Research Toys Before You Buy

With the lead scare in toys this past year, coupled withe numerous recalls, be sure you check out any toys before you purchase this year. Toy Hazard Recalls can be searched quickly at the Consumer Product Safety Commission website. Take just a brief moment scan the list. This will save or avoid any embarrassment should an item you are giving be on the list - and the recipients parents will not have to return or destroy the item. From toys for toddlers to teen & even toys/games adults would use, like the guitar pictured below. ImagiPlay of Colorado has a recall list multiple learning toys.

Are you checking the list? Checking it twice?!
