USA: 150,000 Children Injured Every Year Because Of A Toy

Since 1990, more than 3 million young Americans was admitted to the emergency room because of a toy. Wheeled toys are considered to be the most dangerous.

USA 150,000 Children Injured Every Year Because Of A Toy

This study should calm the ardor of the parents who are about to rob the stores at this time of Christmas. Between 1990 and 2011, more than 3 million American children were injured with a toy, according to a study published in Clinical Pediatrics.

Thisfigure takes into account children who were admitted in an emergency service, on average 149 000 annually, including a majority of boys (63.4%). The number of hospitalized children has increased by 40% since 1990, and at the age of 2 years that thestudy identifies the largest number of cases. However, injuries change as children grow. Thus, the risk of suffocation with small objects is particularly less than 3 years. Furthermore, over the period of follow-up, 109 000 young Americans swallowed or inhaled foreign bodies.

This represents 14 cases a day. Older children were more likely to hurt themselves with toys on wheels (scooters, carts, tricycles…). Holders represent 34.9% of injuries and 42.5% of admissions to the hospital. Experts are particularly concerned about scooters, causing a high number of accidents. Between 2000 and 2011, almost 60,000 children have been injured by this type of object, or one every 11 minutes.

 “The frequency and the increase in the rate of injury in children associated with toys, particularly those associated with scooters, are of concern. They point to the need to increase efforts to prevent these injuries,”says Gary Smith.
