Holiday season is upon us and we all know what that means, presents. Adoring aunts and uncles delight in treating the children to the newest toys for the holiday season.
It is necessary for family members teach others the rules about safe and age appropriate toys. Mishaps involving toys do take place, occasionally causing damaged vision.
How can adults protect young children toy related injury?
When purchasing a toy, check that it is developmentally suitable. Do not permit younger children to use toys made for older siblings.
Demonstrate to children the safe use of toys. Before play, if possible carefully check new toys and games for sharp or pointed edges.
Supervise little children during playtime.
Prevent eye injuries by discarding toys that have dangerous, pointed edges or firing projectiles like BB guns.
Before buying that popular toy that your child has been itching for, take a moment to review toy safety guidelines. Anyone who has ever watched ''A Christmas Story'' should have learned that already. Happy Holidays.
