Toy Safety

November 25th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

The Florida Public Interest Research Group is once again warning parents about dangerous toys. This year, the watchdog sited more than a half dozen items, including Pony Land Scented Pony, Silly Fish Squirters, The Red Plastic Super Car, the Halloween Skull earring, and the Littlest Pet shop among others. The toys present chocking hazards to small children, are made with toxic chemicals or lead.

Brad Ashwell says with a tight economy, parents should look to quality, not quantity.

For parents who are struggling this year, most of them are, I would say they really need to shop around and be more careful than ever. The Representative made a good point, you know, sometimes its better that they get one expensive toy rather than a bunch of little ones, because often the little ones are cheaper. They use cheaper materials, cheaper paint, they will often contain led.

Parents can check for more toys and tips on what and what not to look for on the groups web site. www.toysafety.net
