General Safety Tips For Swimming Pool Toys

Meanwhile, the Toys Advice website shared five important safety reminders for inflatable swimming pool toys:

  1. Check the warning labels for inflatable safety instructions, and age recommendations.
  2. Always choose toys that suit the age and abilities of the child you are buying the toy for.
  3. Avoid small parts on toys intended for children who still chew everything in sight.
  4. Check how the toy is made before you buy it. If there are any attached parts they should be secured. Seams in inflatable toys also need to be tight.
  5. Check that any toys which contain sand or other materials don’t leak.
