This Month Be Aware of Toys and Eye Safety

Holiday season is almost here which means toys and presents. Adoring parents enjoy treating the children to the coolest toys to start off the New Year.
It is important that family members tell others about the restrictions about eye safety and choosing toys. Injuries with unsafe toys often take place, sometimes causing damaged eyes.

What are some tips to guard children from toy related harm?

  1. Remember, age suitable toys only! Be careful not to allow little children to use toys and games intended for older children.

  2. Check that the toy is well made and avoid toys with dangerous corners. Make sure stick toys such as bats or pony sticks are rounded on the end.

  3. Be careful not to let small kids play without supervision.

  4. Promote eye safety by discarding any toys or games with jagged or staggered edges or catapult launchers.

Before you dish out that popular toy or game that your child has been itching for, take a few moments to read toy safety guidelines. The holidays are a great time for creating special moments with your family members, not the emergency room doctor. Wishing you a happy and safe holiday season.
