Government to control foreign toys, games


The Belarus
government is to establish a council of experts to decide whether toys meet the
requirements of psychological health of children.

The council
is expected to control the toys and games produced both domestically and
abroad. The toys or games, bearing the features of violence and cruelty or
degrading the human dignity and instigating aggression, would not be approved
for use in this country, according to the draft resolution.

Belarus Education
Minister Aliaksandr Radzkou also noted that only 13 percent of the toys at the
domestic market were Belarus-made. 60 percent of the market has been occupied
by the Chinese-made toys.

In the view of the specialists, the Chinese toys are
often sold to Russia,
disguised as Belarus-made toys.
