At some point, most people will need to buy a toy for a new baby. It may be your own child or the child of someone that you know. It is important to get a safe toy for the new baby.
There are a lot of choices in stores today. Some toys will be bright and colorful. Others will have little pieces. You need to make sure that you buy a toy that is safe for the new baby.
The front of the box will tell you what age the toy is for. The words may say "eighteen months and older." This means that the toy is for a child who is older than eighteen months. The word "birth" or the number zero means that toy is for a baby that has just been born. You need to check the age range on the toy that you buy. Don't buy a toy that is too old for the child.
Toys should not have any rough edges or points. Look for toys that are soft. If you can, run your hand over the toy to see how it feels. If you don't like it, move on to something else.
