Online shopping can make life easier, especially in the run-up to Christmas. But, some cheap toys from online marketplaces can be deadly, as Dr Punam Krishan explains.
High-risk toys best avoided from unknown brands and sellers include those with:
• Super-strong magnets that can rip through your child’s belly
• Easy-access button batteries that can kill your child if swallowed
• Long cords that can strangle your child or small parts that can choke them
• Chargers that can catch fire or wires that can cause electric shocks
