Countless toys will be purchased and given to children soon – parents, take some time and learn some toy safety guidelines to ensure your little ones are protected from potential harm from dangerous toys or toy parts.

You can get Safety Guides for Toys from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The important of learning now what to consider for a toy for your child are these facts; 262,300 children in the US were treated in emergency rooms for toy-related injuries in 2011, 45 percent of the toy-related injuries were to the head or face. Join Safe Kids in keeping your children safe.
