Plunket national child safety adviser Sue Campbell says while a few minutes of gentle sunlight is good for chil- dren, infants and toddlers can quickly burn in the sun. Gentle sunlight is the light during the early morning and later after- noon through the sum- mer months, and at most times during the winter. We all love the sum- mer weather but we need to remember to slip, slop, slap and wrap,'' Ms Campbell says. Children also learn by example so seeing you wear a hat outside and covering up is the best way to help them develop good habits.'' Sunburn can put people at higher risk of skin cancer.

A symbolic tree-like structure known as Pou Manawa dominates the new-look departure retail space at Auckland airport's inter- national terminal. The architectural and audio- visual showpiece was launched by mayor Len Brown and Associate Transport Minister Nathan Guy. The opening celebration was hosted by actor Temuera Morri- son. Pou Manawa stands nine metres high and its billowing can- opy features a cycle of different colours on a fabric surface area measuring 577 square metres. It was designed by Ignite Architects and artist Michael Knapp. Traditional Maori designs created using projectors and LED lights dance across the canopy to music by New Zealand artists Rewi Spraggon and Riki Bennett. The continuously rotating 360 degree images by Kingi Gilbert depict carvings, nature and birds and symbolise travel, flight, voyaging and movement across vast expanses, oceans and airways, guidance and hospitality. Airport retail manager Adrian Littlewood says the installation will be a memorable feature for all who pass through the airport. The retail expansion features new outlets and food options as well as new brands. Toy danger from high lead level Parents are urged to check their children are not playing with toys found to be highly toxic. The Commerce Commission is investigating a number of toys sold in bargain variety stores fol- lowing testing which detected excessively high levels of lead. The Consumer Affairs Ministry referred six products to the com- mission this month. The toy at the highest end of the range is 314 times above the allowable level. Go to www.comcom.govt.nz/ product-photos to view products and where they are purchased from. The commission has begun investigations as a matter of extreme urgency and is working towards a recall of the products. Because of the extreme results from this testing we are immedi- ately alerting consumers who have bought these toys to their highly toxic content. Where child health is con- cerned we cannot afford to be com- placent. No child should play with the toys that have been identified,'' Commerce Commission enforce- ment manager Greg Allan says. Mr Allan says the toys should be removed from the household. Parents who are concerned that their children may have played with these toys can arrange for a blood test through their GP to see whether their child has ingested any lead.
