Fun and Safe Toys for the Holidays

Holiday season is upon us which means toys and presents. Well intentioned aunts and uncles delight in treating the young ones to the latest toys to start off the New Year.
It is important that family members learn and relay to others the restrictions about toys and eye safety. Accidents with unsafe toys often take place, sometimes causing damage to eyes, or even blindness.

Below are some guidelines to safeguard kids from toy related injury:

  1. When purchasing a toy, check that it is suitable for the child's age. Be careful not to allow young siblings to use toys and games meant for older siblings.

  2. Check that the toy is well made and avoid toys with dangerous edges. Make sure toys with a handle such as bats or brooms have rounded ends.

  3. Don't let small kids play unsupervised.

  4. Protect little eyes by steering clear of any toys that have points, spikes, rods or plastic or wooden missiles, commonly found in war-themed toys.

Before you purchase the toy that your child really wants, take a few moments to read eye safety precautions for toys and games. Anyone who has ever watched ''A Christmas Story'' should have learned that already. Wishing you a happy and safe holiday season.
