National Safe Toys and Gifts Month is observed in December and sponsored by the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
National Safe Toys and Gifts Month recognizes that, in recent years, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has created a robust toy safety system, by requiring testing by independent, third party testing laboratories around the world, enforcing stringent lead and phthalates limits for toys, imposing some of the most stringent toy standards in the world, and stopping violative and dangerous toys at the ports and in the marketplace before they reach children’s hands.
