As an added safety measure, an article by Pregnancy, Birth and Baby urges buyers to inspect the size and shape, materials and fillings, strings, and batteries of the toys you plan to buy. Take your time in choosing the right ones so you ensure your gift becomes a source of entertainment and growth, and not danger.
