Pulling is awesome! A child up to 3 years old can exert a pulling force of 90 Newtons or 9 pounds. If the toy can sustain that for 10 seconds, it is safe.

Tensile strength is evaluated of

  • eyes and noses of stuffed animals after torsion test
  • seams and materials
  • protective parts (protruding parts)
tensile strength

If the torque test has been run prior to this test, then the tensile test is performed on the elements that have passed the torsion test.
