Parents urged to watch out for dangerous toys

Filed under:

If you'll be shopping this Friday or weekend, watch out for some of those toys which could be choking hazards to those small children. Although toy recalls have made headlines this year, there are sure to be plenty of dangerous toys still lurking on shelves.

The most obvious culprits are small toys, since everything and anything that can go into a child's mouth actually does go there. Keep an eye out on sizes and remember this quote: "Consumers looking for toys still face an industry full of safety loopholes." Comforting, yes?

It's always been wise to scrutinize, but this year an extra effort should be made.
