Toy and Product Safety

Buying Guidelines for Safe and Fun Toys
Toy-related injuries send tens of thousands of children to the emergency room each year. Most injuries occur when parents give their children toys meant for older children.
Parents: Check Toys for Lead
If you have toys that have been recalled, don’t throw them out. Take them back to the store where they came from.
Toy Safety--Identifying High-Risk Situations
Small toys or toys with small removal parts are not appropriate for children ages 3 and younger.
Toy Safety--Injury Statistics and Incidence Rates
Almost half of all toy-related injuries occur to the head and face area. Most riding toy-related injuries occur when a child falls from a toy.
Toy Safety--Prevention
To make sure a toy is appropriate for your young child, check the label. In general, most toys on the market today are safe.
