25 November 2008

A safety-conscious organisation W.A.T.C.H (World Against Toys Causing Harm) have released their list of the 10 Worst Toys for 2008. The full list is here, but here’s some of the choicest selections from it…

DIGGER THE DOG
What Is It? A pull toy that claims to be 'your child's best friend.'

So What’s The Problem With It Then? It has a 26” cord and would easily hang most small children.

ANIMAL ALLEY PURSE SET
What Is It? Soft, colourful pony purses.
So What’s The Problem With It Then? The hair comes out and would choke a kid in seconds.

SPORTSMAN SHOTGUN
What Is It? A very realistic-looking ‘toy’ firearm.
So What’s The Problem With It Then? It comes with rubber bullets. You could literally have someone’s eye out with it. If the cops don’t blow you away first.

INFLATABLE GIGA BALL
What Is It? A giant inflatable ball that kids are encouraged to crawl around inside.
So What’s The Problem With It Then? Where the f*** do you want us to start?
