The major problem with plastic at this point are single use plastics. Typically these are used once and immediately thrown away. Plastic water bottles, soda bottles, nearly all health and beauty aid products, yogurt containers and the list goes on and on. While Happy Meal Toys and other small toys are in that ballpark I would argue that if made well they are at least not typically single use. Manufacturers, including toy manufacturers, need to take the lead and find alternative materials that can be used.(plant based plastics that bio degrade is just one example). This is indeed a huge problem in the entire consumer products industry but I would guess toys is not as big an issue as others mentioned above as well as other manufactured products.
