Watchdog Group Lists 10 Dangerous Toys of 2010

Posted on Jan 07, 2011

January 7, 2011 - With gift-giving season behind you, your children may have a lot of new toys lying around the house. To prevent any potential injuries from unsafe toys, you may want to take a close at those gifts to see if they're on the W.A.T.C.H. 2010 list of dangerous toys.

According to Courier-Journal.com, Massachusetts-based W.A.T.C.H. (World Against Toys Causing Harm), cites alleged dangers in the following toys:

  • Spy Gear Split-Blaster - eye injuries.
  • SupaSplat Splatblaster - eye, face injuries.
  • Buzz Magnets - choking, internal injuries.
  • Kung Fu Panda Sword of Heroes - facial injuries, impact injuries.
  • Ballzillion Tug Boat Play Center - serious injury or death (W.A.T.C.H. advises against using this as a flotation device or around pools).
  • My First Mini Cycle - head injuries, impact injuries.
  • Pull Along Caterpillar - choking hazard.
  • Animal Alley Pony - aspiration or other internal injuries because of easily removable hair.
  • Big Bang Rocket - hearing damage.
  • WalkAroo II Aluminum Stilts - head injuries, impact injuries.

 In 2009 more than 250,000 injuries related to toys led to emergency room visits. That's an increase of 14,700 injuries over 2008. Additionally, in 2009 the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported 12 child deaths related to toys. The majority of those deaths were linked to tricycles and motorized riding toys.

You might be able to file a dangerous products claim if a toy or other dangerous product caused serious injuries to your child. A Philadelphia dangerous products lawyer can look at your case and explain what options you may have to seek compensation for your child's medical expenses as well as pain and suffering.
