Toy Safety

Public Awareness Campaign


The Potentially Hazardous Toys List
Source: National Association of State Public Interest Research Groups (PIRGs)

Toys bring our kids lots of happiness, and we're all familiar with the face of a child who has just received a favorite toy. But all too often, an inappropriate toy in the hands of a young child turns happiness into anguish. But this holiday season, you can tell which toy manufacturers have been naughty or nice—by reviewing the Potentially Hazardous Toys List compiled by the U.S. PIRG, the federation of state Public Interest Research Group (PIRG). To access PIRG's most recent toy safety information online, click here. For a downloadable, complete listing of of PIRG Safety Standards for 2006, click here (PDF file).

In addition please follow these simple guidelines:

  • Choose toys that are appropriate for your child's age, skills, and interests.
  • For infants, toddlers, and small children, avoid toys with small parts or balloons that could pose a choking hazard.
  • For children under eight, avoid toys with sharp edges and points, as well as toys with heating elements.
  • Be a label reader. Look for age recommendations and use them as a guide.
  • Read the toy's instructions and make sure they are clearboth to you and your child.
  • Discard all plastic wrappers immediately because they can cause suffocation.
