5 Unexpected Home Hazards – #2

Age Appropriate Toys and Outdoor Playground Equipment

Young children like nothing more than the company of their big brothers and sisters. Some toys or game pieces which are fine for older children may contain small parts that are choking hazards in a younger child’s hands. Continually watch play areas as well as the back seat of your car, to ensure that no small items are in reach of infants and young children.

Children under the age of three are very likely to put objects in their mouths. If an object is small enough to fit inside a tube of toilet tissue, it is a choking danger to a child.
