The latest recalls of millions of lead-tainted toys have anxious parents sifting through their children's toys and wondering where to turn for more information on what is and isn't safe. Now with FamilyEducation's up-to-date "Recent Toy Recalls" slideshow they have a place to turn to view photos of the toys affected by the recall and get important information about what to do to ensure their children are safe.
This timely slideshow helps parents determine which recalled toys their children have and keeps them informed of new recalls and safety information with links to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's complete list of toy manufacturers' sites.
"When parents turn on the news and hear that millions of toys are being recalled - often some of their children's favorites - they are confused about what to do and concerned about how to ensure their kids are playing with safe toys," said Jess M. Brallier, publisher, FamilyEducation. "As one of the first places that parents turn for information, FamilyEducation is committed to providing parents with the latest toy recall information, helpful safety tips and other resources and expert advice for avoiding the most common hazards in toys."
