Toy related injuries send a record number of kids to the E.R. every year, points outs a study carried out by Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The study went on to elaborate that more than 3 million kids across the U.S. were treated in emergency rooms during the period 1990-2011 due to injuries caused by toys. Not only that, one child was rushed to the E.R every three minutes due to toys related injuries in the year 2011, one of the main culprits being toy scooters.
Now while toys are said to foster learning and creativity in kids besides helping improve on their cognitive skills, this study indicates that parents need to buy toys for their kids after a lot of careful deliberation.
