December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month
Prevent Blindness America has declared December as Safe Toys and Gifts Awareness Month. The group encourages everyone to consider if the toys they wish to give suits the age and individual skills and abilities of the individual child who will receive it, especially for infants and children under age three. Too often, accidents involving children and toys occur and may result in eye injuries. There are three important ways people can protect their child’s eyes from injuries while playing with toys; only buy toys meant for their age, show them how to use their toys safely, keep an eye on them when they play.
