Buyer's Guide: Beach Toys For Older Kids

Buyers Guide: Beach Toys For Older Kids


The perfect time to break your children from their phone screens is during the long, hot summer days. You can transform a dull beach afternoon of digging in the sand into a day filled with imaginative play by giving your children beach toys.

Beach toys are great fun for children. There are many options, but the 'sky is the limit' in terms of variety. They provide hours of imaginative fun and physical stimulation.

Tips For Choosing the Right Beach Toys



  • Check the materials

  • Look for durable toys

  • Read the manufacturer's guidelines

  • Research on the chemical ingredients


Check the Materials


Beach toys should be non-toxic and made from materials that do not encourage any fire hazard. The beach can be too hot, and any hazardous toy that cannot withstand the sun's heat must not be taken to the beach.

Look For Durable Toys


Durability is an important deciding factor when buying a beach toy; plastic is the best choice for beach toys. It is durable, weatherproof, sun-resistant, and strong. It is also lightweight, can be stored for future uses, and can be easily cleaned. Toys that are labeled durable should be capable of enduring regular cleaning routines.

Read the Manufacturer's Guidelines


Seek the manufacturer's guidelines for age appropriateness. In addition, most toys are meant to be played in the sunshine. But some toys will work better in the shade or the darkness. Bright colors and small lights are best for playing outdoors. Avoid toys that use prominent, bright colors like red that will tend to attract mosquitoes. These details are reflected in a toy's guidelines.

Research on the Chemical Ingredients


If you are buying a toy set for older kids, always check for the chemical ingredients used to make it. The amount of chemicals will determine how harmful the toy set can be. So, be sure to purchase a non-toxic plastic toy set if you want to provide a toy set of safe play for your child.

Safety Precautions Before Taking Your Kids to the Beach


1. Before you go, check the Swim Guide for any swimming advisory. Also, look out for flags or signs at the beach. You can be at risk of drowning if you touch the sea.

2. If a swimming advisory is posted at a beach or swimming spot, it is important to stay clear of the sand. Sand can hold pathogens for longer than water.

3. Three days after heavy rain or storms, avoid contact with water. Heavy rain can cause wastewater to overwhelm treatment facilities, resulting in sewage bypasses. After the water has been tested, water quality testing results are not available for 24 hours to 48 hours. This means that a beach may not be closed or posted with an advisory if the health unit does not take preventive measures. Water quality issues can also be caused by runoff from fields or septic tanks in rural areas. Always assume that rain events have contaminated the water to be safe.

4. Lookout for pipes. These are the areas where contaminants will be at their highest.

5. Don't swim if the water smells or looks bad. For instance, don't swim if the water looks or smells milky, murky, scum, algae, strongly smelling of sewage, or otherwise hazardous.

6. Pay attention to your toes. Many health authorities advise you to avoid wading in water if you cannot see your child's toes. This is because you might step on something sharp, or the water could be polluted.

7. Rinse off. Many public beaches have showers. It reduces the likelihood that your children will bring a rash or an infection home with them if you wash your hands after they have finished swimming.

Remember:


When you are choosing beach toys sets for your kids, keep in mind that some kids might not be as gentle as others, so be sure the toys are age-appropriate for their age group. For example, a two-year-old might like the floatation devices on the floatables, but an older kid might have issues with it breaking and ingesting sand. Always check the label for safety warnings. Allergic reactions can be severe if a toy is defective. It's better to be safe than sorry, especially when your child's health is involved.
