2018s Most-Dangerous Summer Toys For Kids Is Here

A consumer protection group released its annual list of the most  dangerous toys kids play with in summer.  And water balloon slingshots  are #1.  Here are five of the most-dangerous toys you might encounter  this summer . . .

1.  Water balloon slingshots.  They can cause eye injuries.  Especially  if kids use them to shoot other things, like rocks.  And they have  small pieces that are choking hazards.

2.  Lawn darts.  The kind with pointed tips have been illegal since  1988.  But they still make them with weighted tips.  So they're not  sharp, but they can cause head injuries.

3.  Big Wheels, and other low-rider tricycles.  They're really hard to  see when you're driving.  So you have to be careful about when and where  you let your kids use them.

 4.  Swimming pools.  Even those little baby pools you fill with a hose  can be a major risk.  So ALWAYS pay attention when your kids are in a  pool.  Young kids can drown in less than TWO INCHES of water. And it can happen in less than 30 seconds.

5.  Slip 'N Slides.  There's a real risk of head, neck, and spine  injuries.  People have been paralyzed from sliding into stuff, including  other kids.  And YOU need to be careful too, because you're heavier and slide faster.  That's why the packaging usually says they're just for  kids, not adults.
