This past year was a rough one for parents, as dozens of toys were recalled on the market for not meeting safety requirements. Many of these toys contain levels of toxic materials such as cadium and lead. Yikes!
Rather than shunning all toys, take an educated look around your backyard. We just discovered a wonderful toy site maintained by parent advocacy groups on toy safety. Check out Healthytoys.org to learn if your toys are safe. You can search your toy by brand, name, or type.
