Safety and Toys for 6 Year Old Boys

Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping for toys and gifts for a six year old boy.

  • Production – Where a toy or gift is made can tell you a lot about the quality and the safety requirements that were in place while the toy was produced.
  • Materials – Unfortunately, it is still necessary to check for lead or lead based paint on some toys. This is especially true for toys imported from other countries. The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission is a great place to start.
  • Small Pieces – Even at four years old, you want to make sure the toy does NOT have a lot of small pieces that can be swallowed, causing a child to choke. Playing with a child at this age is also recommended.
  • Age Appropriate – The best bet is to buy toys that are recommended as age appropriate for babies. These days, toys include information about the suggested age range of children.
