The holiday season has already arrived and Christmas shopping is in full force. Every December, is Safe Toys and Gifts month. This was designed to educate people about the dangers of certain toys. Parents and people who give gifts should be very aware that some of the toys they may pick out can potentially harm a child. Although many manufacturers are supposed to have guidelines to provide people with "safe" toys, sometimes these are not fool proof. Anytime you shop for a gift, regardless of what your child may want, please keep their safety first. CHOOSE TOYS THAT ARE:
- Flame resistant
- Washable fabric
- Lead free if paint is included
- Non-toxic art materials
- Crayons that have been evaluated by the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM D-4326, should be labeled on the toy)
