WATCH unveils '10 Worst Toys of 2017' list

WATCH unveils '10 Worst Toys of 2017' list”

An organization dedicated to educating parents about unsafe toys has released a Top 10 list of what it calls the "10 Worst Toys for the 2017 Holiday Season".

"Behind the statistics are real children that have been injured or tragically lost their life", WATCH President Joan Siff said Tuesday.

Tolo's Pull Along Pony reportedly has a string that's longer than the 12-inch industry standard.

The consumer safety group says the toys listed above should not be considered as the only potentially hazardous toys on the market. "We don't need a testing lab to know that's a strangulation and entanglement hazard", she said.

Those tagged also include "Heel Wheels", which can transform kids' shoes into roller skates, and "Slackline", a tightrope-like device created to be anchored between two trees.

"Slackline" is a tightrope-like device by Brand 44 meant to be anchored between two trees that WATCH says can lead to severe injury and death.

A Disney-themed "stacking toy" for infants recalled in August, but still available online, also made the list.
