Is Your Child’s Toy Dangerous?

As the holiday shopping season nears, A recent survey conducted by Wakefield Research on behalf of The Toy Association found that an alarming 96% of parents do not follow a toy’s age grading level when purchasing toys.

The age-grading on a toy isn’t related to how smart a child is or merely a suggestion — it’s based on the developmental abilities of kids at a given age and the specific features of a toy. When children play with a toy above their age grade, they might misuse the toy and get hurt.

Survey results also indicated 34% of toy-buying parents don’t know that fake toys – which might be sold on major online marketplaces by unverified third-party sellers – are not always tested for safety and could pose safety risks if purchased. Legitimate toys sold by responsible sellers comply with more than 100 federal standards and tests to ensure children’s safety. www.playsafe.org
