Top 10 Dangerous Toys from 2015

If your children received a lot of toys this past Christmas, you may want to take a closer look. World Against Toys Causing Harm, Inc. or W.A.T.C.H. has released their list of the top 10 dangerous toys from 2015. If your child has received any of the following toys, it may be best to throw them out to avoid a future injury.

The top 10 dangerous toys are as follows:

Toy 1 – “BUD” SKIPIT’S WHEELY CUTE PULL ALONG – This pull along toy has been named as a potential choking hazard for babies 6 months and older.

Toy 2 – FOAM DART GUN – This dart gun toy resembles a real gun and is deemed unsafe, as children could potentially associate a real gun as a toy.

Toy 3 – STATS 38 QUICK FOLDING TRAMPOLINE – This trampoline is recommended for an age group of 6+. Trampolines can cause head, neck, or bodily injury when not supervised by an adult.

Toy 4 – POO-DOUGH – This play dough that resembles real life poo contains wheat and could cause potential allergic reactions.

Toy 5 – SPLAT X SMACK SHOT – The smack shot resembles a slingshot and is capable of firing ammunition a distance of 100 ft. Parents are advised to use caution, as this smack shot could in fact “shoot your eye out.”

Toy 6 – KICK FLIPPER – The Kick Flipper was deemed a skateboard without wheels and promotes tricks without the use of safety equipment and could potentially cause head or neck injury.

Toy 7 – LEONARDO’S ELECTRONIC STEALTH SWORD – This play sword has the potential to cause blunt force injuries, as children are encouraged to play ninja with this hard plastic sword.

Toy 8 – KID CONNECTION DOCTOR PLAY SET – This doctor playset features a tongue depressor, which could potentially be a choking hazard to small children.

Toy 9 – PULL ALONG ZEBRA – The pull along zebra features a pull along cord that measures 21 inches and could be a potential for strangulation and entanglement injuries.
