Toy Safety Warning

The Texas Department of State Health Services advises consumers to do their homework before buying those toys this holiday season.

It's a part of "Know the Child, Know the Toy."

They released a list of tips for consumers:

  • Select toys to suit the age, abilities, skills and interests of the child. Look for sturdy construction in toys.
  • Do not buy toys with small parts for kids 2 & under.
  • Do not buy toys with magnets for kids 5 & under.
  • Avoid electric toys with heating elements and toys with sharp edges for kids 7 & under.
  • Charging Batteries should be supervised by adults.
  • Discard all plastic wrappings immediately.
