Keep your kids safe while they play

Keep your children safe while they play.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that since 1996, 34 children have died while playing with toy chests and trunks, especially the kind with lids that snap shut. Earlier this year, a brother and sister were killed while playing in a chest.

The report says that children can suffocate after climbing into the toy boxes and parents often continue to use chests like this one.
