    The dangers of leaving small toy parts around with young children


    Leaving small toy parts around when you have young children poses all kinds of risks. Here are some of these risks.

    Dangers of leaving small toy parts around with young children

    One of the main dangers of leaving small toy parts around with young children is, of course, the risk of choking. Young children often explore their world by putting things into their mouth. A small toy part could get lodged in a little one’s throat and cause serious, even fatal injuries by choking.

    Small toy parts with sharp points or edges could also cause injuries to your child’s feet (and your own feet) if stepped on.

    Preventing injuries

    Choking and other injuries by toys can be prevented by:

    • Not leaving small toy parts around
    • Buying safe toys suitable for your child’s age
    • Discarding damaged or otherwise potentially dangerous toys immediately

    Sadly, sometimes even toys that were supposed to be safe can be dangerous. A defective battery-operated toy, for instance, could seriously injure a child of any age.

    Claiming for compensation

    If your child was injured by a defective or otherwise dangerous toy, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim on behalf of your child.
