We all know that toys are fun. From building blocks and dolls, to puzzles and action figures, toys bring laughter and learning to kids of all ages and are a critical component of their healthy development. But as a member of the medical community (and in many cases, also a parent, grandparent, or caregiver) you may find yourself wondering from time to time if children’s toys are truly safe. The good news? Toy safety is a top priority and year-round commitment that is shared by industry, government, medical professionals, and child development experts.

The magic of play! Getting children to play is easy. Keeping them safe and accident-free takes education, awareness and care. The Toy Industry Association (TIA), celebrating its centenary this year, is committed to keeping children safe at play. In July 2015, TIA launched www.PlaySafe.org, a website dedicated to providing trusted toy and safe play resources for parents and caregivers.
“Continuing TIA’s long-standing commitment to toy safety education, PlaySafe.org is a content-rich destination designed to provide families with accurate information, news, and tips about safe and fun play,” said Steve Pasierb, TIA president and CEO.
