Every time I hear that there is another toy recall, I think to myself - you have got to be kidding! How do these dangerous toys even arrive at the shelves and at your fingertips in our curious children to begin with? Did the makers understand that these were potentially harmful? Exist qc measures to ensure this doesn't happen?

Personally, i know a sweet lady who is a mother of three young girls. After i was visiting with her one day, I noticed images of a little boy on the walls and asked who it was. She told me it had been her son who'd died at age three when a toy got stuck in the throat. His father had tried desperately to remove the lodged toy, but his attempts were fruitless, and also the child succumbed. I was horrified and can only imagine how much both of them suffered from this sad experience.

It is difficult to watch our kids every minute, but we can make every attempt to remove any toys that could do harm from those that they play with every single day. Your kids also may receive toys as presents from well-meaning members of the family and friends for birthdays and holidays. How will you make certain that toys you have in your house are safe for your children?

Another suggestion would be to focus on age tips about toys. They're placed on the packages for a reason. You may think your son or daughter is old enough to play having a toy that's designed for an older child, but toys with small or removable parts can cause injuries or asphyxiation. Some older kids also still prefer to put things within their nose, ears and mouths, so you are the best judge to be aware what is suitable for them.

If a toy is broken, it is best to dispose of it immediately. Be aware of what's in your toy box. If tiny or broken pieces of toys are present, clean them out.

If your little one receives a toy like a present or else you have purchased one which they wanted, you should try difficult to break it (avoid them while watching child, however). If you're able to yank around the stuffed toys eyes and they are loose, they might come off and get lodged in the child's throat. Try to consider ways that your son or daughter may use it and test to find out if the toy will break apart. You can also test all toy gifts ever since they were not given with the intention to harm the kid. It is better to be safe than sorry.
