Consumer group releases list of annual dangerous toys


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Before you hit the toy aisles this holiday season, you may want to take a minute to think about what's safe for your kids.

A consumer advocacy group, released its annual list of dangerous toys today.  Noise, size, and toxic substances are all factors.  While most of the toys meet standards, the group feels there should be stricter rules.

"I think parents would be concerned about the fact that standards aren't quite strict enough to get rid of all the choking hazards that may be on the market and I think most parents would want strict standards to make sure that toys sold for their children, aren't going to pose a choking risk," says Joe Rasmussen, WISPIRG Program Associate.
