With childlike excitement, we are starting to hit the stores this holiday season. The wish lists we have been given cover everything from scooters to Legos and Barbies to iPhones.
Before you fill your buggy, consider these safety tips to keep your younger loved ones safe:
Check the label – Select age-appropriate toys by checking the labels. Little pieces, deflated balloons, and other small items can become a choking hazard for young children.
Get the gear – Make sure you pick up all the safety equipment your riding toys require. When worn correctly, the right-sized helmet, gloves and pads will help keep your young one safe.
Look out for magnets – Small high-powered magnets can be very dangerous for children under 14, but are included in many building sets.
Participate in play – Supervision is the key to avoiding most injuries from toys.
Injuries to children are costly in many ways, including emotionally and financially, impacting not only the child but the caregivers as well.
