Semi-protected edit request: Minor reword for number agreement[edit]

In § Safety regulations, second para starts "For toy safety, every country has its own regulations. But since the globalization and opening of markets, most of them try..." (my emphasis).

Either "its" or "them" needs to change for number agreement. Please replace the first sentence with:

"Countries have their own toy safety regulations."

Thanks. 94.21.10.204 (talk) 09:00, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

Image[edit]

How is this image promotion when another teddy bear was promoted too? Zoe1013 (talk) 19:30, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

I dont understand the question. Sorry. -Roxy the inedible dog . wooF 19:57, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
Why did you revert my edit? It is not promotion. How come this image isn’t promotion? Zoe1013 (talk) 20:27, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
I dont understand why you linked to an image of a cute fluffy toy that had no bearing on my thinking. -Roxy the inedible dog . wooF 20:56, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
It doesn’t matter, I already removed that photo per WP:PROMO. All I wanted to know was why you reverted my edit and left the other photo in the article. But doesn’t matter now because I removed the photo. Zoe1013 (talk) 21:05, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
Ah, That's called being WP:POINTY. Well done. -Roxy the inedible dog . wooF 21:37, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
