Scrooge Releases List of Worse Toys This Holiday Season
Some toys are safer than others. There is a certain risk level that should be left up to the parents whether or not they will allow their child to be exposed to something someone else says is potentially dangerous. But it's really about common sense. From kids to grand kids, I'm a guy who enjoys getting down on the ground and playing with the new, hot, must have toy, and we will just let life happen.
You may be more cautious.
So, when World Against Toys Causing Harm, (WATCH), revealed it's annual list of problematic toys, we thought that it might be something you'd be interested in. WATCH says many of the products present choking or other safety hazards.
Some of the toys on the list include the Nerf Ultra One gun (which they say shoots soft darts with enough force to cause eye injuries), and Nickelodeon's Frozen Treats Slime (as it contains food-like scents for its slime, which isn't actually edible.)
Though WATCH has released a list like this for more than 40 years, the Toy Association, a toy industry trade group that represents most of the toy makers named on the list, says the list is misleading, and suggests parents always purchase toys from reputable stores and online sellers.
