The holiday season is approaching and new toy advertisements are appearing by the dozens on television, computers, tablets, and smart phones, in the newspaper, and in the catalogs mailed to your home. Children can’t wait to get the “hottest” toys for the holiday season, and adults are more than happy to oblige, even if it’s only to see the expression on the child’s face when they open the gift.
But when you select a toy for your child, are you taking time to determine 1) if these toys are safe, and 2) if they are age-appropriate?
In many cases, the answer to these questions is no. We assume that if it’s being sold in our local Toys”R”Us or online through Amazon or other e-retailers, it’s safe and appropriate for our child. But that’s not always the case. Did you know that more than 250,000 children were rushed to the emergency room for injuries related to toys in 2014? Injuries sustained were caused by toys ranging from non-motorized scooters to marbles to balls.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) works to ensure toys are safe, but parents and guardians need to read labels, follow toy recalls, and be aware of general safety hazards with certain types of toys. Follow the tips below to reduce the risk of your child suffering an injury.
