Child Safety Group Releases Unsafe Toys List; Says “Assuming Can Be Dangerous”


A Massachusetts-based watchdog group has released its annual list of 10 worst toys as retailers gear up for the holiday shopping season. (Nov. 15)

World Against Toys Causing Harm, Inc. (W.A.T.C.H.) released their annual list of 10 worst toys and warned not assume a toy is safe just because it is designed for a child (10 Worst Toys List [PDF]).

Parents and caretakers are encouraged to take three steps for a safer holiday season:

1) Know that not all toys are safe

2) Be familiar with the common, sometime hidden, safety traps

3) Inspect toys and packaging before giving them to children.
