Toy-related injuries among children and teenagers--United States, 1996.


Each year, approximately two billion toys and games are sold in the United States. Although most toys are safe when risks are measured against the frequency of their use, children are at risk for some toy-related injuries and deaths. To characterize the magnitude of this problem, CDC analyzed data from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for 1996. This report summarizes this analysis and underscores the importance of parental participation in the selection and use of toys.
