CPSC Guidelines for Age-Related Activities

Summary: Guidelines for ages when children are ready to use wheeled toys and vehicles from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission's Age Determination Guidelines: Relating Children's Ages To Toy Characteristics and Play Behavior. Note that an individual child's development rate may be very different from average expectations. CPSC updated the guidelines in 2020.
