When you’re a parent, your child becomes the centre of your universe and you want to keep them safe. They are young and unknowing and you’re responsible for shaping their lives and making sure they are left with the proper skill set that will turn them into successful adults. There are so many milestones that they will reach throughout their lives: their first car, their first house, their first girlfriend or boyfriend. Before all this though, they are playing with toys, crawling on different surfaces, and touching everything they can put their hands on. At this point in their lives, you have something else to worry about; making sure they don’t swallow any small pieces and keeping them safe.
Your house is a playground for your small children. When you spend a day at the park you make sure to give your children a bath before you let them go on about their day to wash away any lingering germs. But what you may not think about are all the germs that accumulate on their toys. Your child is constantly putting their fingers in their mouths, touching different objects and repeating this behaviour. Although the object that they are playing with may seem clean, it can be filled with germs and bacteria that can lead to them getting sick and in the worst-case scenario, to disease.
We are here to show you how to get your baby toys spick-and-span so that the bacteria, dirt and grime that have collected on them do not affect your children’s health. The most important piece of information is on the tag. Here, you will find instructions on how to care for your toys and which methods of cleaning work. For example, a lot of the tags will tell you whether machine washing your baby’s toys is okay or not.
