If exposure to intense noise is continuous, it disturbs sleep, affects children’s cognitive development and can cause psychosomatic illness. Other effects in children, such as alterations in the level of blood pressure, are still under investigation.

In fact, given that the nuisance caused by noise are considered a health problem, there are plans as the “Children’s environment and health” at the European level which aims to which children are protected from exposure to harmful noise both at home and at school.

At home, the children play with their gifts regardless of volume, approaching the toys to the face and ear and many times not knowing to control the volume (if you can) and without limits in play time. So we must be attentive to the sound level down wherever possible, and limit its use so that it is not harmful to the sensitive ears of children.

The charity hearing is attention to hearing impairment key has warned about the dangers of the noise-making toys from the 60 decibels.

  • Buy those toys that have volume control or not exceed 85 decibels.
  • If the sound is very strong, use adhesive tape on the speakers to reduce the intensity, but if the child is small because it may remove the tape and is a new danger. In these cases, the best is perhaps the most drastic solution: remove the batteries to the toy or make that “lost” during a season.
