It's the most wonderful time of the year ... to buy toys and gifts for children. December has been designated Safe Toys and Gift Month. Let’s keep the holidays a wonderful time of year with these very basic safety tips to consider before and after purchasing a new toy: 

  • Read all warnings and instructions.
  • Consider a child's ability, rather than age, when purchasing toys; age warnings on toys are not guarantees of safety.
  • Buttons, batteries, and magnets can be very dangerous if swallowed.
  • Small parts are a choking hazard for children under three.
  • Toys that need to be plugged in pose the risk of electrical shock or burn; choose battery-operated toys instead.
  • Store toys properly after play to avoid trips and falls or access by younger children.
  • Keep older children's toys away from younger children.
