Are You Holiday Shopping for Kids? 3 Important Toy Safety Tips to Know!

Holiday shopping is in full swing! Keep these tips in mind when shopping for kids! 

  1. Choose age-appropriate toys. Read labels! For kids age 3 and younger, avoid toys with small parts, which can be choking hazards. 
  2. Falls from riding toys, skateboards and in-line skates can be deadly. Helmets and safety gear should be worn and sized to fit. 
  3. Magnetic toys are covered by a strong safety standard to prevent magnets from being swallowed. High-powered magnet building and play sets are dangerous. Keep them away from little ones!

Happy Holidays!
