Child Accident Prevention Trust
Lots of us will be doing our shopping online this Christmas thanks to Covid-19 restrictions and shop closures.
Buying presents online - especially children’s toys - can also be a great way to discover some bargains and save money.
However, the number of dangerous toys sold online to unsuspecting families is on the increase - so it’s good to be aware when buying presents this year.
For example, did you know that if you buy a toy from a third party seller via one of the well-known online marketplaces, it might not meet UK safety standards?
Online marketplaces are simply offering a shop window to sellers around the world and aren’t legally required to check if a toy is safe before allowing it to be sold.
Some of these toys may be dangerous and, as a result, could cause serious injuries to children.
