Avoid these dangerous children’s products this Christmas

On Behalf of | Dec 2, 2021 | Defective Products |

You want to get the very best Christmas presents for your children. You love them and you want to make this holiday special and memorable. You spend a lot of time looking into all of the best possible products on the market and comparing them with your children’s interests.

As you do so, make sure you also consider just how safe these specific products are, and think long and hard about the risks they may pose. Children are injured by toys, clothes and other products every year. You need to know what to avoid, so let’s take a look at some of the items that may pose the greatest risk.

Hannah Anderson baby clothes

Sometimes, even the most unassuming items are dangerous, no matter how safe they look. For instance, two types of baby clothes from Hanna Andersson have been recalled this year. They are the Long Sleeve Wiggle Sets and the Baby Ruffle Rompers. In both cases, there are serious choking hazards, as the buttons can come off of the clothes. Considering how children like to put everything in their mouths, this is very dangerous, especially if they’re in bed or not being watched 100% of the time.

Wooden backyard playsets

Some backyard wooden playsets have also been recalled, and the issue is with the design. While most children who use them will not be injured, there is an area where children can become trapped. If this happens and no one else knows, the child could be stuck for a long time, leading to serious injuries or even death.

Off-road vehicles and ATVs

ATVs and other off-road vehicles are very popular with children and adults alike, and some of the smaller ones are designed specifically for children. However, many of these models have been recalled due to crash hazards, and children have even lost their lives in these accidents. While there is always an inherent risk with a vehicle, the number of recalls indicates that some vehicles pose an inordinate risk. Many parents think of these vehicles as toys and don’t consider the danger when buying them for their children.

What options do you have if your child is injured?

If your child gets hurt and requires serious medical care, it is very important that you understand all of the legal options that you have to seek compensation when a defective product is to blame.
