BOSTON (AP) - A consumer watchdog group has released its annual list of hazardous toys ahead of the holiday season.
Dinosaur claws inspired by the movie "Jurassic World," a Play-Doh-like substance that looks like poop, and a quick folding trampoline were among the toys that made the list released Wednesday.
World Against Toys Causing Harm, a Massachusetts-based group, has compiled its ten worst toys list for decades.
It says the velociraptor claws could cause eye and facial injuries, the "Poo-Dough" contains wheat and could cause allergies, and the trampoline can lead to bodily injuries. The group says the toys singled out are representative of common problems in toys.
They group is urging parents to be extra cautious when buying toys online, where nearly 50 percent of purchases are expected to be made.
