Were you ever injured while playing with a toy as a kid? Whether you fell off your bike and scraped your knee or hurt your eye with a flying object from a toy, you are not alone. Toy injuries are common. In fact, over 250,000 children suffered toy-related injuries in 2014 alone. Some injuries are minor and don’t require a trip to the emergency room. But other injuries can cause serious harm.
Kids may suffer a concussion if they fall off their bike while not wearing a helmet. Toddlers may choke on a small part from a toy designed for older children. That’s why it’s important to follow toy safety recommendations to avoid injuries. By choosing age-appropriate toys and requiring your child to wear a helmet, you reduce your child’s risk of injury. After all, toys should be fun for children. Toys shouldn’t be dangerous or cause harm. For information on toy-related injuries to children, check out our infographic below.
