Toy Safety Reminders on First Coast Connect

Wayne Hogan spoke with Melissa Ross on WJCT’s First Coast Connect to get the word out about toy safety and the ten toys that made it on W.A.T.C.H.’s 2020 “10 Worst Toys” list. W.A.T.C.H. stands for World Against Toys Causing Harm, Inc.

 

They discussed how toys contain safety hazards: projectiles such as dart guns and sling shots that may cause eye/facial injuries and small removable parts that are choking hazards for kids 3 and younger. Another common hazard is toxic toys that contain lead, cadmium, phthalates or substances that could cause allergies.

He also touched on a safety concern of buying online: the inability to see and inspect the toys and read the packaging and warned consumers shoppers to be aware of buying second-hand toys from sites such as Craig’s list and eBay that may have been recalled.

The Terrell • Hogan personal injury and wrongful death law firm represents families whose kids have been injured or killed by dangerous toys, which includes investigating toys with flawed designs. The firm is committed to getting the word out about unsafe toys and recalls on its website throughout the year.
