Five Tips To Buy Stuffed Toys
Stuffed Toys are warm and cuddly and easy to handle. But how safe is it for your child? Here are a few tips you should keep in mind while buying a soft toy for your little one.
- Make sure that the toy does not have small objects like buttons or beads sewn onto them. Babies can easily pull them of and there is a risk of swallowing.
- Ensure that the Toy is wire-free. Even a small wire will hurt your child.
- Check for the seams. They should be strong and should not rip off easily so that the stuffing remains intact.
- Look for a washable toy to avoid dust and germs. These fuzzy pals can become dirty very soon.
- Avoid buying stuffed toys with long hair for babies. Little ones have a habit of putting things in their mouth, more so when they are teething. The hair going into their mouth is not a very hygienic and healthy option.
