Toy Safety

As you search for the perfect gifts for your little ones this holiday season, make sure you inspect toys for safety. Start by reading the labels on all stuffed toys, games and dolls. Look for the mark of a nationally recognized testing laboratory like UL or ETL, which means the toy has been tested for safety. Also, make sure your child is the right age to play with the toy.
