This time of year, many parents start receiving toy lists from their children. These lists often include the latest doll, action figure, and gaming system. When the time comes for toys to be picked out and gifted, there are some safety tips to think about:
- Pay attention to the age recommendations of toys
- Check toys regularly for broken pieces
- Always read the labels and safety warnings on toys
Toys are meant to be fun to play with, and are important for a child’s development. The little ones can learn a lot from toys as they grow, and the older ones get a chance to use their imaginations and dive deep into their own little worlds.
Careful toy selection and supervision at play will always be the best ways to protect children from toy-related injuries. Let’s choose safe toys for our children!
