Health Tip: Storing Toys

Prevent injuries by putting toys away
(HealthDay News) -- Children's toys should be safely stored to prevent trips and falls, and toy chests regularly inspected to look for potential hazards.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission offers this advice:
When children are finished playing, make sure toys are stored on shelves or in toy chests. Ensure that the toy chest lid stays open, and won't suddenly fall on a child or trap a child in the toy chest. Make sure all toy chests have ventilation holes. Inspect toy chests for sharp edges, or hinges that may pinch little fingers.
