Best option - laminated or toughened glass?

What is the difference? I have a child - am I right in saying that toughened glass is more dangerous if smashed? Is one more secure than the other?

hello, toughened glass ,when broken, will shatter into thousands of harmless small pieces which are less likely to cause damage than standard glass, whereas laminated , as the previous tradesman said , will retain its shape, just crack and stay together,

I would recommend Laminated glass as it stays together if broken.
