Safe Toy Make For A Merry Christmas

Ron King

Do you have a toddler on your gift list? If so, remember that small children and infants automatically put items in their mouths.

Inspect For Safety

Safety is the first thing you should check. Toys with small parts are always suspect. Parts small enough to fit into a tot`s mouth can be a choking hazard.

Plush toys are ideal for small children, but check the construction. If the eyes, nose, or other small features are not tightly secured, these items can come off when a child inevitably chews on it.

Any toy with a sharp edge is a potential safety hazard. A child walking or running with such a toy can fall and be injured

Any Electric Or Heating Elements?

Only children 8 years of age or over should receive electric toys with heating elements. Don`t be tempted to buy these for a younger child just because they would be fun to play with.

Find Out What`s Been Recalled

Before setting out on a toy shopping trip, find out which have been recalled. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission can tell you at www.cpsc.gov or call toll-free (800) 638-2772. You might be surprised to find that some of the leading toy makers have had toys recalled. Some toys on the recall list include:

* Woody Dolls (distributed

* Little People Animal Sounds Farm (

* Drumsticks sold with toy drum sets (

Remove Dangerous Packaging Immediately

Watch for twist-ties that keep toys secure in their packages. They keep the toy looking good on the shelf, but become a hazard when the toy is removed from the package. Also check older siblings` toys for them. They need to be properly discarded to avoid any danger to a younger child. On Christmas morning, you can eliminate a suffocation hazard to your tot

Do Your Research

Popular toys that children are clamoring for are hard to resist. Just do your research first. Keep the holidays happy and safe for your children.

Mixer drums & accessories

Concrete Producer, The , Dec, 2005

400 brinnell drums. Reduced Weight= Increased Payload. Here at Shumaker Industries we are concluding a study on the abrasion resistant qualities of domestically milled AR400 steel. In 1998 we introduced several test drums into the market that were manufactured from half AR200 steel and half AR400 steel. In addition, one complete row of fins is AR200 and the other row is AR400. Result: drums with AR400 steel get the life of a 1/4" drum without the extra weight! Call: 800-326-9349 for more information.
