These Are the ’10 Most Dangerous Toys of 2016′

Published on December 17, 2016 by   ·   No Comments



It’s that time of year again. Your kids are (hopefully) on their best behavior in the hopes that Santa’s elves will report good things back to the North Pole. Parents, my wish for you this holiday season is that your little ones don’t request too many noisy presents, or gifts that require 15 batteries to operate. More importantly, I hope that your family has a safe and happy holiday – so let’s take a look at the 10 ‘most dangerous toys’ of 2016.

1. Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddles Family.

The packaging on this toy is confusing. Some of the labels say it’s for children age 3 and up, and others say for age 2 and up. The packaging also doesn’t warn about choking hazards for 2-year-olds.

2. Kids Time Baby Children’s Elephant Pillow


The advertising for this cute “toy” (kind of hard to call a pillow a toy) depicts an infant snuggling with it. One little problem: pillows for children under age 1 are banned by a federal safety act. The package shows no age warnings.

3. Slimeball Slinger

This sounds like a lot of fun – you can fire “slimeball” projectiles up to 30 feet. But that famous line in the movie “A Christmas Story” sums up the danger perfectly: “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.”

4. Banzai Bump N’ Bounce Body Bumpers


Imagine miniature sumo wrestlers with no concept of their own strength and limited agility, and you’ll understand why this one is so dangerous. Designed for kids 4-12, these “body bumpers” consist of inflatable body suits that allow your youngsters to slam into each other, breaking every lamp in the house, and probably a few bones, too.

5. Nerf Rival Apollo Xv-700 Blaster


Another great way to lose an eye. The ad shows kids wearing masks covering their face and eyes, but those items are sold separately.
