Toys can pose a serious choking hazard, especially to children under 6. And unfortunately, our research has found some toys marketed to younger children without warnings on website or on the boxes. But, you can keep your kid safe by seeing if smaller parts fit through a toilet paper roll before letting your child plays with the toy. Watch the video to test for choking hazards. 

In addition, you should never let a child under three play with balloons, and monitor any child under 8, as balloons are the #1 choking hazard for children.
