This Month Consider Toys and Eye Safety


Holiday season is right around the corner which means Erector Sets for some, and Barbie dolls for others. Adoring family members enjoy treating the kids to the coolest toys to start off the New Year.
The American Optometric Association advises that parents teach relatives about the rules about toy safety and vision. Mishaps with unsafe toys and games do take place, sometimes causing damaged eyes.


Here are a few tips to protect kids from toy related injury:


  1. When purchasing a toy, make sure it is suitable for the child's age. Don't permit young siblings to play with toys and games intended for older children.

  2. Check that the toy is made of strong, durable material and that there are no rough corners. Make sure toys with a handle such as swords or pony sticks are smooth on the end.

  3. Keep an eye on young kids during playtime.

  4. Protect little eyes by tossing out any toys that have sharp or jagged pieces or projectiles.


Before you dish out the new toy that your child has been pleading with you for, take a moment to read toy safety guidelines. Anyone who has ever watched ''A Christmas Story'' should have learned that already. Happy Holidays.
