Welcome Jacquie – Thank you Shannon On behalf of all of us at Montlick and Associates, we'd like to wish everyone a wonderful and safe holiday season – Jacquie, lots of toys are given this time of the year, as the firm's Family Safety Advocate, what advice do you have for parents regarding toy safety? – To help keep kids safe, we strongly advise that parents inspect all toys brought into the household The safety check is quite simple and can save lives

First, read the label to make sure the toy is age appropriate for your child Read the instructions to understand exactly how the toy works, and examine it physically to make sure it is in good working condition – Any other precautions to take? – Parents of small children need to be certain there are no small or detachable parts, those are choking hazards, and no long chords or strings, anything long enough to get tangled around a child's neck is a hazard Of course make sure that there are no sharp points or edges – What else do parents need to know Jacquie, to help keep kids safe this holiday? – As hard as this may be, if you are not sure about the appropriateness or safety of a specific toy, please don't let your child play with it

– That's great advice Thank you Montlick and Associates for helping keep our kids safe this holiday season For more complete information on toy recalls, evaluating toy safety, and to download the firm's toy safety guide, just go to montlickcom and click on 'Family Safety and Legal Tips,' where you can also register for free safety alerts I'm Shannon Walshe with The Daily 2
