    Safety Tips For Buying Toys For Kids

    Choosing a toy that will brighten your baby's face is fun, but it's essential to keep safety in mind too. Here are the few safety tips which you must ensure before buying a toy for your kid:

    Avoid toys with sharp points and edges.Put toys intended for older kids out of reach of babies and toddlers.Kids love to yank and pull apart toys, so choose sturdy toys that don't have loose, moving parts that can easily come off.Buy age-appropriate toys. Read the label, and if it's not recommended for children under a certain age, then don't buy it for your baby.

    Reduce choking risk by skipping any games that include parts that are smaller than 1.75 inches in diameter for babies and toddlers.

    Rule: Any object that can fit into an empty toilet paper roll is a choking hazard and should be out of reach.

    Toys stuffed with any kind of beans or pellets should be avoided, too, because a baby can choke or suffocate if any of those pellets were to spill out of the toy and end up in your baby’s mouth. Stay away from toys with loose string, ribbons, or cords because they can become tangled around your baby's neck. Avoid toy guns or other toys that shoot objects. Buy electric toys that are UL-approved, and never permit a child to use a toy with a frayed cord because it can result in shocks and burns. Beware of toy chests and toy storage containers.
