As a parent, you try to do everything you can to make sure your child is safe. You read all the books, read all the blogs, and consult with all the experts you can find. But, no matter how hard you try there is always something that can go wrong. For example, you forgot to put the scissors away after a delirious night of wrapping presents for your child’s birthday party. Before you know it, your oldest has just now adorned your youngest with a brand new hair cut. Or, you are walking with your kid on a blustery day only to realize that the buttons on their coat have fallen off. You use your bobby pins to create makeshift buttons, but now you are walking around looking like a hot mess hair. The stories are endless of little things that go wrong on a single day, but the important thing to keep in mind that even if something doesn’t go right at least it doesn’t hurt your child.
When something hurts your child it is one of the worst feelings in the world. At first, you are super concerned for your child but then the anger starts to slowly boil. Then you go on a full rant to whatever it was that hurt your child. However, sometimes the thing that hurts your child are the things they use every day like their toys or their clothes. Did you know that over 100 products a year are recalled due to safety hazards for children? Did you also know that only 30% of the recalled products ever make it back to the manufacturer? So where do all these toys go? They get sent to goodwill, sold at yard sales, sold on eBay, or given to other parents; all without knowing the danger of these products.
Many products that are recalled tend to be for choking hazards. For example, Brio Baby Hammer is a cute toy meant to mimic a real hammer for the babies that are into tools. Unfortunately, this hammer can shatter if hammered too much! The shattered pieces are small enough to create a choking hazard. Seven hammers have reported shattering and are being recalled. If you and your kids like to build then you may be interested in Panelcraft Rainbow Dreamer Magnetic Building Sets. The problem is that contained in the sets are mini magnets that can fall out if the set is damaged; thus, causing a choking hazard.
