The holidays are right around the corner and that means toys and presents. Adoring mothers and fathers delight in treating the young ones with the coolest toys to start off the new year.
It is crucial that parents explain to relatives some rules about eye safety and choosing toys. Injuries with unsafe toys can occur, sometimes causing damaged eyes.
Below are a few tips to protect kids from toy related eye injuries:
1.Only buy gifts which are developmentally suitable. Don't allow younger children to handle toys made for older children.
2.Demonstrate to children how to play safely. Prior to play carefully check new toys and games for broken or loose pieces.
3.Don't let small kids play without supervision.
4.Prevent eye injuries by tossing out any toys with sharp or jagged pieces or plastic or wooden missiles, commonly found in war-themed toys.
Before buying the new game that your child has been begging for, take a few minutes to read toy safety guidelines. The holidays are a great time for creating special moments with your loved ones, not the emergency room doctor. Happy Holidays to all.
