Do you know what toys are safe for your kids and what's not?

 

The non-profit group OSPIRG -- comes out with a list every year warning parents about unsafe toys on the market.

 

Evan Preston with OSPIRG  says choking hazards are the biggest concern.  He recommends parents not buy any toys that can fit through a toilet paper roll because your kids could choke on them.

 

For a full list of potentially unsafe toys go th www.ospirg.org and look for the "Trouble in Toyland" list.

 

Besides choking hazards, the dangers of excessive exposure to lead and very loud toys that could hurt hearing are other concerns.
