Why is it worth importing toys from China rather than from other countries?

China is the world’s leading manufacturer and exporter of toys. More than 50% of the world’s toy supply comes from China. This means that China has the largest variety of toys than any other country in the world, so you can find any toy you need there. This eliminates the need to coordinate the export of multiple products from different countries. With the availability of Chinese suppliers and shipping methods, all toy deliveries can be easily accomplished. In short, with Enhofchina you can import toys from China very easily.

Can I import toys from China?

Yes. China exports a huge number of toys to different countries every year. Whether you are shipping toys to the US, Europe, other Asian countries or any other part of the world, you can import toys from China there.

Is it safe to buy toys wholesale from China?

When looking for a Chinese toy supplier, you should double check their safety certifications and always be sure that you are buying a quality product. Choosing the right manufacturer and suppliers in advance will save you a lot of time and effort.

Before purchasing toys from your supplier, check the toy restrictions in the country you plan to import the toys into. For example, all toys imported into the European Union (EU) must comply with the EU Toy Safety Directive and have a CE mark on the product confirming its safety.

When choosing a supplier, tell him which country you plan to import your product into. A knowledgeable supplier will be familiar with these safety regulations and will work with you to ensure the products they sell are available.

We can take on the entire burden of finding and vetting a supplier if you need it.
