I have young kids and I am totally guilty of not thinking a toy purchase through before I brought it home...case in point: slime. That stuff is the worst, but let's not get started on that right now.

Instead let's talk about the toys your kids may be asking for this Christmas that could come with consequences far worse than the price you paid for them. According to WGN TV, the group World Against Toys Causing Harm, Inc. (W.A.T.C.H.) has come up with their list of the top 10 worst toys to buy for Christmas 2019, chosen by the threats they pose in the hands of young children.

Nerf Ultra One: W.A.T.C.H says this toy shoots so far and with such force that it could cause eye injuries

Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog: W.A.T.C.H. says the "quills" of this porcupine could cause choking when young children put them in their mouths.

Bunchems Bunch’n Build: I know for a fact these Bunchems easily get tangled in a child's hair, and trust me, it's not pretty to get them out.

Yeti : W.A.T.C.H says the hair from this Yeti plush can easily be ingested or aspirated  by children.

Nickelodeon Frozen Treats Slime: We already established that slime is the worst toy ever, but slime that looks like ice cream is just begging for kids to eat it, which is something they should absolutely NOT do.

Diecast School Bus: W.A.T.C.H says the rubber wheels on this bus come off and pose a risk of causing a serious choking injury.

Pogo Trick Board: I had something similar when I was a kid, and yeah, I fell off it and messed myself quite frequently when using it.

Power Rangers Electronic Cheetah Claw: W.A.T.C.H says the manufactures states not to "hit or swing at people" with this toy, but seriously, what else are you supposed to do with it?


* For the record, I do realize that I just told you NOT to buy these toys for your kids this Christmas, but then I provided the links so you could do exactly that. If you feel your kids are responsible enough to play with these toys in the way they are intended and will not eat them, put any parts in their mouth, or claw someone eyes out with them, then by all means buy away.
