    Letting young children have all their toys out at once: The risks


    Children love playing with toys, that’s a fact. However, they also seem to love getting all their toys out at once even if they are only playing with one or two of them. This is when a simple game can turn into a slip, trip or fall hazard.

    How can a slip, trip or fall injury be caused by toys?

    The more toys that are out on the floor, the more cluttered the floor or surface becomes. The more cluttered the floor becomes, the harder it then becomes to walk on the floor without having a slip, trip or fall. This applies to the grown-ups and the children and could cause a nasty trip injury depending on what type of toy you fall over.

    How to prevent a slip, trip or fall over toys

    The main thing you can do in order to minimise the risk of a slip, trip or fall is to control the amount of toys the children can get out to play at once. If they can’t stop themselves getting all the toys out then as the grown-up you could get the toys out so that the children do not get a say in how many are on the floor.

    Another way of avoid a slip, trip or fall injury is to allocate an area for the children to play with their toys; this could be in the corner or in a little play pen. By isolating an area that toys need to stay in, it is a lot less likely you will have a slip, trip or fall as you will know exactly where they are and they will be easily avoidable.

    It can be difficult to avoid a slip, trip or fall especially when children are involved. If you do have a fall injury that wasn’t your fault you may be eligible to make a claim.
