Buy safe toys for the children in your life
Are you giving safe gifts to the ones you love this season? Use this checklist.
Whether you’re buying gifts for the children in your life or for the children who otherwise won’t have any for the holidays, you need to do it right, for their sakes.
Under the wrong circumstances, e.g. a toy meant for a 6-year-old given to a 3-year-old, a gift can blind, choke, poison, or cut a child, among other accidents.
The good news: Prevent Blindness has a list of suggestions for toys of all kinds, and the organizations recommendations are common sense and do-able. Advice like: buy age-appropriate, check for the ASTM safety label, feel the toy for sharp edges, etc.
Let’s keep the holidays happy!
