Age Group Labeling
Toy manufacturers are required to label toys to indicate which age group should be using that particular toy. If the toy is labeled for certain age groups, it is not considered safe for children below that age group to use the toy. Unfortunately, a toy manufacturer may mislabel a toy or inappropriately label a toy that is, in reality, too hazardous for the noted age group to use, causing untold harm to the child. Typically, toys for young children fall into the following categories:
- Under 1 year – These toys generally include rattles and large, soft toys, such as stuffed animals
- 1-2 years – Blocks that are too big to fit in the mouth, large balls, books
- 3-5 years – More complex toys like toy cars, roller skates, puzzles, etc
Neglecting to follow these general guidelines can result in serious hazards, such as choking hazards, which may have devastating consequences for both the child and their family.
