If you’ll be buying toys for upcoming holidays, make sure they are age-appropriate—and safe! Check out the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s list of product recalls and safety tips.
Search for toys, products for babies and toddlers, clothing and more.
The CPSC recommends that you select toys to suit the age, abilities, skills and interest level of the intended child. For young children, avoid toys with small parts, which can cause choking, toys with sharp edges and electric toys with heating parts. Download the CPSC’s guides on Buying Toys for Children Ages 0-5 and Ages 6-12.
