    Hello. You may have remembered I was on a few months ago with a questionnaire and now I am back! This particular questionnaire (well its more like a question!) is about toy safety. I would really appreciate if you could contribute!

    When buying a toy for your child what would you consider?
    *It has a safety mark (Lion mark, CE mark, British standards Kitemark)
    * It is the right age for your child
    * It will provide more than just temporary interest
    * It has no sharp edges or points
    * It is good quality and wellmade
    * It isn't second-hand
    * It has been reviewed by a toxicologist
    Other____

    Can you please list what you would do and add any I have missed out! Thank you very much!!

    - safety mark
    - good for more than just temporary use
    - if it is educational/helps development
    - good quality; well made
    - reputable brand, well known company
    - right age for child
    - reviews online (if available)
    - if I think it's interesting
    - if friends have purchased it/their kids enjoy it
