Choosing Safe Toys For Your Children

Nowadays children have a wide range of selection for toys, some of them are good and some are bad. Each time watching TV news, we sometimes hear information or reviews of toy such as bad quality, unsafe toys for children. Many people wonder that how do these unsafe toys can get to the shelves in the stores, supermarket and many more. Do the producers understand or know that they are possibly dangerous? Are there any quality control measures to ensure the toys are safe and prevent producing unsafe toys to children?

I am thinking about one story about a mother with three young girls. One day, I visited her home; I saw photos of a boy on the walls and asked her who he was. She said me he was her son who had kicked the bucket when a toy stalled out in his throat when he was three years old. His dad had attempted to expel the toy stop, but his endeavors were unprofitable and the boy died. I was horrified and understood how much they suffered from simple toys.

We can make attempting to remove any unsafe toys that can danger to our kids and to people around them. In the birthday party or other occasions, your kids will get many toys as gifts from their relatives and friends. How could you know that these toys from presents or inside your house are not dangerous for your children?

One suggestion is to pay attention to age of toys. They appear on the packages, the producers write age that is suitable for each age. You can think that your kids is mature and they can play with all toys that are made for adults, however, toys with small and removable parts can cause of wounds or suffocation. Some little children can place these little parts in their ears, nose and mouth. Thus you are the best judge to know that what toys are fitting for them.

If the broken toys, you should throw them right away. And inside the toy box be mindful of things. If there are tiny or broken piece of toys, you have to clean them out.

Here are some suggestions for choosing children’s toys:

1.    Pick age-appropriate toys

Most toys reveal a sticker for "recommended age". However you should be realistic about abilities and maturity level when picking up toys. For example, the projectiles toys will not be suitable for children under age 4 and even kids are 6 year olds are not mature enough to handle them.

2.    Choose toys that are new and well-made

The used toys can be dangerous for children. Thus you should check all toys that are passed down from older relatives, your friends and more and new toys. Check for batteries, buttons, ribbons and plastic parts that could be snapped off. For stuffed animal toys, make sure that they are securely sewn on. Parts on the toys must be securely attached. Don't choose the toys that have sharp edges the paint is peeling.

3.    Think big toys

When your little children are 3 years old, choosing toy parts are bigger than their mouth to prevent the possibility of choking. You try fitting a toy through a toilet paper roll; you will know whether a toy poses a choking risk. If a toy can't fit inside the cylinder, it's safe.

4.    Don't allow your kids play with the balloons. 

The kids love balloons that are cheerful party decorations but they are the main cause of toy-related choking fatalities in little kids. When children eat or swallow them, uninflated balloons make children impossible to breathe.

5.    Skip toys with small magnets

The magnets are hidden home hazard. Many toys use small magnets and they can fall out of the toy and children can swallow them. These magnets can be attracted to each other through intestinal walls and make blockages.
