Not all toy hazards can be detected, nor can any toy be completely safe for all children at all times. The unique combination of child, toy, and the way the child uses the toy determines the safety risk. The best safety features of any toy include matching the toy to the child's age and abilities. Adult supervision is important. Although toy companies try to make their toys as safe as possible, it is up to you to make sure your child's play is safe.
Accidents are most likely to occur when:
Make sure your child wears a fitted helmet for all bicycle and skateboard activity and for in-line skating. Provide protective knee and elbow pads and wrist guards, and make sure your child wears them. This helps to minimize in-line skating and skateboard injuries. Set clear rules for in-line skating, bicycle and skateboard riding.
