Need the Perfect Toy in a Hurry? 10 Toy Safety Tips From Santa’s Elves!

Buying the perfect toy can be a daunting task, especially if the little one on your list isn’t your own. When in doubt, here are 10 safety tips to help make sure you don’t wrap an accident-waiting-to-happen this season.

  • No small parts for anyone under the age of 3.
  • Make sure plush toys have secure parts (e.g., eyes, noses, buttons).
  • Avoid sharp edges.
  • Think twice about projectiles.
  • Look for washable and non-flammable.
  • Noises should not hurt a child’s ears and not drive a parent insane.
  • Don’t forget the helmet to go with the bike, skates or scooter.
  • Choose arm and knee pads when wheels are concerned.
  • Age appropriate first, interest second.
