The 10 Most Hazardous Toys of 2016

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:

  1. Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddles Family: Choking dangers due to small parts
  2. Kids Time Baby Children's Elephant Pillow: Suffocation danger but no warning provided
  3. Slimeball Slinger: Slimeball ammunition can be fired with force strong enough to cause injuries to eyes
  4. Banzai Bump N' Bounce Body Bumpers: Possible impact injuries
  5. Nerf Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster: Possible eye injuries but provides no warning
  6. The Good Dinosaur Galloping Butch: Possibility for puncture wounds due to pointy tail and no warning provided
  7. Peppy Pups: Danger of strangulation due to long cord and provides no warning
  8. Flying Heroes Superman Launcher: Danger of facial and eye injuries
  9. Baby Magic Feed and Play Baby: Spoon has potential to be mouthed, which can block a child's airway. Provides no warning
  10. Warcraft Doomhammer: Danger of blunt impact injury
