Working for Change
Safe Kids works closely with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to ensure that unsafe toys do not make it into the hands of kids or onto store shelves. Safe Kids advocates for CPSC to have full authority and resources to deal with unsafe toys.
Safe Kids also produces a twice-monthly newsletter to inform parents of any recent recalls. Sign-up here to receive these news alerts.
In addition to our work with the CPSC, Safe Kids works with other consumer organizations to advocate for the removal of rare-earth magnets from the marketplace.
