Wayne Cohen, Washington DC Lawyer Discusses
If you have been injured in a car accident or as a result of a defective product, Cohen & Cohen can help you get the compensation you deserve. And if the holidays have resulted in a toy that has caused you hard, contact us to help you determine your next steps. The holidays have come, and children around the country are captivated by their new toys. But, Massachusetts-based World Against Toys Causing Harm (WATCH) warns that not all toys are safe. In fact, some toys have the potential for significant injuries.
Below is a list of 10 toys that the watchdog group has found are most likely to cause injuries this holiday season. These toys can be found in major retailers, including Walmart, Kmart, Toys R Us and online retailers like Amazon.com and eBay.
- Jurassic World Velociraptor Claws are from the Jurassic World movie. These oversized claws, manufactured by Hasbro and sold for $19.99, have the potential to cause injuries to the eyes and face.
- Early Learning Centre’s (ELC) Toybox Pull Along Zebra toy may appear innocent enough. But WATCH warns that strangulation and entanglement issues are possible.
- Walmart’s Kid Connection Doctor Play Set seems like a bargain at just $4.97. This toy, however, has small pieces and poses the threat for ingestion and choking hazards.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leo’s Electronic Stealth Sword by Playmates International Company sells for $24.99. The sword appears menacing and can potentially cause blunt force injuries.
- The Kick Flipper by PlaySmart Toys appears to be a fun, outdoor toy for kids. This pseudo-skateboard without wheels sells for just $19.99 but has potential to cause head and bodily injuries.
- Advertised as having ‘soft, gummy ammo,’ the Imperial Toy Zooma Splat X Smack Shot appears more artistic than dangerous. But WATCH has found that it is capable of causing eye injuries.
- With a name like Poo Dough, you might suspect that grossing you out would be the worst this toy could do. But this Skyrocket Toys product could potentially cause an allergic reaction. It is labeled to contain wheat.
- Stats’ 38 inch trampoline is sold at Toys ‘R Us for just $49.99. Unfortunately it has the potential for head, neck, and other injuries.
- GD Jiefeng Toys have released a foam dart gun that is labeled for ages three and older. WATCH reports that this is a realistic toy weapon and should not be purchased.
- Perhaps the most innocent-looking item on this list, “Bud” Skipit’s Wheely Cute Pull Along by Bunnies By the Bay is a potential choking hazard.
