In this study, we evaluated the levels of phthalates in domestically distributed children's products. We particularly focused on estimating the risk of oral exposure caused by sucking behavior in children. Analysis of phthalate content in children’s products showed that one rattle, three roly-poly toys, nine bleeping toys, one toy block, twenty dolls, three toys, and two mats exceeded domestic safety standards. On the other hand, there were no products that exceeded the saliva bioaccessibility analysis results. As a result of the risk assessment, it is predicted that the use of rattles has harmful effects compared to other children’s products. As a result of comparing the age-related hazard index, it was also found that younger age was associated with older age of children in all the product groups. These results are reflected in the characteristics of children participating in studies conducted outside the country. Since various uncertainties may have affected the results, it is necessary to study and test phthalate levels repeatedly.
