Dangerous toys ID'd
Consumer safety group picks its 10 worst of 2004, toy industry shrugs off list.
Some of them make sense: The usual choking hazards from buttons and things. I can see how toddlers on trampolines might cause concern.
But this one is just comical:
3 Gun Squad Set - UZ-1 Commando Machine Gun
Age Recommendation: "Not for children under 3 years"
Warnings: "CHOKING HAZARD-Small parts. Not for children under 3 years"
Manufacturer: 411 Toys
SRP: $14.95 (set of 3)
WATCH says: "In today's world, there is no excuse for outfitting children with realistic toy weapons designed to produce dangerous and unnecessary thrills."
Children experiencing thrills while playing? Dear God, no! AAAAAUUGGGHHH!
EDIT: Ok, that's just too good to let go. I'm going to change the title of my blog now...
