The holidays are upon us, and we all know what that means: time to get shopping. There are nearly 3 billion toys sold annually in the United States. Giving children the right gifts can spur imagination and development. Getting the wrong gifts can sometimes do more harm than good.
According to Stanford Children’s Health, toy-related injuries send tens of thousands of younger children to the hospital every year. Most frequently, the cause can be traced back to giving young children toys meant for older kids.
With so many toy and gift options available, it is important for gift givers to ensure they select age-appropriate and safe options for younger children. Here are some basic guidelines to consider when selecting the right present.
Gifting a toy to a child is one of the most rewarding experiences, topped only by seeing them enjoy that gift for years to come. This holiday season, let’s ensure that safety is the top priority.
