The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has published the (2020) Age Determination Guidelines: Relating Consumer Product Characteristics to the Skills, Play Behaviors, and Interests of Children on January 27th, 2020.

This document presents age-grading information in the form of guidelines for toys and other articles, children’s toys, child care articles, and children’s products. These guidelines provide age determinations, in which the various characteristics of a consumer product are matched to the skills, play behaviors, and interests of children in a particular age group.

The CPSC will begin to use this document on June 1st, 2020 and it will supersede the (2002) Age Determination Guidelines: Relating Children’s Ages to Toy Characteristics and Play Behavior.
