According to research, every three minutes, a young child is treated in
a United States emergency room for a toy-related injury. Additional research
proves that since January 2015, roughly 19
defective toys have been recalled. For this reason, every year, the World Against Toys
Causing Harm (WATCH), a group which promotes child safety, creates a list
of the most hazardous toys.
This year, WATCH states the toys on the 2016 list may be hazardous to children
for a variety of reasons, including sharp pointed parts that can cause
injury and small pieces that can pose choking hazards. In addition, the
organization states that many of these toy labels do not provide adequate warnings.
As of now, WATCH has reported the following 10 toys as the most dangerous:
Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddles Family: Choking dangers due to small parts
Kids Time Baby Children's Elephant Pillow: Suffocation danger but no warning provided
Slimeball Slinger: Slimeball ammunition can be fired with force strong enough to cause injuries to eyes
Banzai Bump N' Bounce Body Bumpers: Possible impact injuries
Nerf Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster: Possible eye injuries but provides no warning
The Good Dinosaur Galloping Butch: Possibility for puncture wounds due to pointy tail and no warning provided
Peppy Pups: Danger of strangulation due to long cord and provides no warning
Flying Heroes Superman Launcher: Danger of facial and eye injuries
Baby Magic Feed and Play Baby: Spoon has potential to be mouthed, which can block a child's airway.
Provides no warning
Warcraft Doomhammer: Danger of blunt impact injury
