“Always make sure all pieces are accounted for and make sure the older kids understand if a drop falls on the floor they need to be picked up right away,” they said in a message.

The post was accompanied by photos showing how small some of the popular collectibles are.

There is a choking hazard warning on every package and a clear age guideline of five years and older.

CPR Kids said they don’t want parents to ban the toys altogether.

“Anything that brings joy to children right now is wonderful,” they wrote.

They recommend that children under the age of three should not have access to the small toys.

And concerned parents agreed with the post.

“That’s why I don’t have them at home,” said a mother of three children, ages one, four, and six.

“Both older girls wanted to get them, but I didn’t want for the safety of my youngest daughter,” she wrote.

Others said they should also be strict when their children begged for the toys at the checkout.

But some have decided to collect the toys for their older children.

“For us, it’s about teaching her how to keep our baby safe. And she can’t miss it just because we have a bub,” one mother said of her five-year-old.

Some mothers criticized parents for not reading the clear instructions on the package.

But the CPR experts intervened quickly.

“Even the most vigilant and well-meaning parents have an accident. All it takes is for an older child to put some in his pocket and drop it into another room that a baby or toddler can access,” they wrote.

CPR Kids is run by registered pediatric nurses who have cared for thousands of sick or injured babies and children.

They offer free first aid advice through Facebook and also offer a range of comprehensive first aid courses.
