This Month is Holiday Toys and Eye Safety Month


Holiday season is almost here and we all know what that means, Erector Sets for some, and Barbie dolls for others. Adoring mothers and fathers delight in surprising the little ones with the latest toys to start off the New Year.
It is crucial that parents instruct relatives about some restrictions about toys and eye safety. Accidents with unsafe toys may occur, sometimes causing damage to eyes, or even blindness.


Here are some guidelines to protect children from toy related eye injuries:


  1. Remember, age appropriate toys only! Do not allow younger siblings to play with toys meant for older siblings.

  2. Show children how to use new toys and games. If possible, before allowing children to play, inspect new toys and games for sturdy, safe construction.

  3. Be careful not to let small children play without supervision.

  4. Protect little eyes by tossing out toy or games that have sharp edges or catapult launchers.


Before you buy that new toy or game that your kids have been itching for, spend a moment to look over toy safety guidelines. Anyone who has ever watched ''A Christmas Story'' should have learned that already. Wishing you a happy and safe holiday season.
