Does the Stop Toying Around! Campaign call on consumers to boycott the toy industy?
No! Stop Toying Around! wants workers to keep their jobs, so the worst thing that can happen is that companies decide to cut their ties with a business in a factory or country and move somewhere else.
We encourage consumers to keep buying toys and companies to keep making them - but in a way that does not put intolerable pressure on workers to deliver them faster and cheaper, often in poor working conditions. We ask consumers to help us tell the industry to clean up its act and develop long-term ethical relationships with suppliers. To do that, the industry has to continue to operate at the factory and in the country concerned.
