WATCH's 2006 List Of Ten Potentially - Dangerous Toys

W.A.T.C.H. Group (World Against Toys Causing Harm), for the 34th time, has published an annual list of 10 toys// with the title 'Most Dangerous Toys of 2006' to watch out for. 'Don't assume that all the toys are safe' says James Swartz, an attorney and director of Boston-based WATCH, which is being funded by donations.

He added that toy shelves are potentially stocked with dangerous toys which may cause a choking hazards to eye injuries. Mattel's recall of about 4.4 million Polly Pocket sets, announced Tuesday, is just one example of what can happen. WATCH suggested that the parents too have to take some responsibilities in this issue.

WATCH's mission is to alert manufacturers and others. The mission aims that 'there needs to be more attention paid in the design process, in the testing process ... because the manufacturers are in the best position to know the toys, know the regulations.'

Moreover WATCH suggests that it would be better if the toy companies, retailers and the Government listen and act when dangerous toys are brought to their attention, which might help in reducing the list of the same hazards and the same injuries getting repeated year after year. The current facts prove that the existing standards are inadequate and more priority is needed in safeguarding the children.
