Health Tip: Storing Toys
Prevent injuries by putting toys away

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Children's toys should be safely stored to prevent trips and falls, and toy chests regularly inspected to look for potential hazards.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission offers this advice:

  • When children are finished playing, make sure toys are stored on shelves or in toy chests.
  • Ensure that the toy chest lid stays open, and won't suddenly fall on a child or trap a child in the toy chest.
  • Make sure all toy chests have ventilation holes.
  • Inspect toy chests for sharp edges, or hinges that may pinch little fingers.
