Most dolls are safe if used appropriately. But small parts or sharp objects protruding from these toys can cause serious injuries to children.

There are many types of dolls available on the market. Some are designed more intricately than others, and different dolls suit certain levels of children’s age and development.

Small children can choke or suffer serious injuries from:

  • a doll’s removable limbs, head or adornments, which can cause choking
  • exposed and dangerous sharp edges or points, which can cut or prick children
  • brittle plastic material that can break and cause cuts and lacerations to children
  • splinters on wooden dolls, which can pierce children’s skin.
