters and other means of transport designed for sport or which are intended to be used for travel
on public roads or public pathways;
– electrically driven vehicles which are intended to be used for travel on public roads, public pathways,
or the pavement thereof;
– aquatic equipment intended to be used in deep water, and swimming learning devices for children,
such as swim seats and swimming aids;
– puzzles with more than 500 pieces;
– guns and pistols using compressed gas, with the exception of water guns and water pistols, and
bows for archery over 120 cm long;
– products and games using sharp-pointed missiles, such as sets of darts with metallic points;
– functional educational products, such as electric ovens, irons or other functional products operated at
a nominal voltage exceeding 24 V which are sold exclusively for teaching purposes under adult
– fireworks, including percussion caps which are not specifically designed for toys;
– products intended for use for educational purposes in schools and other pedagogical contexts under
the surveillance of an adult instructor, such as science equipment;
– electronic equipment, such as personal computers and game consoles, used to access interactive
software and their associated peripherals, unless the electronic equipment or the associated
peripherals are specifically designed for and targeted at children and have a play value on their own,
such as specially designed personal computers, key boards, joy sticks or steering wheels;
– interactive software, intended for leisure and entertainment, such as computer games, and their
storage media, such as CDs;
– child-appealing luminaries;
– fashion accessories for children which are not for use in play;
– babies soothers;
– personal protective equipment including swimming goggles, sunglasses and other eye protectors as
