(WRIC) — The annual “Trouble in Toyland” report has been released, listing almost two dozen toys to watch out for this holiday season.
Some parents we spoke with say safety is not always top priority when they go shopping for their kids.
Eleven toys contain small parts posing a choking hazard. It’s something emergency room doctors often see. Doctors say parents should examine toys for hazards and you can do that with a simple test. Take a toilet paper roll, if the toy fits inside it could pose a choking hazard.
“World Against Toys Causing Harm” or watch has put out its list and named dinosaur claws inspired by the movie Jurrasic World as its most dangerous toys. The group says the claws can cause eye and face injuries.
Also on the list, quick-folding trampoline, foam dart gun, and doctor play set.
“We really have to look into things before we buy them and consider certain toys that could be a hazard for your child,” said parent Jerome Jackson.
