Toy safety group releases annual list of top 10 ‘worst’ toys

BOSTON (AP) — A toy safety advocacy group has released its annual list of potentially dangerous toys.

The “10 Worst Toys” list released Monday by World Against Toys Causing Harm.

The list includes cute plastic animals with tiny accessories that pose a choking hazard, Black Panther-inspired claws with the potential to cause facial or eye injuries, and green slime that could be harmful if swallowed.

The group says with parents looking for ways to keep children occupied during the coronavirus pandemic, and with the 2020 Christmas shopping season approaching, toy safety awareness is critical.

The Toy Association, which represents toy manufacturers, said the list is needlessly alarmist.
