Tested at 150,000 ppm DEHP and 600 ppm cadmium. Although this children's product is not a toy subject to either the CPSIA's phthalates or toxic metals limits, these hazards should be eliminated from all children's products.  "

Um, then why is it in the 'bad toy' list?

FTFA: ....Hasbro's "N-Strike Jolt Blaster" ...

.... and two pose an impact hazard, according to the report.



I am pretty sure that is the point of a fake gun.... back in my day we had to say pew, pew and get pissed because the dick you were playing against always said missed me.

I saved Jarts from when I was a kid, as well as the Riviton building set, some Erector sets from the '60s, gave the kids Sizzlers and Bucky Balls, rigid plastic swords, and any number of "dangerous" toys.

They had a trampoline, skateboards, bikes, scooters, and numerous Airsoft & BB guns.

The key to safety?  Be a parent, teach your kids how to not be stupid, and keep an eye on them when they're messing around with stuff until you know they're not stupid.

They learn things are dangerous and fun, yet need a certain respect.  Fast forward to now, and the high-schoolers have free access to their guns and archery equipment, hand tools, and power tools.  While I'm at work they occupy themselves shooting things, practicing archery, and building things.

Or we could wrap everyone in bales of fleece padding and wonder why they cannot leave the nest in their late teens or early twenties.

the only time i think it matters to pay close attention to the toys you give your kids is when they're infants/toddlers and they have a determined purpose to eat everything they touch.

once they have basic understanding and body function, you can create the appropriate amount of respect for the toys they play with.

What about the My Little Pyromaniac: Arson Is Magic playset? Comes with zippos, gasoline, thermite, high explosives, white phosphorous, and everything else you need to ignite the passion in your little firebug.

What does W.A.T.C.H. stand for?

World Against Toys Causing Harm

And what does that mean?

It means we really wanted it to spell "watch".

W.A.T.C.H. OUT! Young children are encouraged to "attach steel to turbofy" this rigid
plastic sword, measuring approximately 2 feet long. The blade has the potential to cause
facial or other impact injuries.


...it's a 3lb piece of plastic. In the hands of a human being with all the muscle-development of limp spaghetti.

And, "attach Steel" refers to an accessory that comes with the toy...also made of plastic.

/but, please, resume hyperventilating at the sight of a toy weapon
