HealthierMe: Buying Safe Toys for the Holidays

Posted: Updated:

  Toys are on a lot of people's shopping lists, but you want to make sure the Christmas present is safe.

  Sanford Health Child safety expert, Bobbi Paper say people should treat toys like food. She says you need to read the labels. She says you might be surprised by what you find when you look at the back of a toy or product.

   Paper says a great example of that is a package of PlayDo.  It says it is for ages 2 years and up, but on the back it cautions that it contains wheat.

  Most toys give you an age suggestion, but you also have to think about where the toy will be used. You do not want toys or pillows in an infant's crib.

  Parents need to be aware of hidden choking hazards.
