Summary

Play is a natural activity for children that provides opportunities to learn and grow physically, mentally, and socially. These two booklets offer toy selection advice from the government agency charged with protecting the public against unreasonable risks of injury associated with consumer products. The first booklet outlines toy choices for: (1) young infants (birth to 6 months); (2) older infants (7 to 12 months); (3) young toddlers (1 year); (4) older toddlers (2 years); and (5) preschoolers (3, 4 and 5 years). The second booklet outlines toy choices for: (1) primary school children (6, 7, and 8 years); and (2) older school children (9 through 12 years). The abilities and interests sections in each booklet list physical, mental, and social abilities and interests for each age that are relevant to toy selection. The toy list sections give toy suggestions in six major categories, with subcategories under each to help in finding a particular toy including: (1) all toys (general toys); (2) active play; (3) manipulative play; (4) make-believe play; (5) creative play; and (6) learning play. Specific information is presented on the major areas of consideration for toy safety for each age grouping. (SD)
