The World Against Toys Causing Harm (W.A.T.C.H) organization has released its list of the 10 worst toys of 2018 and as the 2018 holiday shopping season approaches you may want to check out the list of nominees for the top 10 worst toys of the year.
The Boston-based non-profit organization was created to monitor toys and other children’s products and informs the public about the dangers associated with them. The main goal of the W.A.T.C.H organization is to prevent injuries and deaths and increase public awareness about hazardous children’s products.
Each year during the holiday shopping season, the organization releases its list of the 10 toys that “should not be in the hands of children” because they are potentially hazardous or have been recalled. W.A.T.C.H. has promoted awareness about the potential dangers of certain children’s products for more than 40 years and continues to fight to bring about change and reduce injuries to children caused by dangerous toy sold in stores and online.
Earlier this week, W.A.T.C.H president Joan Siff and director James Swartz discussed some of the classic hazards found in children’s toys and products and how many of them still exist today during a press conference at Franciscan Children’s Hospital in Boston. The organization highlights that today’s toys still contain small parts, strings, toxic substances, rigid materials, incorrect labeling and other dangers that could be hazardous to children.
