Germ protection in playrooms
that are shared should be wiped off at least once a day -
more often if children are at the stage where they put them
in their mouth. For toys that can't be wiped off, it is advisable
to discourage sharing. If your child is sick, have him select
one stuffed animal to play with during that time and then
forget to sanitize the furniture in the playroom, too. Rails
of playpens and trays from high chairs are breeding grounds
for germs. The antibacterial substance is embedded in the
plastic and does not necessarily kill germs on the toy's surface.
Treat these antibacterial items like all other toys and wipe
Don't let children play with toys of other kids even if you
are assured that it is safe.
