Give your angel a toy, and see the beautiful smile…
Any child needs a parent’s watchful eye over them.
We can never leave our children alone or in the hands of unprofessional. We know what can happen in seconds. I’ve heard so many parents say “I’ve just turned my head for a second!”Well, the more natural the toy, the safer your baby is.
Many things can happen with an unattended child and unsafe toys! Avoid that, and be there for your little ones all the time, play with them if you have time, it will put a happy smile on their little faces. Keep kids safe from toxins and injury with the right toys. Not all toys are safe for our babies. Natural toys are a great choice!
Which Kind Of Toys Are Safe For My Child?
According to “Mayo Clinic”, there is no way to know by the appearance that a product is safe. Toys are a great way for children to learn and become good problem solvers. Sometimes, though, our good intentions can lead to a child being cut, bruised, poisoned, shocked, suffocated, or choked by unsafe toys.
I believe you should stick to the simple and safe toys which are also great for encouraging developmental milestones during your baby’s first few months after birth until they become toddlers! When shopping for toys for your little one, make sure you read the labels on the product.
That is very important. The more natural the toys are the better and safer it is for your baby. Look out for labels like ‘Made Safe’ It is one of the most comprehensive designations on the market. Made Safe has a comprehensive Baby&Child: product database.
There are millions and millions of different kinds of toys on the market, but we as parents have to be aware of the fact that not all of them are safe for our little ones.
Most injuries from toys are minor cuts, scrapes, and bruises however, toys can cause serious injury or even death. Children should use them right and in the right way. Avoid toys that shoot objects in the air.
Loud toys can damage a child’s hearing. If you buy any plastic toy, make sure it is sturdy, (some plastic is very thin) and it doesn’t break easily. Toys made of toxic materials can cause poisoning, please avoid it by keeping it away from your little one! Buy natural toys instead.
Any hanging crib toy should be out of the baby’s reach and must be removed when your baby begins to push up on their hands and knees, and start pulling these toys on them.
When checking a toy for a baby or toddler, make sure it’s unbreakable and strong enough to withstand chewing.
Also, make sure it doesn’t have sharp ends or small parts like eyes, wheels, or buttons that can be pulled loose or small ends that can reach the back of the mouth.
Toys should have labels on them, labels should read Non-Toxic. Make sure you don’t buy toys that can cause suffocation or strangulation!
Your child’s safety is very important. Scientists uncover new information, about the chemicals we’re exposed to and their potential links to illness.
Choose The Right Toy For The Right Age
- The Safety of a toy.
- The ability of a child to play with the toy.
- The ability of a child to understand how to use a toy.
- The needs and interests at various levels of a child’s development.
Parents should be aware all the time of the age restriction on toys. Always protect your child, because some toys can be very dangerous to your little one.
Keep toys with small or loose magnets or parts away from them. Monitor the toy first before you give it to your baby to play with. They can easily swallow small parts, which can be dangerous.
Even if your child seems advanced compared with other kids the same age, They shouldn’t use toys that are meant for older kids. The age levels for toys are determined by safety factors, not intelligence or maturity.
Age-appropriate learning is all about adapting to a child’s level of understanding, identifying the readiness of a child to learn, and then following the best-suited method of teaching.
If the toy is determined to be developmentally appropriate for children up to 5 years of age, then the toy must bear the safety warning “Warning: Choking Hazard-small parts.”
Toys Are Great Gifts?
There are so many to choose from! Every time I go into a kiddie’s toy shop, I get more excited than them! Can you believe it! I’m sure many parents feel the same and had the same experience before.
Finding the best gifts for toddlers is not an easy task, but it can also be a lot of fun! When they become older, means they become older, and they actually start playing with toys now!
And you can play with them! Isn’t that sweet? Toddlers start to know also what they want, they do have opinions now, a lot of them!
We all know what happens if they want something and can’t get it! If their toys encourage aggression, they might play more aggressively.
Know your child’s needs and what keeps them calm, loveable, and relaxed.
Children love and adore toys! Look at those little faces the moment you give them a toy! They thank you with the most beautiful smile. Keep them happy and healthy, by giving them the right toys and tons of love!
