January,2007 School Registration Toys and Tots Too many stories in the news have come out about paint containing lead on many toys in all price ranges. As the gatekeeper of your home, you need as always to be careful about what ends up under the tree on Christmas morning. To learn about the toys that have been recalled, an excellent website is Consumer Product Safety Commission’s www.cpsc.gov. A toy does not have to contain lead to be dangerous. Give a toy only if it is age appropriate. The little match book cars are in no way safe for a toddler who still may put things in his mouth. For some toys, even if they are marked in your child’s age range, your baby will still need you to play together with him so he can fully benefit from the toy. So be the best parent you can be and take the time to keep informed about safety.
