Annual US PIRG Toy Safety Report
"A report released Tuesday from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group found just over a dozen toys on store shelves that violate federal safety standards for lead and chemicals called phthalates or could present a choking hazard to small children. The toys deemed potentially dangerous included a whirly wheel, a plastic book for babies, a wooden blocks set and a Sesame Street Oscar doll."
The leading most dangerous toy for the last several years continues to be balloons.
40% of all choking deaths in children are caused by balloons. This one is a no brainer to me-and fwiw, I have worked for YEARS to have area businesses cease giving latex, helium inflated balloons to children.
Yup, I am no fun.
Here is the link to the report:
