December is Safe Toys & Gifts Month

When it comes to toys and gifts, the excitement and desire to get your children their favorite toys may cause shoppers to forget about safety factors associated with them. Before you make these purchases, it is crucial to remember the following:

  1. Always buy age appropriate toys.  Age ranges on toys aren't just a guide for when you are shopping, they are also there to ensure the safety of the child.  You can read the CPSC's Safe Toy guide for ages 0 - 5 years here.
  2. Be aware of safety recalls.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) maintains a comprehensive list of recalls.  You can access their page here.
  3. After the toy has been opened, make sure you read all of the safety precautions and instructions.
  4. Be cautious when buying the following types of toys for children:  balloons, small balls and toys with other small parts, magnets, and scooters and other riding tools
