Toys are fun and help children learn to solve problems, such as how to get toys upright if they fall over. Children can learn about colors, numbers, shapes, balance, and what happens when they move or open the toy. However, thousands of children are treated in the emergency department every year because they were injured by toys.
You need to think about safety when researching, buying, and playing with toys. Supervise your child’s play to teach your child how to play safely while having fun. Here are some ideas to help you choose safe toys for your child.
You will want to make sure that:
Keep uninflated balloons out of reach and throw away all broken balloons. More children have choked or suffocated on uninflated or broken balloons than on any other type of toy.
