(HealthDay News) -- Before you buy any holiday toy, make sure the maker's age recommendations are appropriate with your child's age.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says the manufacturer's age recommendations can help you decide if:

  • A toy is safe for a child, including whether it poses any choking hazard.
  • Your child can play with and enjoy the toy.
  • Your child can understand how the toy works and what to do with it.
