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
