Deep Sea Diver Special
« on: July 26, 2007, 21:46:28 »
Just picked up one of the new style deep sea divers and couldnt help but notice that he feels a bit cheaper than earlier models. Not too sure if its my imagination or not as I no longer have any of the earlier models to compare him with ? Craig

If cheaper means softer or more flexible, then he will.  New legislation has come in force about additives in plastic toys and this change in formula affects the feel and flexibility of the toy I believe.  I first noticed the change with the DHL van.

No, it's health and safety and the possible ill-effects on youngsters of some of the additives previously in plastic toys.

In that case I am all for it, considering what has happened in China recently. Which has me wondering if there is a web site or organisation which rate how safe/recyclable (sorry not too sure about the spelling) a toy is
