Safety eyes are made of plastic. Some people call them crystal eyes because they are so luminous and shiny. The eyes have a stem (also called a rod or shank) at the back and they’re secured onto a toy by pushing a metal or plastic washer over the stem. Once the washer is attached, it can’t be removed again, hence safety eyes. These are the best type of eyes to use if you knit, crochet, or sew soft toys for children.
