Choosing Safe Toys for your Children

Choosing Safe Toys for your Children

It is a rare child who does not love playing with toys. These products are not only fun; playing is a way for children to explore the world and develop important mental skills. The benefits are not only for kids, of course – shopping for children’s gifts can even be fun for adults. While enjoying all of the fun, however, it is important that adults always keep their thoughts on safety.

Selecting a safe and age-appropriate toy for a child in your life should not be difficult, but there are certain tips you will want to keep in mind. Unfortunately, even following reasonable safety measures is not always enough to keep children safe from defective and dangerous toys. If your child has been hurt by a poorly made or mislabeled product, call a Charleston personal injury lawyer from the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 to learn more about your legal options.


While selecting a toy or other children’s product, you can reduce the risk of potential injuries by following a few simple safety tips:

  • Pay attention to age limits. Toys should be clearly labeled with recommended ages; if they are not, it is best not to take the chance of buying them anyway.
  • Even if a toy is recommended for the right age, it may have certain features or defects that can be dangerous. Do not give an infant or toddler any toy with small pieces that can be easily broken off, or toys that are themselves small enough to be swallowed.
  • Check out the materials used. Any toy you give a child should be non-toxic and flame-resistant, especially if the child is young enough to chew on his or her toys. Paints and crayons should be marked with “ASTM D-4236,” meaning they have been tested by the American Society for Testing and Materials.

If your child has been hurt by a flawed product despite your safety efforts, South Carolina personal injury law allows you to file a claim against the party responsible. Our Charleston child injury attorneys can provide further information.
