Toy Consumer Safety Group Releases List of Worse Toys This Season


Some toys are safer than others. World Against Toys Causing Harm (WATCH) revealed its annual list of the worst toys for the holidays yesterday (November 19th.) It 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 yeas, 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.
