How to make sure you’re buying safe toys for kids
December is Safe Toys and Gifts Awareness Month
We all love to spoil the kids in our lives and give them toys that will delight and engage them. The last thing we want is for a child to end up with an injury, or worse, because the toy wasn't appropriate for them. It's estimated that more than 200,000 children in the US alone are treated for toy-related injuries in emergency rooms across the country each year. Teens are often involved in accidents with products like electric scooters and hoverboards, but airway obstructions caused by much more innocent-looking toys are common among younger children.
To make sure that the gifts you buy this year don't pose a risk to any little ones, click through this gallery for the ultimate guide to safe toy shopping.
