BOSTON (AP) — A child safety group has released its annual list of what it calls dangerous toys.
The list issued Tuesday by Boston-based World Against Toys Causing Harm, or WATCH, includes a plush elephant pillow the group says poses a suffocation hazard, projectile-shooting toys that could lead to eye injuries and toys with small pieces that could choke a child.
In addition to injury potential, the group says the 10 toys on its 44th annual report have inconsistent and inadequate warnings, cautions and age recommendations.
It was released ahead of the 2016 holiday shopping season, which accounts for almost two-thirds of all U.S. toy sales.
The Toy Industry Association, a trade group representing toy makers and sellers, says the list is "full of false claims that needlessly frighten parents and caregivers."
