Massachusetts Group Warns of The Most Dangerous Toy This Year
The holiday season is in full swing which means shopping is ramping up as folks are out and about searching to find that perfect gift for their loved ones. Every year, there seems to be a hot new toy that the kids can't live without. Of course, you and Santa want to fulfill your child's wishes but it's also important to truly know what your child may be receiving and if the gift has any safety hazards.
A Massachusetts-based Consumer Watchdog Group Has Named the Worst "Most Dangerous" Toy for Your Child to Receive This Holiday Season
If you were wondering which toys present potential hazards for the little ones this holiday season, a group out of Boston named World Against Toys Causing Harm Inc. (W.A.T.C.H.) has released its nominee list of 10 worst toys, and right at the top of the list is Disney's The Little Mermaid King Triton’s All-Powerful Trident as this item has the potential for blunt force causing eye injuries (see photo below).
While the Little Mermaid item is the worst toy for this holiday season nine other toys made the "worst" list according to the Massachusetts group. All of these toys can potentially cause physical harm to children. We have included all 10 items below.
