Safe Toys

Holiday

Guide

FOR YOUR TOT

BUYING TOYS FOR YOUR CHILD Before you buy a toy for your child, check if the toy is appropriate for your child’s age, and whether it is safe for your child. There can be a lot of hidden hazards concerning toys that parents may not realize. Avoid Toys with Small Parts Especially for children under age three, small or loose parts can come unattached and pose a danger if swallowed. Read and Follow Warning Labels Warning labels usually warn if a toy poses choking hazards for young children (typically under the ages of three) due to small parts. Electric toys also have warning labels. Check Toys for Sharp Edges and Points This is especially important for younger children since they have a tendency to put things into their mouths or into their eyes. There is always a danger of falling on top of the toy while playing, which also may cause injury. Check Toys for Cords and Strings Long cords and strings can be hazardous and may become tangled tightly around your child’s neck or an appendage. Look for Toys that are Sturdy and Strong In case of any falls or accidents, the toy should not break into pieces with sharp edges because this can cause bodily injury to the child.

Check if the Toy is Too Loud Check if the noise levels are tolerable and the toy has volume control. Too-loud toys can permanently damage the sensitive hearing of children. Make Sure the Toy is Non-Toxic If you are buying toys like crayons, art supplies, or any liquid-containing toys, make sure that the toys do not contain toxic chemicals. You can check the labels to make sure they are safe in case of accidental ingestion. Make Sure That the Toy is Not Recalled Consumers can get the list of recalled toys and children’s products by going to the CPSC Web site, www.cpsc. gov, or by calling toll-free (800) 638-2772. Choose the Right Toys Most toys are rated for specific age ranges. Select toys to suit the age, abilities, skills, and interest level of the intended child. This is especially important for children with developmental delays and disabilities. In general, look for toys at or slightly above your child’s skill level. It is important for children to have toys that they can successfully play with as well as those that challenge them.

CYS Services will be open December 12 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM to give parents a chance to do some Christmas Shopping. Special hourly care rate for this day only is $2.00 per hour per child. Your family must be registered with CYSS to participate. Care for Infant to Kindergarten-aged children is available in Bldg 4249. Care for 1st through 5th Grade is available at SAS Bldg 4768. Make Reservations NLT 4 Dec by calling CDC at (502) 624-6708 or SAS at (502) 624-6903. www.KnoxMWR.comŇ'HFHPEHUŇ

The holiday season is a time when families usually get together to reconnect, share old memories, and enjoy the traditions associated with this time of year. When you come from a military family, however, you may have to come up with creative ways to celebrate if your spouse is deployed.

friends or relatives may have sent you. You can also send your spouse a small gift package with his or her favorite holiday treats and surprises — a stocking, some candy, a Christmas book, or a CD. One of the best ways to cope with being apart from your spouse during this time of the year is to stay busy. Staying busy during the holiday season will help you to keep your mind off the fact that your spouse is deployed. Get together with friends and go caroling or to a holiday party. If you are new to the area and don’t know that many people, then perhaps you could throw your own holiday party and invite all of your neighbors. It’ll help you to meet people in the community and make new friends, and you’ll have a good time. www.KnoxMWR.comŇ'HFHPEHUŇ

Holiday

Guide

SPENDING SMART FOR THE HOLIDAY Shopping during the holiday season can be a hectic task. With all the rushing about, holiday shopping can be one of the most stressful things that you face. In this article, we’ll talk about some methods of tackling the confusion and stress that usually goes along with shopping during the holidays. Some studies have shown that the average American consumer spends roughly $702.03 per holiday season. Since holiday spending can really add up, it’s important to look at your shopping goals realistically. To help manage your holiday gift fund, one important first step to take is to make a list of all of the expenses you will face when doing your shopping. Don’t just put down the items that you will be purchasing as gifts; consider the fact that wrapping paper, gift bags, and shipping charges will weigh into your budget as well. Once you’ve got a nice list to peruse, look at ways that you can cut corners. Also, when you see the big picture of how much money you’ll be spending, you will probably be more prudent with your spending. Leave the credit cards at home. Many holiday buys are decided upon unexpectedly, and people oftentimes feel that if they are putting the gifts on their credit card, they will not have to worry about the payment, at least for the moment. These types of purchases can really add up, and leave gaping holes in your holiday budget. Take your time to comparison shop. Going to several different department stores to search for the best deal on an item that you are considering purchasing can really pay off. If you’re connected to the Internet, it may be a good idea to let your fingers do the walking — shopping online can make it very easy to find the best deal on an item you’re considering. There are many sites online that provide services that give you ample opportunity to search for the best deals on whatever product you may be considering. Following these simple tips can work wonders when it comes to helping to stretch your holiday dollar. You can often satisfy those that you are buying for just as well by following the above techniques, while saving yourself hundreds of dollars. ŇOpportunity Knox
