Toy Dangers

<div class="StoryBlock">
The Better Business Bureau put out a list of toys that can be hazardous every year.&nbsp; As you prepare to do some holiday shopping for your little ones, there is a list of things you should look out for.&nbsp; Carlos Flores, trauma coordinator for Valley Children’s Hospital says, it’s important to look for age appropriate toys for your children.&nbsp; If you have children that are crawlers or toddlers, make sure that the toys they play with don’t fit through the inside of a toilet paper roll.&nbsp; If it fits through the roll, then it fits in the child’s mouth and they can swallow it.&nbsp; If swallowed, batteries and magnets can cause serious injuries and even lead to death in some cases.&nbsp; <br /><br />Flores reminds parents, if you get your child anything that has wheels on it, buy the appropriate safety gear as well such as a helmet and knee pads.&nbsp; Helmets can reduce brain injuries by up to 80%.</div>
