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:
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.
