2017's '10 Most Dangerous Toys'

Mostly choking hazards. Sorry, your 'put your eye out Red Ryder BB gun' didn't make this year's list

Fidget spinners, a Nerf crossbow and Spider-Man drone all topped a consumer safety group's list of the 10 toys your child is most likely to shoot their eye out with this year.

The Boston-based World Against Toys Causing Harm, or WATCH, unveiled the list on Tuesday at a children's hospital.

This year, the organization focused the list on toys with small parts that put children at risk of choking and toys with inadequate warning labels. According to WATCH, at least 15 toys have been recalled since last December, including some hugely popular fidget spinners containing high levels of lead.

oh..kay.... IMHO some of those claims are spurious as heck. I'm good with reducing baby choking hazards and itteh bitteh parts, but plastic sword 'may cause blunt force injuries'. Of COURSE it will. That's it's purpose !

"Stop hitting your brother with that !"

First of all, if Dan Akroyd is the company pitchman, that should be a dead giveaway.

What about a football?

More kids are hurt playing football than playing with lawn darts
