Some unsafe toys might be on Santa's naughty list

Many residents of Tampa, Florida, who have children will probably be giving at least one toy to a child or even a baby this holiday season. While they should of course keep in mind what sort of toy the child might enjoy, they also need to keep in mind how safe the product is for the child to use in the first place.

In this respect, at least according to the opinion expressed in one report, there are several toys on the market that miss the mark for safety, and thus might be best left off one's Christmas list.

For some of these toys, the issue might be more one of branding and providing proper warnings to consumers. Adults and many kids can probably figure out, for instance, that a Nerf gun or a stomp rocket could hurt, but the branding of the product may persuade them to overlook or even outright ignore the risks, even though this risks can include serious eye injuries and other issues.

In other cases, however, particularly with respect to some of the infant and toddler toys on the list, there may be some hidden choking or strangulation hazards that a will-meaning Florida adult may not be aware of until it is too late. One toy in particular including a long string since it was marketed as a pull toy; the manufacturer give no indication of the obvious strangulation hazard string presents to babies and toddlers.

Hopefully, parents and kids and Tampa will be able to weed out dangerous toys from the stockings and thus have a safe and enjoyable holiday season. However, parents who did happen to have children, or others, who get hurt by a dangerous toy should also know they may have the option of filing a products liability case.
