Irresistible toys could pose personal injury hazards

Children in cities across the country, including in Spokane, look forward to the holidays in anticipation -- crossing their fingers that their gifts will include at least some of the irresistible toys they saw on the shelves of stores and online. They have no idea of the dangers some of the toys pose, and fortunately, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls most of the items that pose personal injury threats. However, some toys are not recalled before they have caused harm. For that reason, parents will be wise to inspect all toys before they buy them as well as gifts from other people.

Although stores are not allowed to leave recalled products on their shelves, parents might want to look out for the following recalled items that might still be available in some stores or online. Slap bracelets are furry panda, heart and unicorn designs that cover metal bracelets, which could pierce the covering fabric and cause cuts. Self-Esteem clothing sets for little girls come with an enclosed metal pendant on a necklace that could cause strangulation, and they could be toxic when children put the decorations in their mouths.

Another dangerous range consists of water bottles with tractor, hedgehog, shark, horse or fish print. Parents must take note that the spouts of these bottles can detach, allowing a small ring to pose a choking hazard. Portable, battery-operated bedside nightlights in the shape of giraffes also pose choking hazards because the feet of the giraffe shape are detachable.

These are but some of the recalled toys, and Spokane parents might have purchased some of them already because they were only recalled after being available throughout 2018. Parents whose children were injured by dangerous toys might have grounds to sue the manufacturers and their chains of supply. However, this is a challenging process, and plaintiffs might need the support and guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney to navigate the legal proceedings for them.
