Asthma Friendly Toys

Dust and mites are common asthma triggers and both have a special affinity for stuffed toys. Now a new certification program can help parents find toys that are more asthma friendly.

The asthma and allergy foundation of America has developed the asthma friendly certification program, detailed online at http://www.asthmafriendly.com

Toys are tested to ensure they don't contain filling or fabric that would trigger an asthma episode. Follow up care at home includes freezing toys for 24 hours and then machine washing and drying.
