Recently, Pedrayes posted a TikTok featuring a list of safety recommendations when shopping for toys.
Pedrayes’ first rule on the list is no water beads for little ones or kids who put things in their mouths. For rechargeable toys, she suggests ensuring the battery has a UL certification or something similar as a fire safety precaution.
Moving on, Pedrayes says that any plush toys for little ones should have eyes that are sewn on instead of button eyes, which can be a choking hazard if they come loose.
For her last toy safety tip, Pedrayes says the string attached to pull toys should be less than twelve inches, so they’re less of a strangulation hazard.
TikTokers appreciated Pedrayes’ tips and suggestions, and even added to her warnings.
“And make sure the toys aren’t on the recall list,” one user recommended.
“And avoid button batteries! Or at least make sure the toys battery is EXTREMELY hard to open!” another user suggested.
When it comes to kids’ safety, it’s always a good idea to err on the side of caution.
