December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month

December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month In December, parents and companies alike can pause to make sure the gifts their kids are receiving and the toys they are playing with are safe. It's officially Safe Toys and Gifts Month, which makes sense, given the toy-centric nature of the holiday season. December's association with toys and other presents for kids is unshakeable, and businesses that make these items should take a little time and effort to produce warning labels that adequately describe their products.

Managing the Risk

Some items are only safe presents if their recipients have reached a certain age. Others have potential risks that kids and parents should be aware of, however old they are. Printed labels clearly giving restrictions and other relevant information are essential parts of toy packaging.

While regulations on this subject must be obeyed without fail, they're only the beginning. Companies should go above and beyond requirements to show they're looking out for customers and kids.

Addressing Danger via Custom Labels

"Safety is important all year round, but December is an ideal month to make sure kids' gifts are properly labeled," said Lightning Labels Director of Business Development AnneMarie Campbell. "Custom labels can be a key safety reminder."

Companies that see an opportunity to make toy age ranges and other warnings clearer, more accurate or more visible can contact Lightning Labels to learn more about custom product labels.<
