Stationery 1: Pencil Colored pencils are essential stationery for many babies in class. They can not only write, but also paint and draw. But for a naughty baby, it is possible to apply the pencil on his hand and face. This may lead to lead poisoning. Lead poisoning is called the 'invisible killer'. The main harm of lead poisoning to babies is to affect brain development and damage many functions of the nervous system, and this damage is also irreversible. You may think that playing with pencils is a manifestation of discovering potential, but things are not as simple as you think. Lead poisoning is a chronic development process. There may be no symptoms at the beginning, but as lead poisoning gradually accumulates in the body, it will gradually harm physical growth and intellectual development. Lead is not easily excreted once it is absorbed by the body. If the baby has learning difficulties, hyperactivity symptoms, inattention, and a sudden drop in grades, it is likely to be the cause of lead poisoning. There are also some babies who can't sit still all day, always want to kick things, and can't control themselves at all. It may also be a sign of lead poisoning. TIPS: After playing with toys, using pencils and crayons, babies should wash their hands frequently to prevent lead from being passed into the mouth. Usually there are few places to play with more vehicles. Parents should also regularly take their babies to regular hospitals for blood lead testing for early detection and treatment.

Nowadays, many children are particularly interested in scented stationery such as fruity ballpoint pens and correction fluids.
