Toy safety group releases list of dangerous toys


BOSTON -- World Against Toys Causing Harm held its annual news conference in Boston, Massachusetts Tuesday to show some of the most dangerous toys they found on the market this holiday season. The group argues that the government doesn't do enough to ensure that toymakers sell safe toys.

The group says its list tries to highlight toys with clear hazards. This year that includes Sticky Stones, which are magnetized rocks that can stick together in the intestines.

The group also warns that Jack Sparrow's Spinning Dagger, based on the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, could cause serious eye injuries.

Another toy, the Spider-Man 3 New Goblin Sword, isn't supposed to be jabbed at people, but the group says it's marketed so that kids do exactly that.
