Are legos a safe toy for children?



  1. 0 Votes

    As with all toys with small parts, Legos are not recommended for children under the age of 3 due to the possibility of being swallowed and causing the child to choke. Lego’s productss meet all mandatory and voluntary standards set by regulatory bodies and are not generally considered dangerous at all aside from the choking hazard. All Lego products that may contain a choking hazard are clearly marked.

    Legos are an excellent and safe toy for any children over the age of 3!  The Lego company takes safety very seriously and abides by all EU and US rules for building legos.  They are a great source of imaginative play and can be enjoyed by almost any age group.  Additionally Lego factories recyle all but about 1 percent of their plastic wasate from the manufacturing process every year.  It the plastic cannot be re-used in Lego bricks, it is processed and sold to industriees that can use them.

    Traditional, small Lego pieces are not recommended for children under the age of 3, and some Lego sets have very small pieces that are not for children under age 6. Toddlers can enjoy Duplos, which are made by Lego but have much larger pieces that cannot be swallowed. Duplos are also easier for toddlers to grasp and play with. The Lego website suggests products according to the age of your child.

    All the previous answers are correct in stating that Legos are not recommended for children younger than three. However, I would like to point out that they can be potentially unsafe for children over than three. Parents should follow the recommendations as guidelines, but judge by the maturity of their individual child. I’ve seen a five-year-old child almost choke on a Lego, but I’ve also monitored children as young as two playing with Legos, making sure that they don’t put pieces into their mouths. So overall, the recommendation of age three is a great safety guideline, but parents should judge the child’s maturity, and monitor their children.
