Mommy Matters: Watching out for hazardous toys this holiday season
BOSTON (WICS) —
It's on every child's wish list, toys for Christmas.
But before you start your holiday shopping, a warning.
The consumer safety group called Watch released their list of the most dangerous toys on the market.
Those making the list, a doll with small pieces that could be a choking hazard, a crossbow that shoots with force, a razor brand heels wheels that attach to shoes could spark and catch fire, and other toys marketed for children, even for babies.
“This is a 19-inch cord, but because it's classified as a pull toy even though it's sold for babies, for children that are going to be in cribs, the regulations don't cover something like this so this can be sold,” Watch director James Swartz said.
Other toys making the list, a plush baby stacking toy that was recalled this summer, fidget spinners, a Wonder Woman battle sword, and remote-controlled Spider-Man drone.
The consumer group has been releasing its annual list for more than four decades.
