Did you know that there is an organization called World Against Toys Causing Harm (“WATCH”). They are an organization committed to ensuring children are kept safe from harmful toys and they produce an annual list of the 10 most dangerous toys available. The group claims that at least 19 toys have been recalled as a result of safety defects since January 2015.
There have been thousands of dangerous and defective toys manufactured over the years, and as you can see above, the problem persists to this day. Some toys are defective or dangerous by design, while others are unsafe due to a manufacturing defect or damage caused during shipping or use. Toys can be dangerous in many different ways and include both chemical and biological exposure hazards.
The above represent serious injuries and children across the country experience these tragic events every day. Sadly, some of these instances prove fatal for the children involved. Irresponsible toy designers and manufacturers need to be held accountable for injuries caused by dangerous toys.
