Gifts, Toys, and Eye Safety Guidelines


The holidays are just around the corner and we all know what that means, new toys for the kiddies. Well intentioned parents delight in treating the young children with the latest toys for the holidays.
It is necessary for family members to explain to relatives the restrictions about safe and age appropriate toys. Accidents with unsafe toys and games can take place, sometimes resulting in blindness.


Below are a few guidelines to safeguard children from toy related injury:


  1. Only buy gifts which are appropriate for the child's age. Don't permit younger children to use toys intended for older brothers or sisters.

  2. Show children the safe way to play with toys. Before play, if possible check toys for broken or loose pieces.

  3. Keep an eye on little kids while they play.

  4. Promote eye safety awareness by throwing out toys with pointed tips or plastic or wooden missiles, commonly found in war-themed toys.


Before you buy that new toy that your child has been pleading with you for, take a few minutes to read toy safety guidelines. Anyone who has ever watched ''A Christmas Story'' should have learned that already. Avoid a trip to the ER this year and have a joyous holiday.
