The scientists found out: if there are visible pollution on the toys, then on the surface the size of a small dot will fit 250 000 bacteria. But we will only talk about the most dangerous of them.

Staphylococcus aureus - the cause of more than 100 different diseases,Accompanied by inflammation of the internal organs. Especially dangerous is staphylococcus for newborns. Diphtheria bacillus is the causative agent of an acute infectious disease, which is characterized by the strongest intoxication of the whole organism. It enters the external environment with saliva and can persist on balls and sovochkah up to 2 weeks. And on dusty soft toys - more than 3 months!

Wand of Koch Is released from the sputum of a sick person and canBecome a causative agent of tuberculosis. Kokh sticks survive on the pages of books for 3 months, and on toys - and that longer. Adenovirus causes fever, accompanied by inflammation of the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract and eyes, enlarged lymph nodes. Viruses can persist on toys for several days. Up to 90% of the adult population is infected with the herpes virus. The virus stands out from the sick person and is transmitted to the healthy through various objects, including through toys. Rotavirus causes diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. The source of the infection is a sick person. With dirty hands, bacteria get on toys and other objects and can last for several days.

Game without harm
What are the rules that must be followed so that toys bring only good emotions to the child and his parents?
1. When buying a new toy, pay attention to its packaging - it should not be damaged.
2. Do not decorate the baby's room with soft toys. The baby is unlikely to appreciate the beauty of a huge teddy bear, but the dust and bacteria will surely be liked by the bear.
3. Plastic toys do not accumulate dust, bacteria do not stay on them for so long. But a new toy, before giving a small child, it is necessary to wash it with a proven disinfectant.

6. The younger the child, the more care must be taken for the toys. If the toys of older children are to be washed as they are contaminated (for a beloved doll it is enough once a week), rattles and other toys for babies require more careful care, for example boiling.
7. To a special category belong toys such as pipes, lip accordions - those that children take in their mouths. Through them, the pathogens of various infections are transmitted especially often. Therefore, these toys can not be given to uninvited babies. Even if the child is healthy, bacteria causing caries can live in the oral cavity.
8. Ask older children to take junior toys only with clean hands, since bacteria that are not dangerous to adults can cause infection in the baby.
9. With particular care, we need to wash toys that were visited with a child in a polyclinic. Most bacteria and viruses can persist on the surface of plastic toys for more than 2 days. And, that on a toy there were bacteria, it is enough to them, simply to touch or cough near to them. A small study on the presence of potentially dangerous microorganisms, conducted in the United States, showed that 20% of all the toys examined in the hospital were found bacteria.

The place where the child plays, clean especially carefully. Wash floors with solution, because children like to play onSex and often drop on him rattles and dice. If the carpet is lying in the nursery, then in two weeks he accumulates up to two glasses of dust.
