When it comes to your child's safety, you want to make sure they are playing with toys that are age-appropriate and safe. To ensure your child is playing safely with their wooden toys, there are a few steps you can take. First, use a toy box with a lid that stays open in any position, so that it doesn't fall on your child's head or hands while they are playing. This will help you identify any potential dangers, such as suffocation.
Additionally, be careful with small, loose, or broken toys as they can easily get stuck in a child's ear, nose, or throat. It is also important to keep all toys with small parts out of your child's reach until they are at least 5 years old. When selecting toys for your child, make sure they are age-appropriate and safe. Look for damaged or broken parts, chips on wooden toys, loose eyes or small parts on the wrists, and exposed cables on electrical toys. Additionally, check the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website (www.cpsc.gov) for any recalls on the toy you are considering buying. When it comes to wooden toys specifically, My Happy Helpers has a wide range of Australian wooden toys that adapt to the wants and needs of your little one.
Whether it's learning towers, kitchen accessories or wooden games for your toddler, you can find something that is both age-appropriate and safe for your child. Finally, consider your child's capabilities before buying a toy. For example, an indoor wooden slide for children may be suitable for some older children but not for younger children. The best choice you can make for your child is to select toys that are safe and appropriate for their age and development.
