  • “Verbal Power Plan” Toys – Reading Aloud Exercise I love toys. And I’m nearly fifty years old. I think they’re great fun. Of course I only play with toys with my grandchildren. Toys of any kind keep children happy. Even if it’s a horrible, cheap, free toy from McDonalds, they love them. The thing that amazes me is how little toys have changed. The same toys are in the shops today as when I was a kid. I guess some toys will never change. There’ll always be Lego and cars and toy telephones. The biggest difference with today’s toys is that many are digital. Today’s toys speak to you and children interact with them more. They’re not so good in the bath, though. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of toys. I still love going to toy stores and buying them – as presents, of course.Website: www.symbiotic –situations.com - Symbiotic Situations LLC – Ideas in Reality - “Verbal Power Plan” - Telephone: (852) 8197-4644

  • “Verbal Power Plan”Dangerous toys lurk on store shelves, group warnsVideo Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCpmSLMBUsAWashington (CNN) -- Tis the season to be wary when it comes to buying toys for children this holiday.Toxic and dangerous toys are right now sitting on store shelves, and a public interest group is warning consumers tobeware when purchasing toys for toddlers because of possible safety hazards.The U.S. Public Interest Research Group released its 27th annual Trouble in Toyland survey Tuesday, and the progressreport concluded what it has noted in previous years: toy hazards come in a variety of shapes and forms.Children can be injured from small parts that pose choking risks, strangled by cords on pull toys, lacerated by sharpedges, and endangered by exposure to toxic chemicals.Tents recalled for suffocation riskOver the years, the organization said, its reports have led to more than 150 recalls and other regulatory actions.This years list "includes a potentially dangerous magnet toy, a bowling game that is a choking hazard and a key chainrattle that may be harmful to little ears," it said.Researchers visited national toy stores, malls and dollar stores in September, October and November this year to lookfor potential toxic, choking, strangulation and noise hazards."We should be able to trust that the toys we buy are safe. However, until thats the case, parents need to watch outfor common hazards when shopping for toys," said Nasima Hossain, public health advocate for Public InterestResearch Group, in a release detailing the report.Folding bicycles recalledThe Toy Industry Association, which represents more than 500 manufacturers in the United States, said, "Safety is ourtop priority all year," and a spokesman called the groups survey "another of its needlessly frightening reports.""Its headlines cry for caution but the fine print clarifies that most of the products on their list actually comply withthe strict toy safety standards that are already in place in the U.S.," said Stacy Leistner, vice president ofcommunications for the association. "Our companies are manufacturing to current regulations."Leistner said that with some 3 billion toys sold in the United States every year, "we have a good track record for ourcompanies making safe products."Among the surveys findings:-- Lead exposure from toys remains a serious risk to the brains of young children and "can cause permanent mentaland developmental impairments."-- Magnet toys pose problems, especially if the magnets are swallowed. The Consumer Product Safety Commissionhas estimated there were 1,700 emergency room cases nationwide between 2009 and 2011 involving the ingestion ofhigh-power magnets, nearly three-quarters of them in children between 4 and 12.Magnetic Buckeyballs discontinued-- Two toys -- a car driving wheel on a console and a toy guitar -- exceed the recommended limit for continuousexposure to noise above 65 decibels. Researchers say one in five U.S. children will have some degree of hearing lossby the time they reach the age of 12.-- Several toys contain small parts having what the organization says is improper labeling and "might be mistakenlypurchased for children under 3." Choking on small toy parts such as marbles and balloons has resulted in hundreds ofdeaths over the past two decades.Consumers are urged to examine toys carefully for potential dangers before making a purchase. The U.S. PublicInterest Research Group recommends the Consumer Product Safety Commission review its definition of "small part"or "small toy" to include parts and toys that are larger than the current standard but have been shown to pose achoking hazard. It also calls for "vigorous" enforcement of lead limits in toys.Website: www.symbiotic –situations.com - Symbiotic Situations LLC – Ideas in Reality - “Verbal Power Plan” - Telephone: (852) 8197-4644
