This Morning: Be careful buying toys for small children


December is “Safe Toys and Gifts Month” and it’s timely because so many items are being purchased for the holidays.

Mickie Kreft of Safe Kids Capital Area and Sparrow Hospital stopped in to 6 News This Morning to talk with Bonney Bowman about what people should watch for when shopping for toys for younger kids.

Batteries can be a danger for small children, as are items such as television remotes.

Watch the video above for more details and some safety reminders for parents.
