Children’s Toys: Make Sure You Know the Dangers

When buying children toys there are some precautions that parents have to take for the safety of their children. The Consumer Product Safety Commission issues an annual safety message alerting consumers what to watch out for in toys for children.

  • Scooters and other Riding Toys – Riding toys, skateboards and in-line skates go fast, and falls could be deadly. Helmets and safety gear should be worn at all times and be sized to fit.
  • Small Balls and other Toys with Small Parts – For children younger than age three, avoid toys with small parts, which can cause choking.
  • Balloons – Children under eight years can choke or suffocate on un-inflated or broken balloons. Keep un-inflated balloons from children. Discard broken balloons at once.
  • Magnets – For children under age six, avoid building or play sets with small magnets. If magnets or pieces with magnets are swallowed, serious injuries and/or death can occur.
  • Chargers and Adapters – Charging batteries should be supervised by adults. Chargers and adapters can pose thermal burn hazards to children.

After the toys have been opened immediately discard plastic wrappings on toys before they become dangerous play things
keep toys appropriate for older children away from younger siblings and pay attention to instructions and warnings on battery chargers.
