The holidays are right around the corner and we all know what that means, toys and presents. Well intentioned aunts and uncles love treating the children to the latest toys for the holiday season.
It is necessary for family members to learn and relay to relatives some restrictions about eye safety and choosing toys. Accidents involving toys and games can occur, sometimes resulting in blindness.
Here are some tips to protect kids from toy related harm:
When purchasing a gift, check that it is developmentally suitable. Be careful not to allow young children to play with toys meant for older brothers or sisters.
Check that the toy is made of strong, durable material and avoid toys with rough corners. Make sure long-handled toys such as bats or brooms have smooth and round ends.
Try not to let small kids play without supervision.
Promote eye safety awareness by discarding any toys or games with pointed tips or projectiles.
Before you buy the latest toy or game that your child has been pleading with you for, spend a few minutes to look over toy safety guidelines. The holidays are a great time for creating special moments with your loved ones, not the ER doctor. Happy Holidays.
