Safe Toy Make For A Merry Christmas
By Ron King, Fri Dec 9th

Do you have a toddler on your gift list? If so, remember thatsmall children and infants automatically put items in theirmouths.

Inspect For Safety

Safety is the first thing you should check. Toys with smallparts are always suspect. Parts small enough to fit into a tot'smouth can be a choking hazard.

Plush toys are ideal for small children, but check theconstruction. If the eyes, nose, or other small features are nottightly secured, these items can come off when a childinevitably chews on it.

Any toy with a sharp edge is a potential safety hazard. A childwalking or running with such a toy can fall and be injured byit. Again, tots like to put things in their mouths, so sharpedges could cut their lips, gums or tongues.

Any Electric Or Heating Elements?

Only children 8 years of age or over should receive electrictoys with heating elements. Don't be tempted to buy these for ayounger child just because they would be fun to play with.

Find Out What's Been Recalled

Before setting out on a toy shopping trip, find out which havebeen recalled. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission cantell you at www.cpsc.gov or call toll-free (800) 638-2772. Youmight be surprised to find that some of the leading toy makershave had toys recalled. Some toys on the recall list include:

* Woody Dolls (distributed by Walt Disney Parks and


Resorts) --the doll's buttons can detach and pose a choking hazard foryoung children.

* Little People Animal Sounds Farm (by Fisher-Price) -- thescrews on stall doors can come off, posing a choking oraspiration hazard. One child aspirated a screw into his lungs,requiring emergency surgery.

* Drumsticks sold with toy drum sets (by Battat Incorporated) --the end piece of the drumstick handle can break off, and thescrew at the end of the drumstick can detach. Both pose achoking hazard.

Remove Dangerous Packaging Immediately

Watch for twist-ties that keep toys secure in their packages.They keep the toy looking good on the shelf, but become a hazardwhen the toy is removed from the package. Also check oldersiblings' toys for them. They need to be properly discarded toavoid any danger to a younger child. On Christmas morning, youcan eliminate a suffocation hazard to your tot by immediatelythrowing away all plastic wrappings from the toys.

Do Your Research

Popular toys that children are clamoring for are hard to resist.Just do your research first. Keep the holidays happy and safefor your children
