Swedes warned not to buy laser toys abroad

The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority has urged adults who travel abroad not to buy toys with laser pointers for their children as they may cause serious eye injuries.

The warning comes after the government’s announcement that it wants to introduce stricter rules against laser pointers. The rules would effectively lead to a ban on the devices for members of the public.

A majority of laser pointers in Sweden have been purchased abroad and it is difficult to assess how strong they are, the Radiation Safety Authority said.
