The Worst Toys To Get Your Kids For The Holidays

There is always a list of toys that are popular every year for the holidays but there is also a list of the worst toys you can get your kids! According to Fox31, there are about 9 times you must stay away from. 

Fox31 didn't make this up - it comes from a group called WATCH which stands for World Against Toys Causing Harm Inc. that you test toys out to find harm so that they can make parents aware of the affects on the kids.

1. Nickelodeon Nella Princess Knight Pullow Pets Sleeptime Lites: This illuminated pillow pet presents a choking hazard and has a “battery acid leakage” hazard, according to the manufacturer.

2. Nerf Vortex VTX Praxis Blaster: W.A.T.C.H. says the launch force of the disks included in the nerf gun presents the possibility of eye and facial injuries.

3. Marvel Black Panther Slash Claw: “These rigid, plastic claws, based on a popular comic book and movie character, are sold to five-year-olds to “slash” like the Black Panther, while simultaneously advising not to ‘hit or swing at people,'” W.A.T.C.H says.

4. Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel Superstar Blade: W.A.T.C.H. says this plastic sword could cause facial and other “impact injuries.”

5. Cabbage Patch Kids Dance Time Doll: The consumer group says the doll comes with a removal headband, which could be ingested by kids.

6. Zoo Jamz Xylophone: This xylophone is marketed to babies as young as 18 months old, but the manufacturer provides no warnings that the 9-inch-long drumstick handle could be a choking hazard.

7. Nici Wonderland Doll: Miniclara the Ballerina: W.A.T.C.H. says the doll comes with a “little kitten” accessory, which could detach and become a choking hazard.

8. Stomp Rocket Ultra Rocket: While there are many warnings on the packaging, W.A.T.C.H. says these plastic rockets can cause serious eye and face injuries.

9. Cutting Fruit: These fake, magnetic fruit coming with a plastic knife to ‘slice’ them. The product is aimed at kids aged 2 years old and up, but W.A.T.C.H. says the knife is made of hard plastic and can cause puncture wounds and blunt trauma injuries.

Just because toys are made for kids, doesn't meant hey are always safe so make sure no matter what, you keep your eyes on your kids when they play and try to not buy any kids this for Christmas.
