Toys are an important part of your baby’s development. To avoid toy-related injuries, make sure all new and used toys meet current safety standards.
- Consider your child’s age when purchasing a toy.
- When buying a toy, check and follow age guidance and other safety information on the toy packaging.
- Make sure your child is physically ready for the toy.
- Select toys that are too large to swallow, too tough to break, and have no small breakable parts, sharp points or edges.
- Toys should be at least 1-1/4 inches by 2-1/2 inches around until your baby is three years old.
- Toys should not have buttons, heads or objects on them that can be pulled off.
