I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I can't believe?that nearly nine million children are rushed to the Emergency Room due to home-related accidents and injuries according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). I have three children of my own and in eleven years we have only had to go to the Emergency Room once. Two of the shocking dangers in your home are hot water burns and lead exposure. I have two products that can help keep your babies and kids safe in your home.
According to the Burn Foundation, scalds in the bathtub are the number-one cause of burn injury to children under age 4. Yookidoo Spin N Sort Spout Pro is a unique bath toy that offers a variety of options for playtime in the bath. The water from the tub is drawn up and through the spout creating an endless stream of water. If I had to guess why so many children suffer hot water burns it would be because they want to keep the water running in the tub, and if a parent is not aware that they are doing so I could see how easily it would be for them to be burned. The Yookidoo Spin?N' Sort?Spout PRO is a great option for entertaining your child with running water that is the temperature of the bath water. This bath toy comes with three interchangeable tumblers that each have its own spout function. The Spin?N' Sort?Spout PRO also comes with three spinning gears that attach to the bath tub for more sensory fun.
Another shocking danger in your home is lead a highly toxic metal that can be found in paint and plastic of toys. Lead exposure has been linked with serious health problems that range from mental development and behavior to nerve disorders and other ailments. This is the real danger of buying used toys. ?Parents can rest easy with the colorful Maxi Clutching Toy from HABA USA. Itis made of solid beech wood pieces and colored with a non-toxic water based stain, and is held together with sturdy yet flexible cord. Your baby will enjoy playing with this clutching toy for hours,?and it is designed for ages 6 month and up.
