We inform

Information dissemination and awareness raising are two of our prime activities during the “Stop Toying Around!” Campaign

We have developed specific tools for Stop Toying Around! to inform toy consumers and the media. For interested toy consumers we offer a whole range of information materials, like regular newsletters, a report from an undercover inspection in Chinese toy factories, an Information Kit, a Guide for Activists, posters, shop cards, freecards etc.
You can find all the information material online for download or order it at your national campaign offices.

Very importantly, we work with the media and plan to do successful press and media work. You will be able to see and read a lot about the national Stop Toying Around! Campaigns, our demands and successes, etc. in your national daily newspapers, magazines, on-line-portals and on-line-magazines.

We also maintain a photo database to be able to give proof of the situation in Chinese toy factories. This database will be up-graded during the campaign. If you are interested, please click here.
