Safety advocates have created a list of toys they think can cause injury and death.

This time of year you’ll see tons of toy lists – the wish lists from kids (to buy) and from companies (to sell). But here’s one you might not happen across: The World Against Toys Causing Harm (WATCH) list…

Parents and caregivers need to know what dangers to look for when they purchase toys for children this holiday season and year-round. Unfortunately, there have been many deaths and injuries to children as a result of poorly designed and tested toys. Many of these injuries can be prevented with education about the dangers lurking in toy boxes. The recurrence of many known hazards in toys, as well as numerous recalls in the past year, are clearly suggestive of a broken system that needs fixing before more children are harmed. In the twelve month period since W.A.T.C.H.’s last “10 Worst Toys” conference, there have been at least sixteen (16) toy recalls representing four hundred ninety five thousand one hundred forty (495,140) units of dangerous toys in the United States and Canada polluting the marketplace.

Their nominees for 2012 include a magnetic fishing game, a Power Rangers helmet, Incredible Hulk fists, and a water balloon launcher. You can see the full list and why these items made it at WATCH.
