A Safe Toy

For Ruby Tuesday, I share here an Ultraman toy which belongs to my nephew, Fatih, 6 years old. I think it can be a good example of safe and fun toy. This Ultraman is unbreakable and very flexible; you can create various interesting poses, hehehe.
If you’re looking for safe toys for your kids, here are the shopping tips :

Under 3 years oldKids under 3 have a tendency to put everything in their mouths. Avoid buying toys for older children which may have little pieces that pose a choking danger.
Never let children of any age play with broken balloons because of the choking danger.
Avoid marbles, balls, and games with balls that have a diameter of 1.75 inches or less. These products also pose a choking hazard to young children.
Children at this age still like pulling and twisting toys. Find toys that are well-made with strongly secured eyes, noses and other parts.
Avoid toys that have sharp edges and points.

Ages 3 through 5Avoid toys that are made from thin, brittle plastic that might easily break into small pieces or leave rough edges.
Look for household art materials, including crayons and paint sets, marked with the designation "ASTM D-4236." This means the product has been reviewed by a toxicologist and, if necessary, labeled with warning information.
Teach older children to keep their toys away from their younger brothers and sisters.

Ages 6 through 12For all children, adults should check toys periodically for fracture and potential hazards. Damaged or dangerous toys should be repaired or thrown away.
If buying a toy gun, be sure the barrel, or the entire gun, is brightly colored so that it's not mistaken for a real gun.
If you buy a bicycle for any age child, buy a helmet too, and make sure the child wears it.
Teach all children to put toys away when they're ended playing so they don't fall on them.
