Lead Paint in Children's Toys: A Cause For Concern?

You've probably heard about recent discoveries of lead paint in some children's toys. There has been quite a bit of concern surrounding toys imported into the United States from China in particular, as their regulations for lead content in paint aren't as strict. While the toys recently being blamed for high lead content are brand new and made overseas, they aren't the only possibilities when it comes to lead paint. Other toys that pose this risk are those produced several generations ago, such as something a grandparent or great-grandparent once played with, that's now been passed down as an heirloom.

Lead poisoning occurs when lead somehow finds its ways into the body. This usually happens through eat...


Too Old to Own a Pedal Car?

"Growing old" is a term that many of us associate with dread, as it tends to emphasize misused time and the joy and adventures of a youth long forgotten. At mid-life, it becomes common to reflect upon one's life. Unfortunately, warnings such as "Enjoy your youth while you can," simply aren't taken seriously, and many people find themselves realizing that they grew up too fast, and try to recapture some of the joy and playfulness that was so abundant during childhood. It is not unusual for memories of the pedal car to stand out during this time of recollection. Some might say that a pedal car - or even an entire pedal car collection - is for children, but don't we all harbor our childhood self somewhere inside of us? The memories we associate with a special toy can be rejuvenated later in life, and why not allow yourself to do so with an actual pedal car? A person who played with a pedal car early on in life is likely to continue the fascination with cars in some form, whether it was in the form of building m...


Keeping The Kids Out Of Your Hair With Garden Toys

While it is a recent concern that kids are spending too much time in front of the television or computer, it is up to the parents to promote outdoor play. For added fun, there are a wide range of outdoor toys that can be purchased that will make any child want to play outside all the time! One of the most popular types of garden toys are play sets that feature slides, swings and sandboxes. These play sets are made from sturdy wood materials and have options for expansions. Swing sets were once common amongst public areas, but now families can have the same jungle gym fun right in the convenience of their own garden. Best of all, many reputable companies sell do-it-yourself kits that allow families to work together to build their own swing set. Customize yours by choosing the colours of choice, adding monkey bars or changing the type of slide. Trampolines are another example of outdoor toys that are sure to offer plenty of fun and exercise for kids. Trampolines are always a hit and kids love the non-stop fu...
