Survey of chemical substances in consumer products, 85, 2007

A mapping of products and material used within live role-play


The Danish Environmental Protection Agency has made a survey of the range of products within live role play, including what kind materials that are used when children and youth produce their own role-play equipment. Equipment includes weapons, suits, artificial noses/ears, masks, etc. During the past years, live role-playing has become an increasingly popular hobby among children and youth. As this niche has developed into a more common leisure activity for children and youth, a market has evolved providing equipment and merchandise for live role play. Besides from this mapping, the report also provides laboratory analyses on specific substances of 8 different products. The analyses comprise a study of the content of the products and also testing through simulated production of home-made latex weapons.
