Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
On July 25, 2012, funny gifts manufacturer and distributor, I Am A Stuffed Animal, released a statement in response to the removal of children play toys in doctor offices. Toys, specifically those found in public play areas, are known to be contaminated with an array of germs, but throwing them out comes with the price of disappointed children.
According to an article in The Telegraph, general practitioners are instructed to discard of all toys—including puzzles, teddy bears, wooden trains—because they are considered to have the potential of spreading germs from one child to the next. Dr. Brunet, a general practitioner, rebuttals this notion for the removal of all toys, stating that the toys are great distracters for children while parents are consulting the doctors, as stated in the article.
Additionally, if toys need to be removed from rooms, then why shouldn’t cushions and carpets have to be removed as well? A spokesman in the article states: “Rumors that practices will have to throw out toys from their waiting rooms have no basis in fact. This and other rumors such as carpets and soft furnishings in waiting rooms will have to be removed due to infection issues control are absolutely false.”
The funny gifts manufacturer suggests parents’ bring their own toys to the doctors or other places, eliminating the need for worry over germs and infection. This way, if the order to remove toys still stands, parents can provide their children distractions while they await their visit.
