Here is the answer to your question which is strictly followed by Maple Bear Canadian Preschools:

1. Check for the label of toys whether they are marked as flame resistant or flame retardant if made up of fabric.

2. Stuffed toys should be washable.

3. Materials used for art should be non-toxic.

4. Lead free paint should be there on toys.

1) always pay close attention to the age recommendations on toys and select one in keeping with a child’s age, interest and skill level. Also, remember of different safety labels like “Flame retardant/flame resistant” or “Washable/Hygienic materials” on dolls and other stuffed toys, and learn the way to clean baby toys of every type.

2) Discard any plastic wrapping from new toys instantly because it will create a suffocation risk.

3) for kids one and under, choose toys that are colourful, lightweight, have various textures and are made from non-toxic materials. children this age learn through sight, touch, sound and style and sometimes put things into their mouths to explore them.

4) Don’t offer young kids any toys with small parts like removable eyes, noses, etc., they're choking hazards.

5) inspect all toys for sharp points or edges made of such materials as metal or glass—these toys shouldn't be to kids under 8 years of age. This includes stuffed animals with wires that would stab, cut or shock if exposed.
