Prevent Blindness Gives Tips for Purchasing Safe Toys and Gifts for Children


Prevent Blindness is offering tips to help make sure gifts are safe for children as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimated in 2013 that hospital emergency rooms across the country treated 265,700 toy-related injuries compared to 265,000 the previous year.

According to Prevent Blindness, the most commonly injured part of the body is the head and face area, with the most common injuries being lacerations, abrasions or contusions. In 2013, the top three specifically identified toys associated with the most estimated injuries for all ages were non-motorized scooters, toy ball and toy vehicles.

Prevent Blindness offers a series of tips for ECPs and parents about children’s toy safety that ADG&A thinks you should consider posting to your Facebook page or blog.  It can be found at preventblindness.org/safe-toy-checklist.
