So many toys - so little time. What you purchase for your
youngsters this holiday season could make the difference between a safe celebration and
potential injury. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, 13 tots died in
1997 from accidents related to dangerous toys. Another 141,000 wound up in hospitals.
Your best defense is good common sense.Read labels and
steer clear from toys that have sharp edges or small removable parts. The American Academy
of Pediatrics and other child-advocates also offer additional precautions that may not
have occurred to you. Santa would approve.
