Toys are the commonest among children. The bright, colorful and attractive ones entice kids more than anything else. But how good are plastic toys for kids? The moment they put the toys on the mouth, they are in danger. The chemical known as phthalates found in soft plastic toys are poisonous for children. These toys do not contain adequate labeling and thus the customers of are not aware of its danger.


Exposure to chemicals in plastic toys could harm the child's liver and kidneys. It could also disrupt normal hormonal development in children. So it is the duty of parents to guard their children from such harmful toys. Read the label to find the contents before purchasing the toys. Children below 3 years of age should not be given toys that have small parts that can break or fall off. These small parts may choke the child to death. Even noise levels could harm children. Eighty-five decibels is the maximum volume limit. Some toys contain lead that could damage the brain.


So, parents beware of poisonous toys and protect your precious children. Vigilance is important.
