Want to buy a toy for your kid? Or is it some other kid whom you want to gift a toy? Not sure how to buy the best thing for the kids? Well here we are to tell you how you can choose for the best toy in the market. Since the choices are many, decision making could be difficult and you could get in trouble.
- Read the label on the toys ALWAYS
Reading the label would save you from the trouble of choosing the wrong toy for your kid and it could waste your money too. Telling you from the latest personnel experience, that no matter how wise your child is, if you have not selected the toy according to the age label, you could not only waste your money but your child could get injured as well.
- Think large
This point also links to the previous one. If your child is young and has a habit of putting all the things in her mouth, going for the small sized toy items is going to get you in serious trouble. The toys labelled with the choking hazard, should not be bought for the kids under three years. Specially Legos are what got me into trouble for my little one.
- Avoid buying such toys that shoot in the air and are pointy
When you are trying to buy toys for the kids, make sure that you are not buying the toys that are pointy and shoot in the air. These toys are bound to give some kind of injuries and they have the choking issues as well.
- Try buying stuffed toys
Stuffed toys are highly safe and secure toys that can be given to the kids of all ages. When you are buying the stuffed toys, make sure that they are sewn well and the edges are made well and they are not leak able. Still avoid buying the stuffed toys that have loose ribbons and strings. Also try reading the labels that have machine washable option as well.
- Do not buy the sets that have hazardous objects in them
For example, if you want to buy some chemistry set for your kid, you must make sure that the kid is above 12 years to experiment on them. The chemicals in the set could be highly active and dangerous and they could get your child into some serious trouble. Also, do not go for such toys if your kid in not capable of handling them easily.
- Consider the size of the toy as well
You should also consider the size of the toy when making the purchase because too big or too heavy objects could also cause foot injuries. The toys like DJ set for kids and other playable ones should only be given to the kid in adult supervision, once the child learns it all, only then allow them to play with it by themselves.
