Dangerous toys online – do you know what to look for?

1 Dec 2020,

Child Accident Prevention Trust

More parents shopping online plus increasing numbers of dangerous toys for sale via online marketplaces mean a heightened risk of children suffering serious harm.

Dangers include:

  • Magnets so strong they can burn through a child’s gut if swallowed
  • Long cords that can strangle a child
  • Small parts that can choke or suffocate a child
  • Easy access to button batteries that can get stuck in a child’s food pipe, causing internal bleeding and even death.

But there are ways to spot and avoid dangerous toys when shopping online.

That’s why we have put together simple, practical advice that you can read, copy and share at the push of a button, during a call, or over your social channels.

Let’s help families shop safely this Christmas.

Thank you for your support!
