News Summary: Consumer Group Sees Toy Dangers
The Associated Press
TOYING WITH TROUBLE: In its annual "Trouble in Toyland" report, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group examined more than 200 toys at major retailers and dollar stores and found about a dozen that could be dangerous to children.
NAUGHTY, NOT NICE: A Dora the Explorer guitar, dragster cars with small wheels and finger-fidget desktop magnets are among the toys that consumer advocates warn about.
GOT THE LEAD OUT: Lead and other toxins were less a concern, thanks to a 2008 product safety law that ushered in stricter limits on metals and chemicals in toys.
