The holidays will be here before you know it, which means it’s just the right time to find that perfect present for your child. Be sure to do your research and stay up to date on toy and product recalls to ensure your child’s top toy choice isn’t on this year’s naughty list.
According to Good Housekeeping, the top toys this year will be interactive toys that respond to your child’s touch and voice. Good Housekeeping is a great resource for parents because they use engineers and analysts to check that your child’s toy meets all the safety standards, including the shatter test and pinch point check.

If the toy is deemed unsafe, whether it’s for lead levels, toxicity, choking hazard, or flammability, a recall will be announced and the toy will be taken off the shelves. Here are three toys that made the naughty list this year:
Always make sure the toy is suited to your child’s age and developmental level, doesn’t contain any toxic ingredients, won’t break into small pieces, and won’t overheat. Be sure to read Coker Law’s tips on how to pick a safe, fun toy for your child before you hit the stores.
