Posted by CooperVision on Tuesday, December 13, 2011

We at CooperVision would like to remind everyone that December is “Safe Toys and Gifts Month”.  It is important to keep children’s safety in mind when Holiday shopping; be sure to follow the tips listed below when purchasing gifts for children: 

  • Always follow age recommendations when purchasing gifts for children.
  • Keep the ages of younger siblings in mind when choosing a gift, always air on the side of caution when there are younger siblings in the household. ¹
  • Choose toys that may inspire creativity and imagination; these toys will make learning fun.
  • Select toys and gifts that encourage visual development; this will build a child’s spatial awareness.¹

Here are some last minute gift ideas listed by age group recommended by www.gifts.com that are considered eye-friendly and will help build visual awareness:
