Smartivity wants parents to make informed choices about the toys they bring into the home.
When selecting toys, parents should keep the following safety tips in mind:
While making purchase:
Check and follow age guidance and other safety information on packaging (age grading is based mostly on safety and not on how smart or dexterous a child may be).
Avoid toys with small parts for children under three (3) years of age and those who mouth objects. This is among the most important things consumers can do to ensure safe play.
Inspect toys at the store, looking for sturdy parts and tightly secured joints.
Make sure that battery compartment-locking mechanisms are in place and that batteries are securely enclosed.
For children under 18 months of age, avoid toys with strings, straps or cords longer than twelve (12) inches.
Avoid toys with sharp points or rough edges, especially for younger children.
Ideally, you should always shop at a reputable retailer you know and trust
Once the packages are opened:
Read instructions carefully; save directions, and assembly hardware.
Demonstrate the right way to use the toy or game and explain to your child the importance of proper use.
Dispose of all unnecessary toy packaging and gift wrap as soon as possible (piles of discarded gift wrap can conceal sharp objects and/or the edges of hard plastic packaging that can cut small fingers).
Store toys safely in an easily accessible storage bin; lidded toy storage should be non-locking and have special safety features such as air holes, spring-loaded hinges and clearances at the hinges to make sure little fingers won’t get caught.
Batteries can pose serious, unique hazards to children: toys for young children are required to have a locking mechanism to prevent a child’s access to them.
When inserting or replacing batteries, consumers need to be certain to re-engage the locking mechanism and never leave fresh or spent batteries out where they are accessible to children. Coin cell batteries can be especially dangerous if swallowed, so exercise vigilance.
At parties and other festive events, be sure to supervise children when latex balloons are present, as un-inflated balloons and broken pieces can pose a choking hazard.
