December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month, so we had tips each day to keep the little ones in your life safe this holiday season.
Make sure you check all of the gifts your kids get for age, skill level, and developmental level before they play with them.
Look for toy labels that say ASTM, which means it met the American Society for Testing and Materials safety standards.
If you give sports equipment, give protective gear with it, like a skateboard with a helmet.
AblePlay can help you choose toys that appeal to different senses like sound, movement, and texture with research and reviews.
Be careful with balloons, which kids can choke or suffocate on when they break and deflate.
Throw away plastic wrapping after gifts are opened, which can be a dangerous for little ones.
Always supervise battery charging and read the warnings on chargers to prevent burns or electric shock.
