This holiday and summer season, show that you love them by treating them with gifts which they can enjoy and at the same time, can help protect from injuries at home, at play and on the road. What to buy: A booster seat for your child. Jazz it up and let your imagination run wild (tell them it s a jet pilot or race car seat). Remember, kids are safer in a booster seat until they re big enough to fit an adult seat belt properly. The easiest way to tell: If they re under 148cm tall, they still need a booster seat. A cycle helmet. If Lance Armstrong needs one, your kid will too. Let them pick their own helmet and remember to be a role model (buy and use one yourself). Tools with safety locks. Nothing pleases dad more than a brand new power tool. Buy one with a safety lock, and protect curious little hands by storing them out of children s sight and reach. A portable pool fence. Owners of small or portable pools still need to comply with pool safety regulations. A portable/ flexible pool fence is a perfect gift to help enjoy the summer season safely. Smoke alarms. If you ve visited a relative or a friend s house and notice that they don t have a smoke alarm, buy one as a present (don t forget the batteries). What better gift than one that could save their lives in a fire. What NOT to buy: Toys that are choking hazards. If a toy can fit inside the hole of a toilet roll, it is a potential choking hazard for babies and toddlers. Baby bath seats and rings. Bath seats and rings give a false sense of security, and using one can be danger- ous. Babies can slip or get trapped underwater. Baby walkers. Babies could fall against fires, down stairs and off decks if they use one. They could be burned by hot water from pots or microwaves they shouldn t have been able to reach, or poison themselves with medications and cleaning products parents thought were stored high enough. www.safekids.org.nz. Stroke statistics a concern Urgent measures are needed to reduce the growing number of stroke victims in New Zealand, says Professor Valery Feigin, Director of the new National Institute for Stroke and Applied Neuroscience. Currently costing the country over $450 million per year in hos- pital and rehabilitation- related costs alone, stroke incidence in New Zealand is the second highest amongst devel- oped countries and numbers are only increasing, says Feigin. Unlike most other developed countries where stroke incidence has declined by 42 percent over the last three decades, stroke incidence in New Zea- land declined by only 11 percent in New Zealand Europeans, while in Maori and Pacific people it has increased by 19 percent and 66 percent respectively.
