Most Dangerous Toys 2019

World Against Toys Causing Harm (WATCH) unveiled its annual list of 2019’s Most Dangerous Toys. The potential injuries include, as usual, choking hazards and eye injuries:

1. Nerf Ultra One: a gun that fires Nerf-tipped missiles “up to 120 feet.” (* Yeah, with a good wind maybe.)

2. Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog: a plastic hedgehog with plastic “quills” measuring approximately 3 1/2 inches long that can be removed and swallowed.

3. Bunchems: multi-colored activity balls that are meant to stick together in building activities. There have been report of the plastic, connective toys becoming snarled in children’s hair. SNARLED!

4. Yeti: a “cuddle” toy with long, fiber-like hair that can be pulled out and injested, like a hairball.

5. Nickelodeon Scented Slime: slime that smells like “mint chocolate chip”, “berry smoothie”, and “soft serve.” At the same time, the manufacturer issues a warning: “NOT REAL FOOD – DO NOT EAT.”

6. Anstoy Electronic Toy Gun: it looks like an automatic rifle. It shoots small water pellets that explode on impact.

7. Pogo Trick Board: a board with a ball in the middle. Basically, it’s like balancing on a board sitting on top of a bouncy ball.

WATCH also reminds you to eat Cream of Wheat every morning, rice cakes for dessert and never go outside without your mommy holding your hand. Also, how did WATCH manage to overlook these toys. They seem way more dangerous than anything with the work “Nerf” in the name…
