6. Toy Buying Tips

  • Read the label. Warning labels give important information about how to use a toy and what ages the toy is safe for.
  • Make sure all toys and parts are larger than your child’s mouth to prevent choking.
  • Avoid toys that shoot objects into the air. They can cause serious eye injuries or choking.
  • Look for stuffed toys that are well made. Make sure all the parts are on tight and seams and edges are secure. It should also be machine washable. Take off any loose ribbons or strings to avoid strangulation. Avoid toys that have small bean-like pellets or stuffing that can cause choking or suffocation if swallowed.
  • Be careful when buying crib toys. Soft objects, loose bedding, or any objects that could increase the risk of entrapment, suffocation, or strangulation should be kept out of the crib. Source: https://www.healthychildren.org/English/safety-prevention/at-home/Pages/How-to-Buy-Safe-Toys.aspx
