Buy Safe Toys

With the holiday season comes the toy buying season. If you plan to buy toys for young children this holiday season, review these toy safety tips:
  • Keep in mind the child’s age, interests and skill level.
  • Look for quality design and construction in all toys for all ages.
  • Make sure that all directions or instructions are clear—to you and, when appropriate, to the child.
  • Plastic wrappings on toys should be discarded at once before they become deadly playthings.
  • Be a label reader. Look for and heed age recommendations, such as “Not recommended for children under three.”
  • Look for other safety labels including: “Flame retardant/Flame resistant” on fabric products and “Washable/hygienic materials” on stuffed toys and dolls.
