Health Tip: Storing Toys

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.
