December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month

What is Safe Toys and Gifts Month? During the December holidays, as well as the rest of the year, safety for toys and gifts is paramount. Be aware of age appropriate toys, choking hazards, and any possible recalls of purchased items.

Books are great gift ideas, allowing the reader to have fun and adventures. Check your local library for books of different genres and reading levels. Plush toys, building blocks, and STEM kits are also good gift ideas. However, make sure your purchase is age appropriate, avoiding small or dangerous parts for the very young. The American Academy of Pediatrics gives reviews and recommendations for all ages of children.
