The annual Trouble in Toyland report, issued by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group with the support of local health partners such as Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, serves to warn consumers about dangerous or potentially deadly toys on the market each year. Many parents are aware of this list and avoid purchasing these products, but there are other concerns when it comes to toy safety. Using Nurse Sue’s latest health newsletter for child care providers, we have put together a quiz to help you make safe toy choices for your little ones this holiday season.

If you are looking for more information, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has many resources on toy safety for parents, children, and child care providers on their website.
