How to Select the Right Educational Toys

Is it Safe?

Without a doubt the crucial element when choosing any academic toy for your child is security. The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission(ACCC)has actually published a number of posts concerning safety standards & safety details, as well as keeping a restriction list and remembered items list. This is advised as your first point of call when researching any items for your baby.

Beware of pre-owned and hand-me-down toys as they might be broken, missing pieces, or missing important security details. Make certain to give them a comprehensive examination prior to enabling your kid to play with them.


You are the last line of defense when it pertains to your child’s safety, always ensure they are monitored specifically when playing near water, even very shallow amounts.
