Dinosaur claws among items on annual list of dangerous toys
BOSTON - A consumer watchdog group says dinosaur claws inspired by the movie "Jurassic World" and a substance that looks like poop are among the worst toys for Christmas this year.
The Massachusetts-based World Against Toys Causing Harm released its annual list of hazardous toys Wednesday.
The group says the velociraptor claws can cause eye and facial injuries, and the Play-Doh-like substance contains wheat that could cause allergies. The list also includes a quick-folding trampoline, which the group says can lead to injuries. WATCH says the items singled out represent common problems in toys.
The group also urges parents to be cautious when buying toys online, where nearly half of purchases are expected to be made this year.
