2007 "10 Worst Toys List"

I've just discovered W.A.T.C.H. (World Against Toys Causing Harm). This non-profit corporation was founded by Edward M. Swartz, a lawyer and child safety advocate, who has been warning against dangerous toys since 1968! In fact, the "10 Worst Toys List" has been going since 1973. Of course this year more than ever, parents are being vigilant about the safety of the toys they purchase for Christmas. This is the big year the toy world gets turned on its ear, and it's about time! Check out the "10 Worst Toys List", and for extra help in choosing safe toys, try W.A.T.C.H.'s "Toy Hazards to Watch Out For" list.

This list really disturbs me every year.

In the past my kids have received mostly wooden, felt or cloth toys. Now that they are getting older the plastics are rolling in. What is a mummy to do?

Thanks so much for including this on your blog. I'm a new mom of an 8-month old little girl, and all of these reports in the past few months have been terrifying. I'm afraid to let my daughter play with anything!
