A toy injury sends a kid to the ER every 3 minutes

Interesting study that showed that toy-related injuries increased by a whopping 40% from 1990 to 2011. The big culprits were riding toys like scooters, but for younger kids ingesting toy parts are a huge issue too. Please be safe when buying gifts this year – read the label and supervise your kids in an age-appropriate way!

    1. That is true! Hard to keep them separated in that case I am sure.
