Humidifier – Humidifier is ideal for children’s bedrooms, but make sure that it stays beyond baby’s reach.
Cosmetics – Curious kids will be interested in your lipsticks, nail polishes, eyeshadows and soft, fuzzy brushes. But we must remind you that these products are toxic and the makeup brushes may have
Balloons – Part of every birthday party, but both inflated and especially deflated, balloons pose a big choking risk for kids. You need to know that 43% of all deaths from children’s products are from latex balloons.
Art Supplies – In 2009, 35,000 calls were made to poison control centers by parents who were worried about their child’s exposure to art supplies. That is why you need to be careful when buying art supplies. You should buy non-toxic materials, and make sure that your child never puts this stuff in its mouth.

Cotton Swabs – They are a big risk especially for babies.
Water Bottle Caps – If babies find bottle caps, they will try to swallow them for sure.
Dog Food – Dog food can cause choking.

Earbud Covers – Make sure that your child doesn’t put them in its mouth.

Magnets – When magnets are swallowed, they attract to each other from inside the digestive system and can cause holes in the stomach and/or intestines. Small magnets are banned, but they can still be found in some toys.
Children’s Metal Jewelry – Many metal jewelry pieces still have high amounts of lead which are a poison when ingested and can cause learning and behavior problems. Buy lead-free labeled products.
Pen Caps – Babies can swallow them easily.
Sleep Positioners – The scariest thing about sleep positioners is that many believe that they prevent SIDS when the truth is totally opposite. FDA and the CPSC strongly discourage their use.
Laundry Detergent Pods – These detergent pods have caused more than 700 hospitalizations in the last two years (and sadly, one death).
Toothbrush Covers – Babies can choke from them.
We believe that most of the parents already know about the possible problems that can be caused by these products, but we still want to remind you about them.
