Each time I hear that there's another toy recall, I think to myself - you have to be kidding! How can these dangerous toys even get to the shelves and at your fingertips of our curious children in the first place? Did the makers understand that these were possibly damaging? Exist quality control measures to ensure this doesn't happen?
I personally know a sweet lady who is a parent of three young girls. After i was visiting with her one day, I noticed images of just a little boy around the walls and asked who it was. She told me it had been her son who had died at three whenever a toy got stuck in his throat. His father had tried desperately to get rid of the lodged toy, but his attempts were fruitless, and the child succumbed. I had been horrified and may only imagine just how much both of them experienced this sad experience.
It is not easy to look at our children every minute, but we can make every make an effort to remove any toys that could do harm from those that they play with every day. Your children also may receive toys as presents from well-meaning members of the family and friends for birthdays and holidays. How will you be sure that the toys you have in your house are safe for your children?
Another suggestion is to focus on age tips about toys. They are put on the packages for a reason. It may seem your son or daughter now has wrinkles enough to experience with a toy that's made for an older child, but toys with small or removable parts can cause injuries or asphyxiation. Some older children also still like to put things within their nose, ears and mouths, so you are the most useful judge to know what is suitable for them.
If a toy is broken, it is advisable to throw it away immediately. Be aware of what is in your toy box. If tiny or broken bits of toys are present, clean them out.
If your little one gets to be a toy like a present or else you have purchased one which they wanted, you should attempt hard to break it (avoid them while watching child, however). If you're able to yank around the stuffed animals eyes and they're loose, they might come off and obtain lodged within the child's throat. Try to think of ways in which your son or daughter may use it and test to see if the toy will break apart. You can also test all toy gifts ever since they were not given with the intention to harm the child. It is best safe than sorry.
